NTL Netguard

Is there anyone using this security feature. I am using AVG and Zone Alarm at the moment and am wondering if I should change. AB68

Don't change, you have better protection already, if Netguard goes wrong for any reason it is a nightmare to fix your system. I speak from experience.

Hmmm....Iv'e jumped the gun so to speak and swapped. Will just wait and see. Thanks anyway

I've just moved from Tiscali to Telewest (which is now part of NTL) they invited me to install their netguard program, but on reading their blurb, the first month is free then it would cost £6 per Month to continue. I don't think it will do much more than Adares and Spybot would do. So be wary.

Adares should read Adaware, sorry.

Been with NTL for years but never felt the need to lumber myself with Netguard. Happy with ZA and AVG at startup, and occasional spring cleaning with Adaware, Spybot, A squared and Crapcleaner

Thanks all, will see. However, the change has got rid of the nagging "Windows no disk" "There is no disk in the drive" pop up box which was such a dammed nuisance at bootup, and took seven or more clicks of the mouse to clear! Might just go back to the other two in due course. AB68
