Swift software cheep as chips

I have just purchased a set of internet protection software by Swift. It seems to have everything that normally costs £ £40 or £50 it was from a big retailer at 1tenth the price. I have not yet installed it, has any one used it if so what do you think.

Never heard of the software so I wouldn't use it myself. Sorry.

I don't know the software, but the date is a problem. What was a threat in 2004 isn't a threat now, and what is a threat in 2006 wasn't even a twinkle in the eye in those days...

Defensive trenches of World War I versus Apache ground attack helecopter, maybe?

Is this the firm? They seem to cover just about everything. But I am not familiar with their products. So can't comment.

There are a LOT of small players in the antivirus field, and some of them are quite good. Most are rubbish, unfortunately. With an av product, you may find out which camp it falls into by personal experience - the hard way!

I'd opt for a known quantity. I pay for mine (Kaspersky, PC Cillin and F-Secure here), but the free AVG, Avast, and others is pretty reputable.

I'd guess this is it click here

Not higly rated and sounds like a mish-mash of several products in one box.

As others say, the free versions of several tools will do the job. E.g.:-

AVG Free Anti-virus

Zone Alarm Fire Wall

AdAware Personal Personal SE

Spybot Search and Destroy
