I run with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and use Firefox as my browser. I recently downloaded in installed a 60 day free trial of BullGuard antivirus. I am not sure if they are connected but Firefox has started to stop responding and the screen freezes up.
Yes I did uninstall MSE before I installed this free trial antivirus.
Has anyone else had similar problems? Could it be a conflict between Firefox and BullGuard?
I would welcome your comments before I uninstall Bullguard and possibly download free Avast.
I wouldn't use Revo to uninstall a security program. You might end up with more problems. Follow the instructions here from Bleeping Computers. Download from the author's link and it has instructions. I would then reboot and run Ccleaner and its registry cleaner.
Avast free is excellent but watch while installing to untick Google toolbar and any other "unsuitables" and you'll be fine.
From Vista up the Windows firewall is okay. You shouldn't need a third party one. Remember to register with free Avast and occasionally check for program updates. Definitions update automatically though.
Good to know you let Bullguard's own uninstaller to run within Revo. Usually you need to ignore the uninstaller to remove stubborn programs and Revo will remove. However I've been bitten twice with Revo, once removing a security program and once removing a Microsoft program. Left with damaged registry and not able to re-install.
