Hello

I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion on whether Bullguard Internet
Security Suite is good or not. I like the idea of an all-in-one
product that has anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall, spam filter &
online backup.

Appreciate any comments. Thanks

Never heard of it, and I strongly disagree with the all in one solution.
Each area is a specialty, that requires it's own skill set to do well.
I haven't seen a company that ranks at the top, in all of those areas.

I think you are much better off to research which company or freeware
does the best, for each of the applications.  Keep in mind, that it
will change over time.  I used to recommend avg, but due to it's recent
bloat, and problems with false positives, I'm now recommending avast,
for on access antivirus scanning.  For spyware, use multiple scanners.
For spam, let gmail filter your incoming email.  For backup, (online
is too slow), use a removable or external hd, with a fireproof safe.

Can't be too sure but I think its an OEM of BitDefender.

Apparently it is a rebadged version of BitDefender and as such should
be considered a reasonable suite
