Top Customer Reviews
eTrust EZ Armor was free, actually, after rebates, so I gave it a try. I couldn't be happier.
First of all, it's a MUCH smaller program to install and run. Installation was quick and smooth. I use the EZ Firewall instead of the one that comes with XP. No problems whatsoever.
The anti-virus software works. No viruses. Updates are timed to your preference. I do them every day, since they takes just a minute or two using dial up, seconds with DSL.
Everything about this software is so much better than Norton's, you will wonder why you didn't switch sooner.
I was totally amazed at how good this software is. It is fast, effective easy to configure and very versatile.
It's fast because it's lean. It is a fraction of the size of the competitors and uses less memory and system resources. It's action is transparent to the user and most of the time unless you have a legitimate problem you won't even know it's there and working.
The firewall is as or more effective than any on the market. Plu sit's action is quick and unobtrusive. It does not slow the system down any noticeable amount.
The virus control is simple to use, and keeps itself up to date with no user involvement. It screens e-mail and external threats automatically and effectively.
The pop-up blocker works flawlessly and the cookie control is very customizable where you can block site by site to any level you choose.
I highly recommend this package to any Windows computer user whether thay may be a casual home user or a professional.
CA did an excellent job on this package. This is all I care to use on any of my corporate Windows machines. The price is also excellent so there is no excuse not to leave yourself unprotected.
The firewall works quite nicely even though you have to give it a few days to configure your settings and see what you want and don't want accessing the computer and internet. But the problem went away. It seems to work quite well.
Do this to protect your computer. You need at least 512 MB Ram for all the usage but do this to protect from 99% Spyware Adware Viruses Hackers etc out there. Get eTrust Armor for antivirus and firewall, let it update automatically twice a day morning and night, than get Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D and Spyware Blaster for immunity against spywares etc before they hit your cpu. Find a good registry cleaner and get avant browser if you want, helps stop pop ups which leads to sites that distributes spywares or viruses. Boom. Its been 2 months, only spyware I got are the usual ones that are ALWAYS on my computer. Can't get them out of registry unless I really go into there, I'm not too great on in depth computer stuff so nothing I can do here.
Well, get this software, its scanning is pretty fast. Its overall pretty good. I SUPPOSE. Nice day to all.
