CA Internet Security Suite 2007 - free offering to RoadRunner customers

review from ClifNotes, Nov 2007, permalink Security Tools

 

Sometime earlier this year, our cable internet service at Adelphia was bought out and taken over by RoadRunner. This change-over has not always meant smooth sailing for us. We've had to deal with service outages, changing our email addresses, and billing issues.

 

Other than that, I can't complain too much. Most of the time it works and even though I pay too much, I'm happy to have high speed internet. I'd be really sad if I had to switch back to dial-up.

 

When we first started using the RR service, my wife and I tried out their free offer of EZ Armor security suite. Neither of us liked it much and it caused my wife's PC all kinds of problems. Now they've come out with another offering. The CA Internet Security Suite 2007 is published by the same folks that gave us the EZ Armor system. Has it improved? I had to find out.

 

The download and install went off without problems. The suite is very nice looking and has complete coverage of your basic home security needs. It offers Anti-virus, Ant-Spyware, Anti-Spam and a Firewall.

 

After I installed it and went through the settings that I wanted, I noticed that it now took twice as long to boot my PC. Arrrrrrgh!

 

Shortly after I discovered that, I got the first Blue Screen of Death that I've ever gotten on this PC. I've had this PC for over a year and have never had software misbehave so badly. More BSODs followed occasionally of the next two days. I'd had enough and I uninstalled it.

 

I cannot recommend this suite, but I'm sure there are folks out there who love this suite and have no problems. All I can say is that I wish them the best of luck.

 

Thanks to RichK at CHC for reminding me about this suite.
