I currently have 'PC GUARD' (which is NTL/Virgin Media free Protection package) as my anti-virus & spyware protection.
Does anybody else have the same package and do you know if it is any good as i dont really know much about Anti-virus & spyware????

Also when i go into my 'critical services' section it tells me my spyware is 'Lite' rather than saying 'On'. does this mean my spyware isnt working?

any help is much appreciated, thank you

As I don't have this I can't tell you exactly. But since you states that it's a free protection package, you are not getting full Spyware coverage *indicated by LITE status* as compared to being ON.

I am also assuming that since PC Guard free to Virgin Broadband customers, you are also one of those?

If you are looking for a great free tool, you have one.
