I haven't used it, but I generally have a dim view of security software provided by ISPs (after an excruciating experience with AT&T's bad excuse for a security suite.)

However, it looks like some people like it. At least one reviewer had serious computer slow-downs and crashes after installing it, though.

The suite is from CA, and includes software that would otherwise cost you around $50. SO the underlying technology seems to be sound.

Hmmm, it looks like I've been no help at all in actually deciding! But at least I got to take up some space and learn a bit about a new security suite.

When I signed onto RR a couple of years ago, I got offers like that. It's a personal choice. If you are absolutely new to computers, I suppose it's a good deal because you should have access to support in the event you might have problems with the software. But for me, I'm perfectly happy (and secure) using free the applications I've used for years; antivirus, firewall, etc. And I don't have to worry about any yearly subscriptions running out.

Thanks again....I'm presently using Zone Alarm and AVG anti-virus
It's working fine....I thought maybe CA would be faster, but like you
I'll stick with what I have.....I also used Spybot Search & Destroy and
Spyware Blaster.
