I got 2 keys from the internet security, but its a pain in the ass setting up the firewall going from total security to internet security or vice versa.

Tbh I don't bother with 3rd party firewalls, my router has a firewall and windows has one, that's plenty for me

I did find another promo link for Total Security that looked promising, but it needed a german VPN/Proxy, soon as I loaded the link via a german proxy it told me the promo had expired

I`ll keep my eyes open for another one, they seem to come along quite regularly and if you have 172 days left atm it's almost guaranteed there will be another one by the time it expires

This is where I normally find them

Do you know what the basic difference is between unregistered and registered usage of DVDFab? Looks like you use it too, and sorry if this is OT.

If you were asking me, I don't use it and honestly know little about it. I simply posted links to software, from the giveawayradar site TK linked to, that I thought might interest people.

Ah, thought you were using it too I've got a version not needing a key atm, so I was wondering if it would do anything differently from the registered version.

haha, thanks very true - wish there were a few more for ESET NOD32 too, although I'm good for the next year for that, somehow without me applying for a key or a giveaway, I got a foreign email from them with a username / password, stuck it in to NOD32 and it activated for 12 months lol

I just picked up ZDSoft screen recorder 8 for free off of the Windowsdeal site which is a great deal because I was going to use that software to record game play footage.

In my opinion NOD32 is terrible, has one of the worst anti malware signatures. I once lost my Steam account using it way back in 2007. Bitdefender didnt work on Windows 7 RTM coming from Vista 64bit for a while so i went to Nod32. Got my Steam account back through steam support and re-installed Bitdefender as soon as it became available.

Once that happened i went paranoid on security and researched the crap out of it at the time setting up a test laptop and purposefully put malware on it. Nod 32 failed to pick up some traces and so did many other anti virus applications. Zonealarm was another which was rated as good at the time, nothing but a POS.

My top 3 were Bitdefender, Kaspersky and the new Reskinned Norton along with Malwarebytes that found everthing on the test laptop. I even set up a proxy server in my garage at the time although this was probably over the top lol.

Nod32 happily lets Malware through as someone also posted over at Ocuk years ago.

I would never use it tbh, i dont rate it whatsoever. I like to go everywhere and anywhere on the web, there are no places that i do not go and for this Nod32 is a fail.



If you are careful when browsing you dont actually need to use anything if you visit legitimate sites apart from a cookie cleaner (adware/spyware), which ccleaner is good enough to use.

I had the opposite experience, Kaspersky turned my machine into a lag job, killed my net connection unless I disabled 80% of the modules

Norton I wouldn't touch with a 50ft pole, worked in a repair shop a few years back and the sheer amount of machines that came in with all different versions of Norton installed and fully updated, completely infected to the eyeballs - also caused endless connectivity issues and bogged the machines down to a crawl - also a nightmare to remove without the separate norton removal tools

BitDefender I haven't had much experience with, read good things about it and would be my 2nd choice - but NOD32 keeps it's head down, blocks bad guys from sites and downloads before they reach my machine and I don't really notice it other than a little update notification a few times a day

I run Malwarebytes full scan every month or two to keep a check on things, and my machine generally comes back clean

I have ghostery installed for 3rd party cookie blocks, and 'Self-Destruct Cookies" addon installed for sites I don't regularly visit or log into - combined, Ive not had any issues for years

I guess each to their own, I know once something gets passed your AV and causes you issues, it makes you think twice about using it again, but so far so good, and I've been running it for a long time

The place I used to work at I had to find AV to replace the one that we were using at the time Sophos and we tried Kaspersky and it caused alot of problems such as causing lockups on 64bit computers not a good experience at all. We are using F-secure and it seems to the job very well, however there are some minor issues like it deleting files that are false positives and you have to either add the file to the exempt list or make it read only and one of the features which is banking protection activating at weird times.
