    This is a horrible anti-virus. Avoid it at all costs, unless you want to put your computer(s) at risk of infections. The detection rates are very poor and it does not remove many of the common viruses that other applications, both pay and free, will remove.

    Some of the best are Avast, Avira's AntiVir, NOD32 and Kaspersky to name a few.

    I thought I mentioned , that this is a deal for Free ...does not cost you any money , if you do not need it ,,,,,just skip it ....and this is a not a bad deal for someone looking for an anti virus .......there are a bunch of items / products / freebies ...which are total junk .....no one is commenting on the quality of them ....are we?
    Was skeptical about posting it ...but thought ..its a FREEBIE ..what bad can it do .....but I guess I AM WRONG .....

      Well why get a low quality freebie of a pay product (Computer Associates AntiVirus), when there are other freebies out there that can do better (stated in my prior comment)?

      I use Mcafee which is rated bad according to your evaluation website ....
      I never had any issues

      personally I don't like NORTON ....but again ..some people I know are comfortable with it ...,...its how it works ....these softwares are pretty good at cleaning / detecting / stopping viruses , + they got pretty good implementation teams in case of a virus-on-the-loose ...

      well for buying this item , you usually have to PAY MONEY -- OR MAYBE FILL OUT REBATES ....

      SO BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL PRICE OF THE ITEM ...IS ABOVE FREE ....SO GETTING THIS ITEM AT A ZERO PRICE MAKES IT A DEAL

      THIS IS A DEAL WEBSITE .......

      McAfee and Norton actually used to be good. But over time they both became bloated and no longer have acceptable detection ratios. One place I worked had one AV per partition. It was Norton, McAfee, Windows OneCare and Avast. I stayed after hours and ran tests and the results were (best to worst): Avast, Windows OneCare, McAfee, Norton. My boss now sells Avast instead of Norton because of those results. Smile

      Again dude, relax. Don't take things so personally.

    It's a d*** freebie .....whats it costing you ....not even one cent ....no gas .....probably a few clicks ......

    + there is no mention of CA anti virus ...they did not really rate it bad

    anyways ....

    they mentioned

    If you plan to buy an Anti-Virus, please visit the vendor's site and evaluate their software by downloading a trial version, as there are also many other features (e.g. firewall, HIPS, behaviorblocker, etc.) and important things (e.g. price, graphical user interface, compatibility, etc.) for an Anti-Virus that you should evaluate by yourself.

    Even if quite important, the data provided in the test reports on this site are just some aspects that you should consider when buying Anti-Virus software.

      I work in the field and I speak from hands on experience. No, there's not a single av solution that will detect everything (we can dream, can't we?) but why settle for sub-par detection rates? You can get freeware that does better and is lightweight (Avira, Avast) or pay for one (NOD32, Kaspersky). Another bad thing is false positives, which CA has many of and is another bad thing about them.

      orangearrows, don't take things so personally. Smile

      TARUN ...I WORK IN THE FIELD TOO..

      nothing personal ...but tired of getting negative votes because of personal preferences of people

      this is a deal website

      if there is a priced items ...the price of that item drops .....becomes cheap ...it makes it a deal ...we post it here

      Whether you want it or not , it's you call , but it does not make the deal bad .....again ....about the false positives and about the quality of them item , we can debate on it ...forever ....don't want to start it ....

      CA antivirus is a well known brand ....avaialble nationwide ...this deal is download able - no gas spent , no CC required....and why this is a deal ...because for buying this item otherwise .....we pay money or fill rebates ( to get it free) .....this is better than that

      + about which ANTI VIRUS is the best ...there will always be an ongoing debate.....

      Quality is a high part of a deal too. A product of poor quality does not make a good deal, free or not. Wink

      It does ....quality of an item ..makes it a better deal ....this is free of cost ....+ it's a well known brand .....it's reached a certain level of business by being good + yeah good marketing too ...I do understand that their are softwares which are bloated ...but ......that you can judge ...on your opinion ..someone else might not think so .....I don;t get it ...

      how about all the freebies on this website ?

      Anyways ..I really don't want to get into this type of a discussion ......

      I think by this time you know that negative votes harm a deal ....and the poster , you figured that out , right ? And for an item which is totally free , it beats me .....

      if you don't need it ..just delete the email which they send you ..or maybe just don't look at this deal .....right ?

    This is what seems to be happening, isn't it?

    Ca Antivirus - bad product? yes
    Free Ca Antivirus - bad deal? no

    Don't like it - don't get it... Voting up
