I have recently purchased a 7 year / 5 PC licnese from BullGuard even though the online reviews are not great but I trusted it as it runs the Bitdefender Engine and Outpost Firewall

I have been getting many issues lately such as the error I get upon every restart ( http://forum.bullguard.com/forum/15/Error-upon-each-restart-quotCu_94533.html )which I had to disable Gaming Mode for that to get resolved, but when I did disable Gaming Mode, everytime I restart, even though I am connected to WiFi, I cannot surf the net until I manually disconnect the connection and reconnect. Happened many times so it wasn't just that occasion.

Next, I go to my mom's place and attempt to install BullGuard Internet Security on her computer, it installed fine, then I try to install it on my step dad's laptop, when the servers went down and I couldn't even get BullGuard to start!!!!! Wow! this is appalling service from a security company to:

a) not give any prior warnings or notifications to customers
b) have their servers down?!?! this is not excusable by any means

In addition to the rude technical support staff, and how buggy this program is, I have sent payment@bullguard.com a refund request and I will never trust it again.

Read the many negative comments on the Wilder Security Forums regarding this outage >>> http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=2131318#post2131318

Rude technical staff:

I asked the online tech staff, what is your refund policy?

He says, email payment@bullgard.com

I say: so does that mean you have a refund policy??

He says: Did you read what I just said?


Well that was a bit vague! he just told me to email them he didn't say if they have a refund policy or not, secondly, that is a very rude way to talk to customers.

Another incident, I had uninstalled Firefox and installed the new version so I lost my browser plugin for BullGuard

I contact support and say how to get it back?

Support agent: Reinstall BullGuard

I say: Seriously? There must be a simpler way!

Support Agent: Failure to comply with my instructions will result in the failure of you solving the issue!?

Wow!! I am stunned to see such HR language being used with a customer!

Anyway I ended the chat, the next time I launch Firefox, the plugin was installed automatically! Just comes to show the guys on the support have 0 technical knowledge
