Re: How is TELUS Security Services? Well you know, if the product is decent, I wouldn't mind using it. I've used Shaw Secure before, and it was great.
But the fact is, Shaw used/uses good providers. They initially had F-Secure (when I tried it), and I hear now they've moved to McAfee.
Telus Security Services initially claimed (a little bit less than a year ago) that it uses Trend Micro. However, after updating the software to make it "Windows 8 compatible", all references to Trend Micro are gone from the site. If they use a well known provider (McAfee, Norton, F-Secure, Trend Micro) without constantly changing it, I would give it a shot. The Telus Security page should also be more clear on what company's technology they utilize to make the feature (anti virus, etc) available.
Just linking to RadialPoint's website is not enough.
My parents had Shaw Secure. After Shaw switched to McAfee it became a bloated slow disaster. Not to mention that it was malware itself as it wouldn't allow anyone to uninstall the Site Advisor module since it communicated your surfing habits back to McAfee. It pretended to uninstall but on reboot it was still there. Total mess.
Radialpoint I don't trust. The software is too incomplete. On occasion it will interfere with your email connection at random unless they've fixed that glaring bug that's been there for the last few versions.
I used McAfee Total Protection until November of last year.
This will help you remove McAfee completely. I made sure to run it every time I uninstalled the software.
