I did not see many promotional offers of BullGuard like Kaspersky and Avira. BTW, this is first time, if I remember, that I can see a full one year offer of BullGuard Internet Security 8.5 will be open for everybody. It is sure, I will not miss this chance to get a world class Internet security software free of cost. I advise you to Grab It, whatever, you need it or not, Grab It. You may need it later.
