Getting started > Installing BullGuard

Overview

The BullGuard Internet Security application is provided via digital download from our website at http://www.bullguard.com/try/bullguard-internet-security.aspx or can be installed from the CDs/DVDs bought from BullGuard partners.


Installer

The installer downloaded from the BullGuard website has the advantage that you will always install the latest version available, and that the total update time at the first BullGuard startup is reduced.

 Downloading Bullguard

When downloading BullGuard, it is best to save it in a folder where you can easily find it, in case you need to reinstall it at a later date. Most common locations would be the My Documents, My Downloads folders or simply create a folder on your desktop and save it there.

During the installation, it is recommended to disable or uninstall all other security applications (mostly Antivirus or Firewall applications) as they may interfere in the BullGuard install process or may prevent the application from starting all its modules.

Avoid downloading BullGuard by using peer-to-peer applications or from locations you do not fully trust. Downloading BullGuard from other users’ computers can be hazardous if the computer you are downloading from has one of the virus types that infect executable (.exe) files.

All files downloaded from the download page or present on CDs/DVDs are digitally signed by BullGuard. To check the digital signature right click the BullGuard installer and choose the Properties option and go to the Digital Signatures tab from the Properties window.

Make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for running BullGuard properly.
