Not sure about this anti-malware download, or site, says Error 404 or Firefox 'Not to be trusted. Help ?

 First time comment, not too sure of this site. Impressed by articles as I will be getting IPv6 in 10 days. But tried to download the ant-malware and then the URL came up 'Error 404' on Google, so tried Firefox and came up 'this site cannot be trusted. Also whilst anti-malware was downloading I saw the URL change to 'Cloud'. Why ? I don't want cloud. Then the confirmation emails on my mobile got frozen twice, am I really safe on here ? Thanks.

    Hi Jacqui,

    Sorry to here you are having trouble with a link, what page are you trying to open? I will make sure we get it working.

    For a good anti malware product I recommend our Sophos Home Premium product. At the moment we are beta testing it so it is available free for a year. You can register here

    It has some of our most advanced nextgen technology including anti ransomware which stopped attacks like WanaCry and Petya automatically.

    Let me know if you have any trouble with it.

    Yep I came back, read up about this Sophos Home on many links, top rated free download anti-virus, malware, everything. Got on one PC now so will have a tinker with it. It attacks everything, which is great. Ahg missed your message re: Sophos Home Premium, I couldn't wait to download it. 

    Thanks for taking the time to reply, much appreciated.

    Downloaded one to try 2 days ago, absolute nightmare !!!! Whilst installing it attacked my firewall and DNS was leaking out of network area. BT onto me twice saying I must have been using a VPN which is mentioned in the IP Act. So happy I'm changing provider. The other thing is that I cannot uninstall it from control panel, think it's brought some bugs with it, not on this PC, but my laptop. Then I was trying to put all the settings back in place in the Firewall that were damaged, BT another message, I should not be using Advanced settings, that's for the ISP or an expert. Will definitely consider the Home Premium, not  sure many anti-viruses have managed to catch WanaCry.
