"Bullguard Lite" virus protection- is it any good?

I have KaZaa Lite. It came bundled with BullGuard Lite virus protection. When KaZaa Lite is opened, Bullguard always updates its files and checks the "shared" folder for viruses. Does anyone know if BullGuard Lite is dependable? Should I always do a full scan with my regular antivirus software prior to opening any new files in the "shared" folder?

- - - Bullguard only scans files shared through the P2P program, not anything else. It never seems to give any messages that it has done anything, where something like Norton Antivirus says when it finds something, and even tells you want it is. If you want to test antivirus software, there are lists on the K-L forum boards of files and the viruses/trojans they are infected with.
