    "Bit Defender Total Security 2011 user!"

    August 15, 2011  |   By ZRMaster


    Anti Phishing
    File Vault
    Tune UP (Registry fix, Defragmentation, Duplicated file scanner, Junk File scan, Performance Monitor and advisor)
    Cookie Control
    Network monitoring
    Game Mode
    Laptop Mode
    Speed of scanning
    Vulnerability scan


    Complicated for some
    Start up and shutdown times slightly increases .


    I have a full paid license for Bit Defender TS 2011 and i am extremely satisfied with it! Using it 2 months. I had a couple of free antivirus programs installed on my computer before this. Thing is that, when you install this after Avira , Avast, AVG ..... you see how much depth is in this Total Security , how much infections did free versions missed or didnt detected. It scans your computer before installing itself so the risk of self infection doesn't exist.
    Installation is fast and simple.
    Every function works great for 2 months now, no problems. Only thing i noticed is startup and shutdown time is grater for 5 sec.
    Also has a great e-mail scan engine for spam and junk.
    Tune UP function has a wide range of scanners and cleaners and this function really works great.. especially the registry cleaner and defragmentation.
    This version of Bit Defender is for advanced/experienced users , if u are used to free av protections then you have to learn this program (i had to learn it and getting used to.)
    I am user of 2011 total security and i know this review is for 2012 but i followed Bit Defender's progress for some years and i studied it well before buying a license, and believe me every new version is better then previous one.
    Or go to (The company AV-TEST GmbH is a worldwide operating and leading service provider for IT security testing and consultancy services) and see which antivirus software has a best results....
    Hope this review helps...

    all points you said about the other antivirus can be put the other way around.the only thing bitdefender paid version is better than avira and avg,its the the on-access scanner,the on-demand scanner on avg and antivir is as complete as the paid version.
