"THE BEST ANTIVIRUS OUT THERE"

November 25, 2006  |  By TechGod

 |  Version: BitDefender Antivirus 10

Pros

Easy to configure, easy to understand!! Catches malware and webviruses IN REAL TIME... unlike Norton's joke of a AV product. I can't wait until version 11.

Cons

None. Great AV app!!

"Does not detect viruses--auto scans do not work!!"

November 21, 2006  |  By kenzen2

 |  Version: BitDefender Antivirus 10

Pros

None--Very disappointing!!

Cons

I found that free Avast! and AntiVir identified and deleted 2 viruses that Bitdefender missed. The auto scan has not worked since I bought Bitdefender v10!! The support people sent fixes that did not solve the problems. They keep saying "we are aware of the glitch and we are working on it." I've deleted Bitdefender and I am using AntiVir (free version) now.

"BitDefender is one of the better anti-virus programs on the market today."

November 15, 2006  |  By heypete1

 |  Version: BitDefender Antivirus 10

Pros

Very thorough scanning, has many different settings for scans (from a quick, superficial scan to a thorough, deep, slower scan), definitions are frequently updated on an hourly basis (much better response time to new threats than many other antivirus vendors, a simple-yet-powerful interface, and non-obtrusive on-access scanning. Low memory and disk footprint. Detects and removes more bad stuff than AVG Professional (AVG would repeatedly detect an item, but couldn't remove it -- BitDefender detected and removed it immediately and it hasn't shown up again).

Cons

Deeper scans require a substantial amount of time (about 20 minutes to scan 60GB of files) and are better run at scheduled times at night. Not sure about the effectiveness of the antispyware module, but I generally use other antispyware software so I'm not terribly concerned.

"Very good so far"

October 21, 2006  |  By jimmyfingers13

 |  Version: BitDefender Antivirus 10

Pros

Quicker scans than BD9 and several more options too. Has even more functionality settings than previously an dI can now do away with separate anti-spyware software! Just using the free 30 day trial at moment but will definately be paying for a full version which is still cheaper than many of it's rivals. I've tried maybe ten other anit-virus programs and this is by far the best! Don't take my word for it just download the trial and find out for yourself - you won't be disappointed!

Cons

None

October 18, 2006  |  By Dewtig

 |  Version: BitDefender Antivirus 10

Pros

This product will keep your computer safe from all threats with extrenely frequent updates that protect you against the very recent threat, a strong powerful virus shield that scans all activity on your computer, revolutionary emulation technology that is twice as good as normal heuristics and can detect new, unknown, and encrypted viruses. Added is an antispyware protection.To top it off, it has a rootkit scanning option. Simply, this product is like no other for protecting your system from everything except hackers.

Cons

The scans are sluggish, but thorough.
