    "The Very best"

    October 18, 2006  |   By Dewtig

    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.

    Loved your review; It seems you know more than the average person about this sort of thing... I have had a problem where my computer has been hacked into: I was using Zone Alarm Security Suite when it happened; ZA would not keep out the Trojans, Key Loggers, And Root Kit I found earlier this month. I have to completely reinstall windows and lose all of my work due to this problem. Now I am using three seperate programs, each specializing in one of the following fields: AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, and FireWall capabilities. These programs are: BitDefender AntiVirus Plus V10, Webroot SpySweeper, and Agnitum's Outpost Firewall.

    I believe Agnitum's Outpost Firewall has disabled many of BitDefender's processes (like it's firewall and other capabilities) -- do you think BitDefender's firewall is good enough to run on it's own without Agnitum's OutPost Firewall..? Or do you think I should forget all the programs mentioned above and move on to a program better suited for hackers since, my hackers, is actually someone who's been targeting me for some time now due to mutual accquaintances (so there's a possibility i might be hacked again)....

    I can see you know you're stuff and any type of response would be GREATLY appreciated - I've been going through a really tough time and I've lost a lot of work on my computer due to these problems - Any advice would come along with much of my gratitude.

    Looking forward to your response,
