"decent interface, fine protection"

June 14, 2010  |  By wabliska

 |  Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2010

Pros

Scans are fairly fast, user interface is simple. Doesn't hog resources. Price is reasonable.

Cons

Automatic updates are not reliable, tho manual updates are fine. Games can be added to games list manually so that BD goes into game mode automatically, but the updates will frequently erase the list, forcing you to re-enter those not included.

Summary

Reliable testing by PC Mag, and others, put it near the top of the list for protection and scanning, but its shortcomings, as mentioned in the 'Cons', will irritate more experienced users. For those who desire a reasonably priced product and are not hard core gamers, it'll do fine.

"Customer support available but not helpful"

May 27, 2010  |  By jrosio

 |  Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2010

Pros

It used to be easy to use until a few weeks ago (March 2010). A phone number to Bit Defender brings the caller to hear 4 rings and then a human voice (wow! ) but -- the voices have not led to help.

Cons

Recently there was a false-positve virus thing sent out with this BitDefender and that is when all the trouble started. They renewed my membership for a year, free, but I am going to uninstall.

Summary

It quits repeatedly for no known reason. Clicking "fix this problem" does not fix problems. It caused a software conflict which has not been resolved even after an uninstall and half a dozen calls.

"Great suite, but will freeze a system REPEATEDLY."

May 09, 2010  |  By BigDaddyPreach

 |  Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2010

Pros

Ease of use, protection level, intuitive. Couldn't really ask for a lot more.

Cons

Unfortunately, it gives you more. Is a system hog, and I mean a system HOG. Has repeatedly froze my laptop, leaving me with no option other than crashing it out with the power button.

Summary

It's a great at what it does, but it's just not worth it if it's going to to cripple your system.

"Brought based on CNet review. My mistake"

February 16, 2010  |  By ddestefani

 |  Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2010

Pros

Does not appear to slow the PC down

Cons

Constantly closing down with no real reason. Send it forward with an email address but never hear from anyone. Somedays shuts down 2 or 3 tijmes while on line. Get the sorry message but that's it for level of service

Summary

Brought this based on CNET review rating it as #1. I wonder if they tested it in Windows 7? As stated above it crashes and shuts down a lot. Have two identically laptops, both running windows 7 but many times my other laptop won't open in Windows 32 bit internet explorer. You have to turn of the antivirus and then you can get in Internet Exploreer and then go and turn the anit-virus back on. Help does really doesn help and their FAQ is real hard to figure out

"Best Security Solution"

February 09, 2010  |  By selbs101

 |  Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2010

Pros

Really doesn't slow down my computer, detects all viruses and is unobtrusive. Good at detecting viruses as soon as I unwittingly download them.

Cons

Scanning is quite slow.

Summary

I've had many different internet security programmes, I chose this one because at the time it was decide to be the best in a certain tests. I definitely recommend it and it's amazing value for money.

"Good price, Bad choice"

February 01, 2010  |  By sgtjoebear

 |  Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2010

Pros

none anymore

Cons

No email support! you must select live chat but if bit defender is acting up sometimes you can't select it. Constant problems updating, will not detect IP Hijackers or lots of malware. please see important info below!!!

Summary

I started using bit defender about 4 years ago it was great! It had excellent protection, customer service and updated the virus list every hour. I thought I had a winner. then a year or so ago it started! I started getting errors the main error was bitdefender could not update. So, I went to customer service they said uninstall reinstall so i did. then that did not work etc etc etc i even downloaded their tool to find problems! they had no clue! i just decided to read the report the tool spit out and there it was in big letters the update address had changed and bit defender had not bothered to notify me, or included it in an update NICE! so here i am today with same problems every now and then i have to go in the root files and change file names to get it to work. MAJOR BUG!!! also I got 4 yes 4!!! IP hijackers! I had to download a awesome free program called Malwarebites I recommend everyone use it once in a while. also like the above reviews bit defender for some reason has stopped answering email tech support. so if you need support it is the phone yeah right or live chat which if you on the go is a pain. Bit Defender is totally gone to **** and in 17 days when my lic expires I am switching to Kaspersky or AVG!!! hope this helps anyone. i give it one star because i have to rate it something
