    "Constant problems"

    July 9, 2011  |   By tds7

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    Used to be a very good Security Program.

    Cons

    Hogs CPU usage and keeps programs from running.

    "So far, so good"

    July 1, 2011  |   By Randyboy99

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    Haven't owned it long enough to be honest about anything good yet.

    Cons

    Same with the cons. Haven't yet owned it long enough to list a lot of bad stuff. Stay tuned!

    Summary

    At first I had a few hiccups, but after a few minor tweaks it seems to have settled down. My tray icon had a habit of hiding itself , but also seems to have settled down. I'm very finnicky with my security software, so any more bad things with this program and it will find itself uninstalled in a minute. Stay tuned!

    "are they in league with iobit"

    June 17, 2011  |   By TheArfen

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    easy to use firewall.

    Cons

    takes to long to install.

    Summary

    Everything was going good apart from the odd missed virus,
    Now after a recent update it has blocked malwarebytes from performing updates,
    the only way to update malwarebytes now is to turn off the anti virus http scans,
    even adding it to the ignore list doe's not work.
    Bitdefender has now become a pest, so i am replacing it with something else on all 11 of my computers.

    "An unbelievable piece of S**T -- DIE DIE DIE DIE"

    June 14, 2011  |   By jkoerner

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    ??? Pros ??? is this a joke?

    Cons

    ZERO SUPPORT - I have sent over 20 requests for tech support - never got any response at all.
    Too many problems to list here. Crashes, bugs, CPU hog, No user control over handling malware.
    the "Help" system is a total JOKE!! NOTHING IN IT !!!

    Summary

    How can this piece of CR*P be receiving editors choice awards from places like Maximum PC? They should be included in a class action lawsuit against BitDefender for stealing millions of $$ from customers following their advice. Please, is there a lawyer reading this? We really need a class action to destroy this incompetent, thieving idiot company.

    "Effective but SLOW"

    March 4, 2011  |   By Wales12

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    The automated updates and reasonable price. Stays out of your face not like other software such as Norton.

    Cons

    Very problematic installation particularly if you want to manage a little network IE: two desktops and a wireless laptop. I gave up on the the laptop and installed another freeware security software on it.

    Summary

    I'm moving on! life is too short to baby sit this software. The technical support is terrible and not worth the time. I have same problems other reviewer's experienced ( slow deep scans (2 or more hours), Locked up system during scans etc.

    "Great product - HORRIBLE & SLOW Support"

    January 27, 2011  |   By CopSee

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    Very effective product for keeping the computer virus, malware, and spam free! Does exactly what it is supposed to when it is working...

    Cons

    Since installing 2011 product, it crashed at least 4 times EVERY DAY. These crashes seem to involve their automatic updates AND Windows 7 (which they deny). No immediate phone support available for this issue 24-48 hr response time each call.

    Summary

    Great product that works well when it is working. Their customer service phone line is unhelpful and has a 24-48 hour turn around time for a return email. Always needs to go to Level 2 support or higher, each time you need to move up it is another 24-48 hours for assistance.

    Would give MUCH higher reviews if they did something to resolve their POOR CUSTOMER SUPPORT.

    "One of best Security suites with worst support"

    January 17, 2011  |   By chinnavignesh

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    BitDefender features a personalized user interface, excellent parental controls and rock solid antivirus and security features.Great detection rates

    Cons

    The new search results scanner, Search Adviser, isn't as strong as some of the competition. Updates are very slowly downloaded even with fast connection.

    Summary

    This internet security suites product is streamlined, solid and powerful. As a bonus, it's very reasonably priced. BitDefender Internet Security has proven to be one of the best internet security suites year after year. The unique combination of features and impressive utility make it one of the most versatile and effective security solutions. For most users, it should provide more than enough security while maintaining complete usability. Overall, BitDefender Internet Security suite is a perfect solution that will keep your computer clean and secure without significantly sacrificing performance.

    "yikes! I'm sure sorry I bought this at Target"

    January 3, 2011  |   By Pumedadume

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    not too bad to uninstall but haven't scanned my system yet to see how intrusive it was

    Cons

    very long install; very long update; the box said 2011 version, the disk said 2011 version but the disk would only install the 2010 version which was incompatible with the 2011 serial number that was printed on the disk sleeve. otherissuesbutranoutof

    Summary

    My DefenderPro 5in1 license expired and I went to Target to get a replacement but I saw this one, which was cheaper and seemed to do the same things. I knew nothing about Bitdefender at the time. Talk about learning the hard way. Next time I'll put some time into researching and reading reviews instead of being impulsive and/or sticking with what I was happy with. Live and Learn.

    "Great, easy to use."

    December 1, 2010  |   By David Luckman

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    Easy to use, doesn't seize or take over your computer, and updates daily.

    Cons

    Had a problem with making a back-up of my computer. Probably because I should have used a Thumb Drive instead of DVD's.

    Summary

    I bought Bit Defender maimly because my Brother uses it. Then I was impressed at the ease of use, and that it came with a two year and 3 computer license. I was even able to download the newest version without any add'l cost. I had Norton's, but it was always taking up too much space and trying to get in the way. I couldn't even download email without Norton's getting in the way.

    "Always running into some problem"

    October 24, 2010  |   By Nikilet

    Version: BitDefender Internet Security 2011

    Pros

    I think it could be a good program with some changes.

    Cons

    I believe they release program updates without enough testing and then things go drastically wrong and there's not adequate customer support in place.

    Summary

    I had BitDefender Internet Security for 3 years and have to say I went through much anxiety with this program. I had over a year left on my contract when I finally quit threatening, went ahead with uninstalling and going with something different. I believe the main problem is releasing product updates before they are tested and ready -- using their paying customers for beta testing -- and then not being able to handle the customer support needs.
