    "Good if you plan on never un-installing it."

    August 28, 2009  |   By The_Bob_Dolemite

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    Above average protection w/ a decent firewall.

    Cons

    It simply will not un-install itself. There is an un install program available at BD's web page that works okay..But should such a tool be necessary? There is only one way to remove BD completely and that is to reformat your system.

    "it is the best security software i have ever installed"

    July 30, 2009  |   By sobhi200

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    evrything is good about bitdefender the firewall,scanner...and it even has a game mode and laptop mode and it doesnt slow down my pc.

    Cons

    the only thing not good is that u need to reboot your pc after installing.

    Summary

    excellent security worth evry peny u pay......and it doesnt slow down your pc ^^

    "Great product as long as nobody writes new viruses"

    July 11, 2009  |   By mmc1919

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    Easy to use graphical interface. Repurchase reminders are not intrusive (cough, symantec, cough).

    Cons

    Automatic virus update broke early on Windows XP system, then again when XP was reinstalled on same computer, then again on second computer with Windows Vista and only Microsoft Office on it.

    Summary

    Google "Bitdefender automatic update", and decide if you want to uninstall and reinstall over and over to get virus updates, which is the solution offered by the Bitdefender support staff (multiple times).

    "Do These Reviewers Even Use BitDefender?!"

    July 8, 2009  |   By shakethebabyass

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    Very fast scanning and doesnt slow my PC.
    Customer support chat is very fast. You do not have to wait 5 min for the person to respond. I was shocked.. comparing to symantec.

    Cons

    The antiphishing bar is .. needs better look.

    Summary

    I recommend to everyone to use. Surpasses Kaspersky and other leading vendors.

    You cant write a review based upon your experience within hours of installation. Let it get updated, scanned complete, and let the firewall learn your activity for a few days then write your review.

    Every program will be slower the first few days.. DUH!

    "This consumer's worst buy!"

    June 11, 2009  |   By bjamnjm

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    Adequately does what's advertised.

    Cons

    Horribl slowdowns, constant problems

    Summary

    This software is so much more trouble than Symantec. I went with this b/c Consumer Reports said it was a best buy. It wasn't really any cheaper than anything else just worse. I'd rather take my chances with a my firewall and a free internet security software.

    "didnt trust it"

    June 5, 2009  |   By master_mind413

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    I didn't find any at all honestly

    Cons

    seemed to light to me to be any good Ive never really heard any good about it from any one, computer slowed down after install ... it never warned me of any out going connections which is a first warning of crapware

    Summary

    i wouldn't recommend it to any one

    "More bad than good"

    May 26, 2009  |   By ricksquires

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    quick bootup

    Cons

    scheduler doesn't work so I receive annoying messages every six days to scan for malware. Gmaill works terrible with it. takes each page approx 30-45 seconds to load. bit defender claims they would fix with update but never did.

    Summary

    I would not purchase a bit defender product until they work out all the bugs. i can't even load it on one of my computers bc my gf uses it for work and Gmail runs so slow she can't get any work done. i had to uninstall it and will have to purchase ANOTHER software product to protect her computer bc of poor performace of bit defender.

    "Save yourself a major headache"

    April 20, 2009  |   By cris234

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    nothing - I hope my wasted money at least helped the economy - UGH

    Cons

    Constant problems, horrible tech support - a waste of money.

    Summary

    I have had nothing but problems with this product since I first tried to download it. I had to remove it and download it again and it has never worked easily. When I have a critical issue, and I click on FIX - it gets hung up and I have to reboot. It slows down my computer and the customer support is IMPOSSIBLE. You can't find it on the help page - there is not logical path to get to it. The help page is confusing and aggravating. If you finally figure out how to send an email by clicking on a link that brings up your personal email, you will get an email back saying that they will not respond to it. If you find the embedded email that works, you are lucky. They will respond in a day or two. I once found the link for live chat support but was never able to find it again. There are no phone numbers to call. I regret this purchase - BIG TIME. Save yourself a headache and get AVAST or another product for free. I will never buy this product again. The 2008 version was okay, but this is a nightmare.

    "Which is worse? The software or customer service?"

    April 3, 2009  |   By Fergdads

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    Nothing???

    Cons

    I have had problems for the 4 months since install. Chat support is worthless. You cannot connect to phone support in India or Phillipines or some 3rd world country. I cannot even connect to my home internet connection. Who said this program is ****?

    Summary

    My worst security software experience EVER! I would recommend this program to no one. Beware. Run for the hills. Keep in mind I never post anything on the web. I have had such a poor experience I had to share. I see that I am not the only one that hates it since I googled "bitdefender problems".

    "Finallly!!"

    March 29, 2009  |   By Adnow

    Version: BitDefender Total Security 2009

    Pros

    It is great, one of the best product on the market. Its easy to configure and it doesn't take much cpu!

    Cons

    Nothing, it works great!

    Summary

    I have test many internet security products and what i can tell is that there are two product you can trust and it is Bitdefender and Kaspersky.
