  • Summary: I've been using bitdender for a few years now I also got the plus version for 3 pc's this year and that works just fine also. I don't see why people have a problem with it.
  • Pros: Easy to install, doesn't slow my computers down, easy to use.

  • Summary: Hey, everybody needs and AV program, and IMHO; the one with the lowest resource usage should win. In my experience, this is it.
  • Pros: Cheap (I got it for 9.95 for two year license), has a small footprint. Has a lot of options and features (like Safeplay and the wallet).
  • Cons: May slow down your internet at first, takes some decent google-fu to find a good guide to optimize for your particular needs and system.

Why all the guff..

David Y., Newegg
1 June 2014
  • Summary: didn't buy here, instead directly from Bit Defender.
  • Pros: Works. Was cheap. don't see why people have so many issues with this. I will say I am running it on WIN 8 but no big works great.
  • Cons: adds some lag but only for like 30 seconds on startup. but no reason to call it a bad product

Can't install it

Graham N., Newegg
22 May 2014
  • Summary: No refund from Newegg because it is software, no refund from Bitdefender because they didn't sell it.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: It won't install, let alone run, with MalwareBytes Pro installed but disabled, unlike any other anti-virus I've ever tried. Instead, the install actually crashes while downloading. Bitdefender's support didn't even diagnose the crashes before they blamed MalwareBytes, and I'm not giving up MalwareBytes.

Eye Blistering Bloatware

Leo H., Newegg
1 May 2014
  • Summary: Asks the install user for all the information about them. I would only enter my name, email. It felt like fighting malware just to get to finish install.
  • Pros: Awed at the fireworks installation of colors and promises.
  • Cons: Instead of being sudle and just give user an icon notification of a present problem, this value issue of Bitdefender is like an old digital Western like carpetbagger with billboard windows selling everything but legs for your PC to go to the bathroom.

Acts like beta software, useless tech support.

Michael R., Newegg
30 April 2014
  • Summary: In my 32 years in IT I've never seen a beta of any software with this many problems, much less something being sold to the public as a solution. When I clean an old machine without antivirus or sell a new machine, I want to install an antivirus solution and get it back to the customer, not spend several hours configuring it to work with whatever programs might fight it and pray that I got them all.
  • Pros: Inexpensive when on sale every couple weeks. They have a great uninstall tool even though it takes forever to complete. Always remember to use an antivirus' uninstall tool before installing a new antivirus solution.
  • Cons: I purchased several licenses and initial testing went well with some speed bumps, such as Ccleaner locking up the machine when set for secure deletion of temp files. Just add Ccleaner to the exceptions list in bitdefender and it will work fine.

  • Summary: I bought it after a long internet browsing and this is what I finnaly decided to buy. It`s a Romanian product that go beyond any of my expectations.
  • Pros: Intelligent ways to identify all is abnormal in my system, fast, keeping a low profile for not making me scared because of any file or cookies used by some internet sites, not bothering the user, has an autopilot function, periodic/ hourly uptating itself, has a safe banking environment, good file shredder, has a vault, a safe wallet and basic tune-up facilities for the operating system. I found it a very good antivirus and firewall. It is worthet to buy.
  • Cons: Not identified yet.....Everything`s really working smooth.

Bitdefender Total Security 2014

Mario R., Newegg
23 March 2014
  • Summary: I use this product on a large scale (clients and personal) for few years now, love the cloud version for the easy control.
  • Pros: I do like this product core idea of a complete package that can do it all, nice control center and a very effective av.
  • Cons: Just lately after an update (7~14 days ago) the firewall is acting very strange on all version (Cloud and local) it started to block port 80 or internet access for no reason, had to disable the firewall and use windows own for now just to restore internet connection.
