This review was a little hard for me to write, not because I have any qualms with BitDefender's performance - But because once you have taken around 10 minutes to install and set it up on your computer it is very easy to forget it is even there. Unlike other security programs I have used which only annoyed me with alerts that blocked everyday actions I was trying to do, BitDefender rarely demands interaction from users. Of all antivirus programs I have used in the past BitDefender has been by far the easiest to install and use.
The other programs which I have tried aggravated me to the point that for a long time my computer had no protection at all. I of course knew it was risky, and if I had known about BitDefender sooner I would have been using it for sure. When I won it, I didn't install it right away. I knew it was offering antivirus, anti spyware, anti-phishing and anti-spam protection. I knew I would be able to encrypt my files and chat logs as well as optimize my performance, take advantage of backing up my information online, establish a firewall, have access to parental controls and have network protection for my entire home.
Yes, I knew all of that and still waited several weeks before attempting to use BitDefender. I quickly found out that my fear of installing yet another high maintenance security program was unnecessary. You can match the user interface to your level of comfort by choosing Basic, Intermediate, or Expert settings and even create shortcuts to frequently used controls. With automated, hourly updates and 24-7 technical support you can surf the web with absolute confidence.
You can configure the settings in BitDefender to match the way you use your PC. "Typical" is primarily used for everyday browsing and multimedia activities, "Parent" mode can be set while your children are playing, and my personal favorite - "Gamer" mode. Each of these settings also gives you the option to choose whether if you are using a network so you can remotely manage other BitDefender products in your home network, or Laptop mode which ensures the battery of your laptop will last longer by not performing tasks that require extra power.
BitDefender also offers BitDefender Quickscan which is a free online tool that scans your computer for viruses in under 60 seconds to detect any malware infecting your machine. Nothing is worse that going to do some homework and realising you have a virus. Computer problems can be extremely costly to repair, so instead of spending $50-$200 to have your problem diagnosed, simply go to the Quickscan website and start your free scan now.
