2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Probably works fairly well and protecting your system.

Cons: Clunky, non-intuitive interface makes configuring the software a pain.

Other Thoughts: Bought this as a knee-jerk reaction to a trojan that brought in a rootkit and dismantled some of Windows' services (still can't recover these, need to reformat). It was free after rebate, but I still just used it for a week then uninstalled it. I'm sticking to Microsoft Security essentials.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good!

Pros: Does its job and does it well! I tested this software against some recent threats, and it "quarantined" all of them while on auto-pilot mode. Firewall was easy to configure, and spam detection is OK.

Cons: These cons are very minor:
1. Network management could only connect to other computers by IP. The default of using the MAC did not work out-of-the box. I didn't have time to play around with my router or other firewalls.
2. Updates occasionally fail, but do so without notifying the user. The software automatically retries and usually succeeds shortly afterwards.
3. Spam filters and mail scanning seem to only work well using Outlook. On a computer with Mozilla Thunderbird, no mail scanning seemed to take place using IMAP+SSL.

Other Thoughts: I liked the adaptive spam filter of thunderbird better than the pre-fed filter of Bitdefender. This is a matter of preference, and the bitdefender filters seemed to get rid of a good chunk of the junk.

Overall, it's very good security software. It does an excellent job of protecting the user. It has tons of extras, but not all the extras seem to work as well as they should. If you're just wanting security software, this is a good one!

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Darned Good

Pros: Doesn't seem to take a lot of system resources, not intrusive (auto pilot works well), easy install, good catches on protection.

Cons: Doesn't like Malwarebytes or other AVP programs installed on your HD; you may be forced to delete those.

5 out of 5 eggsHas Great Flexible Features

Pros: 1) very good protection performance with low observed latency (does not noticably slow down my online performance like Norton does)
2) integrated well into both Vista pro 32bit and win7home 64bit
3) very flexible set-up options for the advanced user
4) auto pilot works flawlessly

Cons: 1) none so far - but I am keeping a watchful eye on it.

Other Thoughts: I have Norton IS 2012 loaded on my i7 work machine. It works well, but you can tell Norton is slowing machine response as it protects. I am not a bitdefender fanboy.This BD just works better, faster than NIS 2012. I use both BDAV and BDIS. Avast free for home works very very well on W7 too! But bitdefender has the edge, and is very configurable. It has caught a couple of nasty scripts/malware for me. You can't beat BD, especially when on sale. Like right now. in 4 one.

4 out of 5 eggsPrice is right!

Pros: Easy to install, update and setup. Provides good protection to my Windows 7 PC. Has a decent amount of options to setup if one wants to have more specific control.

Cons: Blocks my Trade Architect streamer from TD Ameritrade. Have not found a workaround to this problem yet.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Bitdefender Internet Security has been solid protection for me and my family. It is easy to install, easy on the memory, and has caught, stopped, and communicated virus protection. 3 computers for two years, it is a really great value. They also gave a friends and family bonus for registering your product (although that could have been a limited time offer).

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I would purchase it again.
