1 out of 5 eggsCan not use this program

Pros: Did not use it that long!

Cons: Downloaded trial version. Installed Bitfinder 2012. Browsers all slowed down to the point I could not use them.

Other Thoughts: I removed this software within an hour of trying it. Maybe I should have given it a bit more of a chance but I had downloaded free trials on several others and did not have this problem. So far the Norton appears the best although expensive.

3 out of 5 eggsFinally

Pros: Liked 2010, didn't do a Great job but it also didn't tie up a lot of resources. I think it caught about 2 virus laden e-mails in a 9 month period.Mostly Tracker Cookies,and a couple of bad redirects to hostile or questionable sites. Overall Not Bad,

Cons: 2012 is a totally different animal, it's like running 2 OS's at once, talk about tie up's this Program is using 25% of 2 Quad Core Xeons all by itself. I can't imagine running this on a single dual core. Oh and I sent in the rebate on Jan.6,2011 and it came today almost 4 months later.Every time I checked it said Processing, Well at least I got my cash. There are a few out there that are running 20 weeks or more and I gave up a couple bucks to get them quicker,4 to 6 weeks, yea right!What a Bull Job. I will give them what they deserve when I ever get or if.They will get thier 1 Egg.

Other Thoughts: Bitdefender seems to be trying,I guess If I would have just got the Anti-Virus it might not use so much, But I had to get everything under the sun that I really didn't need (that's the 3 Egg's) I mean, Backup ,Online Backup ,Registry Defrag ,Registry Cleaner ,Regular HD Defrag. ,Old Shortcut Remover ,Old File Deleter ,6 different types of scans, all kinds of firewall settings ,I mean this thing does it all, On and On! So it's Partly My Fault.I really didn't need the total security ,but then again I running it on another old XP unit and it takes 12 hours to do a complete scan, come on 12 hours, whats it check my name with the Fed's, or the city for Parking Tickets. But then I have to think back to the old Norton 2002 days. I'm going to stick with a good anti-Virus Scan like Super Scan and a Malwarebytes for the serious stuff,Heck with these Giant Programs and the daily 15 MB. updates!

1 out of 5 eggsBitdefender Total Security 2012

Pros: Free with rebates

Cons: Required an uninstall of Malwarebytes before it would install.

Other Thoughts: I bought Bitdefender because of the rebate and two-year service when Kaspersky expired. When Bitdefender required me to remove Malwarebytes from my computer, I never installed it. Malwarebytes is the best I have found for malware detection/removal and I shouldn't have to give it up to install Bitdefender. I'll just renew my Kaspersky Pure so I can keep Malwarebytes on my PC.

1 out of 5 eggsThe worse anti virus that i ever bought

Pros: Cheap !!

Cons: Useless, it slowing down the web browser. I have 24 mbps internet, since i installed bitdefender it took about 20 to 30 sec to open Facebook and the other web. Everything was back to normal when i uninstall the bitdefender. Completely ripoff. I WANT MY MONEY BACK

4 out of 5 eggsgreat product

Pros: Excellent AV. Works very well, havent had a problem. It even blocked viruses that Kaspersky and AVG couldnt.

Cons: Slows down computer when running my weekly AV scan.

Other Thoughts: Used this product to test my friend's hard drive because he was having problems. Hooked it into my computer and ran virus scan on it and it found over 1000 viruses in his hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsBitdefender rocks!

Pros: Fairly easy to use, awesome interface, I download a lot and it catches infected files immediately

Cons: The firewall is a really good, but sometimes it automatically blocks safe programs from connecting to the internet, without making it obvious that it's blocked anything. Spent about an hour trying to get a program to work, finally noticed it was being blocked by BD. After I allowed it, problem solved.

Other Thoughts: Best security suite out there!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Let me start out by saying I had AVG for many years, untill I got my Alienware M18x and it just messed everything up. I decided to try bitdefender out and I'm glad I did. It has no performance impact, catches all viruses that come my way, and it's affordable! What more can you ask for?

Cons: The only complaint I have is that after AVG failed me, I needed Bitdefender to clean my pc up, but their prices are a little bit high for the technician to come in and sweep your system for you. Lower the price by $20 and then it's an amazing deal.

Other Thoughts: a must buy for anyone who is serious about security and online safety!

1 out of 5 eggsSlows down PC to a crawl

Pros: Price, but you get what you pay for.

Cons: Slows my PC down to a crawl and no provision to turn off when I am flight simming on a secure Ip to Ip connection, It will let you go into "game mode" which doesn't help. I just ordered Kaspersky for my 3 PCs which I had been using previously. That's what for trying to save a buck. Stupid me

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible tech support

Pros: Virus detection capability is OK. It detected few malware which slipped thru Kaspersky.

Cons: It conflicts with Skype. It doesn't let you log in to Skype. I first spent time with online real time support. She walked me through to grant all possible firewall / antivirus exclusions for Skype. Still no change. Then she forwarded me to second tier tech support. They sent me an email, asking me to download and run their troubleshooting tool. I did that and emailed them with resulting detailed logs. They didn't even bother to reply. After my reminder email; someone jokingly replied and asked me to "load latest version of Skype and try"! Such sick joke. He didn't even bothered to review all that extensive logs which he asked me to send. Before even contacting them I had already tried several different versions of Skype. None worked.

Other Thoughts: Do not waste your time and money. In 4 years this was my second trial of Bitdefender. It always end up with conflicting some software in your system. Then you face with non-existing tech support.
Enough with that nonsense. I'm switching back to Kaspersky.
