1 out of 5 eggsActs like beta software.

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.
When I started putting it on customers' PC's is when I began to see that 3 out of 4 machines began experiencing all sorts of weird problems from slowing to a crawl, locking up programs, blocking FTP access, and on one the inability to print pdf files from IE10. It seemed that no 2 problems were the same except that removing bitdefender fixed them all. Some problems were intermittant making it more difficult to pin on bitdefender, until bitdefender was removed. Bitdefender support tried to help, but all they did was have myself, and my customers that contacted them directly, turn off the firewall and other protection modules included with the package. Why purchase an antivirus suite if you have to turn off everything besides the antivirus and make exceptions within the antivirus for every other program on the PC?
This is the same for new builds and older machines, of course using the currently installed antivirus uninstall tool and making sure the PC is clean of viruses and malware for older machines before installing bitdefender.

Other Thoughts: 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. Do yourself a favor and just pick up one of the readily available free antivirus solutions available, because this is not even worth it if it was free. I took it off all PC's I had it on and destroyed all my install keys so no one else could be harmed by this buggy software.

2 out of 5 eggsBitdefender -Problematic on older Machines

Pros: Good rebate.
Working well on two laptops

Cons: Unable to make it run on older desktop
See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: First of all KUDOs to Newegg Customer Service for going above and beyond expectations when I had a problem with my rebate for this product!!
I have installed this product on an Acer and HP laptop without any issues, and it seems to do all it says.
On my older eMachine T6003 with a 1.8GHz AMD Athlon 64 processor, 4 GB of memory, running windows 7, the product crippled my browser access. While Bitdefender technical support opened 2 separate tickets nothing they recommended fixed the problem their product caused when accessing the internet. After numerous resets, running the repair utility several times, restoring to a pre Bitdefender state and then doing 3 new installs I have given up. If I had been able to get this problem resolved my rating would be 4 eggs, taking one away because it slows down access.
I did get the product working briefly, but needed to disconnect and reconnect from the network each time to establish a connection. In addition, to the network issue I also observed at various times, password corruption, and the application failing to respond error message. I will try again if there is dot release of this product over next 16 months.
If you have an older machine then this may not be the product for you.

2 out of 5 eggsBitdefender

Pros: Easy install. On sale.

Cons: I was using Microsoft Security Essentials and decided to try this because of the sale price of $7.95. It seems to have slowed my system considerably. I still have options for 2 more machines for 2 years but I think I'll pass.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome deal with great protection

Pros: Bite defender is an awesome anti virus program that causes no lag unlike the main brands people are use to and have never had a virus while using this for the past 2 years.
Has gaming mode also

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It just works, my subscription had ran out and I waited 3 weeks for newegg to have it on sale again or would have just stuck with Microsoft security essentials.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the best

Pros: Inexpensive. Does well in independent testing. Easy install.

Cons: Detects cookies as viruses.

If you turn off background scanning, it generates a security warning that you cannot turn off.

Detected X-Fi driver as a virus and removed it from system without prompting, rendering sound card inoperative.

Other Thoughts: Not impressed. Although it does well in independent testing, I was amazed to see it flag simple cookies as viruses.

Detecting a common sound driver as a virus is beyond the pale.

Not recommended.

1 out of 5 eggsSlow

Pros: Price, lots of features

Cons: Slowed Core 2 Dual laptop to a crawl. I left it installed for several days hoping things would get better after initial scans...they didn't. Uninstalled and reloaded Symantec Endpoint Protection... Previous performance was restored.

May reload and fiddle with the settings.

Other Thoughts: I was disappointed as I had done a lot of research before I decided what to buy. Low system impacts was one of the review findings.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the BEST A/V products out there

Pros: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus is one of the top rated A/V products on the market. I'm a Computer Consultant with over 30 years experience, and it's one of the few "paid" A/V products that I recommend. It doesn't hog the resources of your PC (like some well-known brands) and provides great protection from most malware, even giving a warning if you go to a malevolent website. Keep in mind this version is Anti-Virus only and does not include a firewall. Buy their Internet Security version if you want a firewall included (or use Windows Firewall or one of the very good free firewalls). I bought this "Value" version on sale for $30 and it has a $30 rebate - So.... FREE! Can't beat the product, can't beat the price! I use both the Windows 7 Pro 64-bit firewall and the free Comodo firewall, but Comodo does take some configuration to work efficiently with Bitdefender (novices shouldn't use Comodo with Bitdefender)

Cons: Not really a con, but some updates do occasionally require a system reboot.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor performance, most attributes are non functional

Pros: Very good AV and Male-ware protection.

User interface is great for people that do not want or need to interact with it.

Autopilot is great for users that wouldn't know how to clean there PC and don't mind paying further dues for there PC to be clean with interactive help from Bitdefender.

Installation was easy.

Cons: Wallet is useless in Win 7 64 bit

Browser Integration in win 7 64 bit is non existent other than Firefox, not IE 10 or 11 do so.

Fire wall does not exist.... it is A complete lie, there is no Firewall at all, PC still using Windows firewall, and there is no option to turn on the bit defender firewall.

It updates to the cloud many times a day, and shoots messages when it can not, this is an issue if you do not have a continuous connection to the internet.

it keeps popping up like an annoying troll............ can't connect, can't connect

Requires Extremely strong passwords, not really a CON but an issue for most users...

Other Thoughts: This is the most annoying AV I have ever bought.

Has no user interaction -1 Egg

Lies on it's protection -2 eggs

Everything else is a lie (THE CAKE IS A LIE!!!!!) -1 egg

(I cant take away the other 3 eggs for them trying to sell you stuff within it.)

Norton is far better than this. I don't care how much you hear people ripping on it, it is user functional, interactive and it works, if it doesn't work for an avid user, toss it out.....

... But for the average person, it might be ok, but I'd suggest Kapersky instead..... Or norton if you know what you are doing. This thing is like a hard clamp on your PC and restricts you from even using it, or interacting with it.

The no firewall means you have no additional protection, they probably stopped using it because they seem to want a user interface that requires no attention, this in not possible for security.

In short, they probably paid for the reviews they received online, and i am feeling a bit ripped of right now, even thou I bought ON SALE, I Gueaa I should have sen that coming, but I guess I can be Naive from time to time.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't beat free!

Pros: On sale for 30 with a 30 mail in rebate. That was the only reason i bought it but i would pay full price now that i have it.
Has gaming mode which is a huge plus for me. Light on resources. 3 PC's for 2 years! I read a lot of reviews on Bitdefender and many sites have it as the best anti virus out there.

Cons: None that i can think of
