Unparalleled Security
• Bitdefender stops emerging e-threats that other products miss by capitalizing on live and virtualized behavior-based detection, in addition to cloud-based services. *AV-Test, May 2012: Overall Highest Score for Protection, Repair and Usability
Bitdefender Safepay™ - Keeps hackers at bay by automatically opening all your online banking pages in a separate, secure browser.
MyBitdefender dashboard - See all the status and licensing information about your software and services in your own, MyBitdefender dashboard. Now accessible from anywhere, anytime, from any Internet-connected device.
Security Widget - Enables you to keep track of all of your security related tasks, plus lets you quickly and easily drag-and-drop files for quick scanning for viruses—right from your desktop!
Parental Control - Blocks inappropriate content, restricts Web access between certain hours, and helps you remotely monitor your children's online activity – even on Facebook!
USB Immunizer - Immunizes any Flash Drive from viruses, when they are connected to your computer, so that you never worry again about USBs infecting you or your friends.
Active Virus Control - A proactive, dynamic detection technology which monitors processes’ behavior in real-time, as they are running, and tags suspicious activities.
Rescue Mode - If e-threats, such as rootkits, cannot be removed from within the Windows operating system, the computer is re-booted in Rescue mode—a trusted environment which is then used for cleanup and restoration.
Vulnerability Scanner - Checks for missing or outdated security software, missing Windows security patches, as well as potentially unsafe system settings.
Antispam - Stops unwanted e-mail from reaching your Inbox.

• Bitdefender Autopilot™ - Bitdefender Autopilot™ provides a hassle-free experience by making optimal security-related decisions without input from you. This means no pop-ups, no alerts, nothing to configure.

Social Networking Protection

• Social Network Protection - Bitdefender filters/blocks social-networking specific e-threats by scanning the links you receive from your Facebook and Twitter friends, monitors your privacy settings, and much more!
• Search Advisor - The Link Filter relies on intelligence provided by Bitdefender Cloud services to flag malware and phishing attempts in search engine results.

Total Privacy
• Threats to your privacy keep diversifying. Your e-mail, your messaging, your entire Web presence and activities can be targeted. Bitdefender addresses them all, protecting your data with a range of specialized modules and functions.
Personal Data Filter - Prevents critical data (such as anything even resembling your social security number) from ever leaving your computer.
Antiphising - Analyzes and blocks websites that support various scams or credit card phishing attempts.
File Shredder - Ensures that no traces of your deleted sensitive files remain on your PC

Social Networking Protection

Full speed!
• Bitdefender 2013 takes “scheduled scanning” to a whole new level, as the scanning only takes place when your system is idle.
Scan Dispatcher - The Scan Dispatcher finds and uses time-slices when system resource usage falls below a certain threshold to perform recurring scans of your entire system. This way Bitdefender does not interfere with user-initiated actions and does impact system responsiveness.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I uninstalled Kaspersky and installed this product (Kaspersky was annoying me with its system slow down and constantly blocking log-in sites and loosing my passwords (which were also password protected & secured in Firefox)

    In recent major virus lab tests (Which! for one)- this program came out #1 by a wide margin with higher viral detection and root kit removal than any other program - I was glad to try it out.

    In use its pretty unobtrusive, doesn't slow the system, ask silly questions every 10 minutes (which fox noobies) and was very easy to install - it even had a short registration code and in BIG letters (Kaspersky needed a magnifier! AVG is 2 stage e-mail process and a real pain in the ar*e)

    One weird issue - The small black life ring on the screen indicates the status - no other has this.
    But there are little numbers in red (on black) indicating messages.

    Well it seems the hourly updates are failing about every 3 for one successful update.
    It's hourly - I don't need to be told that.
    Not only but also - you can't remove them - the 'delete' message button is greyed out.

    A-ha - I realised. It's admin only.

    Only fools and horses run their primary internet account with full admin privileges (you knew that didn't you?)
    Rt click and choose 'Run as Administrator' then you can select the red messages and remove them.


    I've asked Support days ago - they sent me a data gathering tool, that took forever to run - seriously nearly 45 mins and then the log file was not visible to send back to support.


    It's been left on the admin desktop.
    Think you can fool me?
    No - But it would fool noobies.

    4.0 out of 5 stars I trust it but not as nice as before 7 Oct 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I have been using BitDefender for quite a few years now and the price on the web is always better than they offer you direct.
    I am a big fan of the software. It doesn't slow down your machine like the major competitors yet it seems just as secure in what it finds and quarantines.

    My only gripe is that the settings on the user interface are no where near as easy to use as on the 2011 and 2012 versions and setting up child accounts with managed settings is just plain confusing.

    However, all that said, I still reckon its the best antivirus software out there.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bitdefender defends ok 29 Sep 2012
    By gefb
    Verified Purchase
    Have tried many different security software products, all of which failed to impress me for one reason or another but Bitdefender has finally found a friend in me, I leave it set on auto pilot and it beavers away doing it's work, the widget on the desktop lets you see what it's doing, it scans all hardware and software that you connect and tells you if a Windows update is required and installs it as well, installation went smoothly on my three Windows 7 computers, I recommend this product without reservation.
    Update March 1st 2014, since buying a new computer on Windows 8.1 Bitdefender has decided it needs to do a full scan every day, this impacts enormously on resources to the extent that I have to wait 90 minutes for the scan to finish because it slows my computer down so much that I can't do anything, I have now uninstalled it and have a free one month trial of ESET, which up to now I am very happy with. My other two computers on Windows 7 are still on Bitdefender with no real problems.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Non-invasive Anti-virus 12 Nov 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Selected latest BitDefender on the basis of reviews on [...] replace an installation of Webroot (preferring to switch to whomever is considered best at the time the subscription expires). So far I 've not been disappointed. It sits quietly in the background and does its thing. Not seeing any false positives and it doesn't appear to be interfering with any of my apps.

    The only slight problem I had was with its Safepay application which I had selected to use to access my bank account website. It seemed to conflict with that banks own security measures so I ended up disabling it for that site.

    Other than that, no problems to report.

    By not_a_real_folkie VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I've used several antivirus/security programs over the years - Sophos, McAfee, Norton, AVG (paid-for and free versions) and now my first installation of this product. In the box you get a DVD and a licence key. Installation starts when you insert the DVD, although an active network connection is required to download the latest updates. If you're a bit jumpy about being connected to the internet while you're "between antivirus programs", you can set up Bitdefender offline and then go online to get the updates once the program is running.

    In the end it all went relatively smoothly, and the virus protection has worked so far... there were just a couple of odd things during installation (as there were with McAfee and AVG installs, I recall). The installer invites you to choose a username and password for your online "My Bitdefender" account - and immediately fired up my web browser with... a completely blank page. Just a pleasant pastel blue. I rebooted the computer and got a visible version of the Bitdefender website on the 2nd attempt. It then told me that my account needed to be activated and that an activation link was being sent to my e-mail address... but nothing turned up, and the website appeared to operate as normal. Perhaps that's to accommodate download-only installs, but it left an 'uncompleted' feeling. Finally, on the grumble list, Windows (7) kept flagging up that "Anti-spyware is out of date" - clicking on this notification started a Bitdefender executable that reported nothing and didn't tell me whether it was running or had finished. The Windows alert didn't go away, so I tried another reboot, and this time it had disappeared.
