Excellent product, easy install only one slight issue,
This review is from: BitDefender Internet Security 2013 - 3 User 1 Year (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (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.
I'm still waiting for Support to tell me that solution (its a sort of test)
and the reason for the constant failed Updates and annoying red warnings - -no other A/V does that.
UPDATE: Support just gave me idiot level non-related suggestions, I suggested they haven't got a clu and gave them the solution.
They agreed - surprisingly - I suspect the real techs don't come out into daylight that often, so leave these fools on the support desk to make the tea.
Should you buy it over Kaspersky, Norton, AVG and even F-secure?
