Customer Reviews:

  • Only understandable to pros.
    Not intuitive at all. Very limited built-in help. Hard-to-access service and no answer at their 800 number. All-in-all the 2 of 5 stars I'm giving is generous. The actual product isn't bad, but you need to be a BitDefender employee in order to figure it out. After 5 emails asking for help, I got a generic response with instructions to email them for help!...more info
  • Bang for your buck + Backup.
    After setting up the software on each of the PC's in my home-office LAN, I was pleasantly surprised that the firewall ruleset(s) were fairly automatic and the other sections were easily tune-able as well. The really nice feature (for me) was the ability to automate backup to my NAS (LaCie) device. The software allows for a mix of full and incremental backups with a settable number of backup files to keep. So, if you want to do a full every month, and augment with incremental every week with 3 fulls and 10 incrementals - you can do that. (That gives you 3 full restore points with a 10-day incremental "window")

    The overhead of the processes spawned by bitdefender is very low - and the systray clutter is minimal - just one icon to launch the software, two clicks to update. GOOD DESIGN!

    I use layered defenses and this is one layer - but at the price I paid - and the associated features of this product for my whole family? I am super happy with this product. ...more info
  • I'm very impressed so far..........
    The virus scan is fast and seems to be very effective. The backup tool works as well as any I have used - I haven't used the restore feature so can't comment on that. The rest of the features are pretty generic and seem to work well. BitDefender Total Security runs circles around Windows Live OneCare which I dumped as soon as BD arrived. Installation was simple. Hourly antivirus updates make me feel comfortable with security issues. I have kept Spyware Doctor in case BD lets me down on the malware front. ...more info
  • very happy
    the only reason, i didn't give it 5 stars was that i will not know until next year how well the 2 year antivirus works - but I am very happy with the product and amazon.com...more info
  • Worst Security Program Available
    If you want absolute security, this is your program. I have had problems connecting to the internet, dowloading new programs, running exising programs and more. This program works so well nothing else will.

    Don't buy this!!!...more info
  • May protect your computer while making it useless
    To be honest, my computer wasn't useless while I tried running this but it was unable to do basic tasks like burning data to a CD (wouldn't work with either Roxio or Nero). Trying to do so would freeze the computer up to the point that after a couple hours I would have to unplug the machine to get it to shut down. Bitdefender's support staff listened to my problems and were only able to tell me that they would fix the problem in a future version. And to top it off I managed to get 2 different malware programs on my computer while running this. A waste of money....more info

  • Amazing software
    Amazing software

    Truly the best Total security

  • The best
    I've used Bitdefender in my computer business for yrs with great success. 3 computers for 2 yrs for the lowest price possible. What more can you ask for. It has the best virus protection of any on the market. I've used them all and when i need to clean a system Bitdefender is all I need. Great product...more info
  • Unpredictable
    I've used Total Security 2008 on two computers for over three months. I never know what it's going to do next. I was working recently when systray status icon and the File and Network activity indicators quit and then stopped working. I couldn't tell whether it was still working or whether the computer was still protected. I rebooted. Within a week, the same thing happened to my son's computer.

    I still don't understand all the security messages that pop up constantly. I switched to Bit Defender after using Norton for years. Norton just seemed to slow down my computers. However, Bit Defender seems to be a bigger distraction. I installed Norton IS 2009 on my new computer and don't notice it's there, so I'll probably replace the Bit Defender with Norton, since Norton is cheap on Amazon and Bit Defender was free with the rebate (I hate to loose a two year subscription, but I'm loosing a headache, too.)

    Also if you have a rebate, make sure you pester them. I waited 10 weeks before calling and they brushed me off. I decided I'd call back periodically to remind them that it was overdue. I finally got someone to "escalate" it and the rebate came two days later, 3 months of waiting....more info

  • BitDefender
    Very good product. My computer was a mess before installing. Now it is up and running with no issues....more info
  • Norton 360... er... BitDefender 2008
    BitDefender seems to have taken a cue from the more popular AV software in its newest release. BitDefender 2008's appearance has changed dramatically in its new incarnation; its master interface looks and feels suspiciously like Symantec's Norton Antivirus. While the attempt to be more user friendly is a good thing, the controls may feel bulky and inefficient for those used to the old setup. Further, the BitDefender console can run quite slowly on less powerful computers, and, oddly, some buttons don't seem to work at times.

    BitDefender 2008 also seems to suffer functionality problems on some systems (I run Vista Home Premium); occasionally features (update, identity control, stealth mode, and firewall among them) will simply stop working (BitDefender will say they are "unavailable"), and not start again until the computer is restarted. This is usually associated with either an update that requires a system restart (in which case it will inform you) or coming back from sleep or hybernation (in which case it will NOT always say your protection has been compromised). This seems to have improved as the software has been patched, but it's still not 100%.

    Despite these hangups, BitDefender is a solid piece of internet security software. 2008 is loaded with features; all those from the last version plus some new ones, including automatic file backup, registry cleaner, identity control, a basic disk defragmenter, game mode, and a file shredder (I won't bother explaining them here; check the BitDefender website and they'll tell you all about it). Makeover aside, it still provides the same superior protection old customers will expect and new ones appreciate.

    Bugs aside, BitDefender still makes the grade, with quicker definitions updates and better heuristic detection than most competitors, including Norton and McAffe. If you're willing to tolerate its flaws, it provides efficient and effective antivirus, P2P, and firewall protection....more info
  • So So AntiVirus
    Better than norton, panda or McAfee Av. After installing bitdefender, I found out product comes with enormous options of customizing the needs and doesn't take much memory resource like Trend Micro AV. However,after installing bitdefender, I can't remote desktop from my PC nor go to Microsoft Windows network. but I can browse or ping. I immediately knew this product messed up my registry settings. I ran winsockfix and problem got resolved. I don't expect bitdefender touch my existing software and mess up without my permission. I would not consider this as a quality antivirus product and that's why bitdefender will get 2 stars. ...more info
  • Bit Defender
    What a pleasant alternative to Norton and McAfee. This product runs seemlessly on XP Pro SP2 on my desktop and my Vista Home Premium laptop. The default settings are OK, but for max protection you need to tweak it a little. It is not nearly the resource hog that Norton, McAfee, and F-Secure are. It also does a better job of catching the nasties out there. I am sold on this product and would recommend it to anyone for home or business computing protection....more info
  • good product bad service
    The program installs easily and is excellent in finding viruses and malware, but with any program, it is only as good as it's service. I have some issues with the program and have tried contacting support numerous times.. going on 2 weeks and still no response. Although the program is better than most I would seek one that also gave good service...more info
  • Needs some work, but OK
    We installed this on an XP and a Vista system. On the Vista system, the registry program works not at all. I have a registry repair pro freebie that found 282 errors, while bit defender said there were 0. I could tell by the way it was running that there were registry problems, and indeed it was back in top form after running the freebie. There are also problems on vista with it not performing some of the tasks it is supposed to, and I haven't gotten solutions to that downloaded yet.

    On the good side, it seems to be much less intrusive and obnoxious than Norton 360 I had before. I didn't like them AT ALL and was glad to get it off my computer. With some tuning up, this will be a nice program. We liked the two year/three computer package very much. Norton was nightmare to renew, and hopefully the less often I have to renew the better it will be. ...more info
