Beware Vista Users

by TechnicalGuru on 1/3/2008

This Antivirus system will not always perform properly with Vista. 24/7 tech support is virtually non-existent and is apparently based in Romania. The Support agents will pretend they can't hear you (if using the 1-888 number) or will disconnect (when using the internet chat based sessions) when they cannot figure out your problem. They are also rude, and this leads me to believe they are aware of the Vista Incompatibility. The "No questions asked" refund is impossible to collect on, and they are trained to give customers the run-around. This is an actual quote from a Bitdefender 2008 technical support chat session (1/3/07): My IP Relay: **(sounds like laughing)** (sounds like sighing) My IP Relay: tell him too bad u bought the anti virus from romania

Great Value

by IMHO on 2/27/2008

I love BitDefender it seems to be the best value for the price other than using something free that dosent update. I have no Vista issues like the other reviewer but he seems to be reviwing the older version that didnt support Vista based on the dates in his review. I found it work much better than Norton - set & forget in my situation.

Product Overview

BitDefender Antivirus 2008 provides you with state of the art proactive protection against viruses, spyware, phishing attacks, rootkits, and more for up to 3 PCs AND 2 Years of coverage.

Proactive Protection from: Malware (Viruses, Trojans, Worms, and other threats). BitDefender actively protects your PC from all types of malicious code. Web traffic is filtered even before reaching your browser, for a safe and enjoyable web experience. Messaging and peer-to-peer applications are also monitored to help prevent viruses from spreading.

Spyware and Adware. Based on a comprehensive spyware signature database, BitDefender blocks spyware threats in real-time, before they can damage your system. It also monitors dozens of potential “hotspots” where spyware might act, and checks for any changes made to your system and software.

Unknown Viruses. BitDefender has developed B-HAVE (Behavioral Heuristic Analyzer in Virtual Environments), a new technology designed to detect and block new and unknown threats without the need for an update. By analyzing the behavior of potentially malicious software inside a virtual computer, this technology eliminates false positives and significantly increases detection rates.

Hidden Threats (Rootkits). BitDefender looks for and removes rootkits, malicious programs designed to control your computer, while staying hidden.

Phishing Attacks. Blocks malicious websites trying to trick you into revealing personal information, such as financial data.

To address gamers’ needs BitDefender 2008 introduces the Gamer Mode, a "profile" or a collection of protection settings chosen by experts at the BitDefender Labs in order to keep the product’s impact low and the game, safe. The Gamer Mode profile can be used with any game and it can be turned on with just one click. This mode allows achieving three goals that are essential to a smooth gaming experience: minimized system load, zero demands on the network connection and no interruptions.
