A BitDefender product that provides a solid protection for up to 3 PCs

  • Nov 18, 2008

The Good:

* A wide array of tools and scanners, as well as firewall and virus protection
* Gamer Mode/Laptop Mode customizes your experience
* Optional online back-up tool
* 2-YEARS/3 PCs subscription makes this a great value

The Bad:

* With the in-your-face alerts, it feels clunky at times
* File Vault feature is cumbersome

The Bottom Line:

A great protection from BitDefender that is also a great value as you get not one, but 2 YEARS of protection for up to 3 PCs. While the protection is very powerful, it could feel clunky at times when it warns you something minor needs to be adjusted. The File Vault feature is a great addition to this suite. However, it makes you scratch your head at times. Instead of simple folder drag and drop feature, it insists on making a vault with an assigned letter and size, following by asking which file(s) you want to put in, which makes the whole process feel cumbersome. However, that does not take away from the fact that the overall protection you get is very powerful.

My mom isn't' too savvy with …

I hadn't been aware of BitDefender before being offered the opportunity to review BitDefender Total Security 2009.     I've used Norton and McAfee and fund plenty to criticize in them. Over the past few years, in fact, my impression is that both brands have become bloated and slow.     BitDefender is a pleasant surprise. Installation is fast and the installer is well done.     Funtionally, BitDefender is very smooth. Setup is extremely …
