Requires: Win 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP MajorGeek says: Bitdefender consistently ranks as one of the best antivirus solutions on the market, often alongside Kaspersky. Forget all the user reviews you have read online. People tend to rate what they like the best without any consideration of the facts. I hate to be so blunt, but you know how user reviews are. Most sites have this rated as a 1-3.5 stars and that’s easily one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen in ratings. BitDefender does not get the attention it deserves while other antivirus programs get more than they deserve. ENOUGH ALREADY! It also does not have nags and popups like other so called free antivirus programs. Those sales pitches take up more resources and BitDefender does a nice job running without being annoying on resources. I recently decided to switch when my favorite antivirus keeps popping up windows while I am playing games. So the reality is that if you truly want one of the best antivirus programs on the market, you’re looking at it.

"What makes Bitdefender better than other free antiviruses?"
Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition uses a combination of Cloud scanning and behavioural analysis to detect new or unknown threats that other antiviruses miss.
Exclusive, top-of-the-heap defense

Bitdefender uses proprietary technology, as well as other technologies integrated to provide maximum strength against e-threats.

Real-time Shield

The real time shield is designed to protect your entire system from infected files coming from the outside, before they have a chance to spread inside your PC.
Active Virus Control

Proactive technology that quickly and accurately detects potential threats, even in cases of new viruses for which there is no default protection released yet.
Intrusion Detection System

Ensures that applications trying to access the Internet or the network are not masked malware. Intrusion Detection is automatically alerted when such apps behave in a suspect manner, and blocks them when they go over the limit.
B-Have

Proactively detects unknown threats that other products miss, by analyzing how apps behave in a safe environment. If no malicious actions are detected, B-Have starts the program normally. Otherwise, it will automatically quarantine or delete it.
HTTP Scanning

Protects you from scams such as credit card phishing attempts, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition scans all the links you access from your browser and blocks them when they prove to be unsafe.
Anti-rootkit

Rootkits are a type of stealth software, often malicious, that can help hackers get control of your computer. Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition uses special technology that detects and blocks such malicious software.

Light. Automatic.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition uses an intelligent mechanism that can automatically take the optimum decisions to provide ironclad security without slowing down your computer.

Early Boot Scanning

This technology scans the system at boot time, as soon as all critical services are loaded. Early boot scanning ensures virus detection at system startup, while also improving boot time.
Auto Scan

A huge time and resource saver, Auto Scan is a Bitdefender proprietary technology that focuses virus detection efforts on risky areas.

Why go with the free version when you can get a license for the paid version for free?
But how long do you get the paid version for? The AV giveaways tend to be shorter term, or one-shot non-stacking extended trials.

Exactly Smile It's been quite sometime that there are always 6 month offers here and there for BD. Seems after a 6 month usage there's another one out there surfacing to augment your next 3 or 6 months Wink
