  • I am using it. Great software but i think kasperasky is better than it.

  • I have tried Bitdefender 2 years ago, but the license expired. Some friend told me to try a free Antivirus called AVG antivirus (recently acquired by Avast). What I found was AVG does not scan my computer all the time, and I never get any warnings about suspicious sites, etc, like I used to get from Bitdefender. I think that Bitdefender was protecting my computer proactively as well as passively. I am now considering switching back to Bitdefender. And after reading your article it seems that Bitdefender was even improved a lot for 2016. Thanks for the review, Atish!
