    Software Reviews and Critisims

    • By “Bob” Dobbs

      It works great and the one here is FREE!

      Bitdefender has a paid version, yes, but this version is not the one that costs money, this version is 100% FREE! “Bitdefender Virus Scanner”, the thing you see here, is the free one. “Bitdefender Antivirus for Windows” (from their website) and “Bitdefender Virus Scanner Plus” (from the Windows App Store) both cost money. Oh and they also have something else free on their website called “Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool for Windows” but it can only remove TWO adware programs, “Genieo" and “Vsearch”, not a very long list, although to be fair, those are the most common ones. Anyway the point is, there are some other reviews here which are rather negative and complain about being ripped off out of money. Well none of those apply to this product because it is completely free, right here in the Windows App Store it is listed as free, sure there is a “Plus” version that costs money but if you get this free version you will NOT be charged anything. I am trying this along with the free version of Malwarebytes Antimalware, hopefully using both of them can clean up my Windows from an infection of some malware.

      Viruses are gone, I can now rest easy!

      I knew I had downloaded one of these sucker viruses. I had tryed to search downloads, and finder, but to no avail. The virus had hidden itself within my ammassed amount of files. This virus was running rampant on the computer, It was slowing down the applacations and was always on my screen. But Bitdefender fixed all of that! It ran a fully fledged deep scan on the computer, not only did I have a virus, I had four of them! Apparently those other 3 viruses were studying my search patterns and selling data. Who knows what they would've sold about me if these Viruses were still ravaging the computer. Thank you Bitdefender for protecting my computer! Edit : My good review is now gone. In litterally a day, the viruses were back. I thought the whole purpose of the program was to DELETE the viruses? This is truely a shame.

      Easy to install, use and VERY effective

      I have used Bitdefender for years (Windows only). I am very impressed how Bitdefender has continually improved the ease of installation, updating and use. Very impressive how Bitdefender has reduced the virus deep scan time over the years. If you keep your OS updates current, regularly back ups using Time PC, run adware and popup blockers in Safari, only download approved software from the App Store, and frequently update and run Bitdefender deep scans, you will significantly decrease your risk of malware exposure. There are no 100% full-proof security solutions, but conscientious and committed user security practices including Bitdefender come close.

      Works great

      I downloaded Bitdefender a couple of days ago. I also downloaded Antivirus Zap at the same time. Both seem to work great. I wanted to be able to use both, to see if they both pick up any infected files. They both did, after doing a scan earlier today. Not sure if they were all the same files that they found, though. Next time, I’ll check to compare them both. In any case, they both are picing up adware and trogjans, as well as malware, so I’m happy with the results.

      Having enormous trouble getting updates to download!

      Having enormous trouble getting updates to download! Tried all sorts of trick when getting error messages. Sometimes able to passby the error messages and succeed in downloading the updates. All the tricks failed at my last attempt which has prompted me to say something here! We need help! It really is not working properly anymore. And just tried to get through to Support and yes the site came up on ;my browser but I could not find the product that I have listed and therefore the site would not allow me to go forward and report my problems and get help. This is NOT good at all!
