Do you want an antivirus that is the best rated all over the web, best in its work, speed, security, and everything in common? Then you would have to try this one. Kaspersky and BitDefender are the best antivirus software ever, and are recommended personally by the MyWindowsZone.
BitDefender is the small up-and-coming security vendor. With a focus on the end user and confusion-free usage, BitDefender’s Total Security 2009 package gives you well-rounded coverage in an appealing package. However, does the branding "Total Security" live up to its name? The Tech Herald put the software through its paces to find out.
BitDefender’s Total Security 2009 offers all the normal protection layers. The software offers layered defense from Malware by including an engine that scans for Rootkits, Worms, Trojans, and potentially harmful applications based on action alone. The firewall stops targeted scans for passive infection and includes parental controls. There are also little features to round out the software package.
Install Notes provided by the Official Website:
The computer tested was an Intel Pentium D 3.4GHz (Dual Core), 1024MB RAM, with Windows XP SP3. BitDefender Total Security 2009 was installed with the base configurations enabled for this test.
The total time spent on the install process was just over six minutes. Afterward, there is a required re-boot of the system and a nine step post-install process to follow. The nine steps use a menu to walk you through the various settings and configuration options. Most are default coverage, but it is best to go through each step and learn what is going on behind the scenes. Like the Norton install process, you will also be asked to sign up for a BitDefender user account.
At the end of the nine-step configuration, you are prompted to update the software and run a scan. Make sure you do this, as the software is updated hourly in most cases, so you are already missing several update releases. The update process and the initial scan are the longest parts to the overall install and configuration, an initial scan took about 16 minutes.
What is unique about the install and initial scan is that after all that is said and done, the Total Security 2009 software wants to check for updates again. This is one of several system checks the software wants to complete, which is what is explained when you launch the system controls.
