Now Bitdefender is also in competition with MSE, Avast, AVG and Avira in the market of free antivirus. :)


Bitdefender has released a light weight free antivirus with minimalisti user interface. The program is cloud based so there is no impact on performance. It's an 'install and forget' type of antivirus. It doesn't require any configuration and you won't even see any security alerts or nag screens. The antivirus checks files as you access them, runs system scans when your PC is idle. You can also scan files and folders on demand by right-clicking them.

It's not an update to Bitdefender 10 Free edition, instead it's a completely new antivirus, totally free!

I'll install it today on Windows 8 where Avast is also enabled. I think I'll feel safer with BitDefender.  :lol:

BitDefender's virus definition is really effective. If anyone here is looking for a free on-demand antivirus then check out Bitdefender 60-Second Virus Scanner.

Don't uninstall your existing antivirus. These on-demand scanners don't include some important features like web scanner, behavior-based threat protection and sandbox mode.

Bitdefender Free Edition can be used as the main antivirus. It has anti-rootkit, HTTP scanner for phishing and malware infected websites and sandbox environment of its B-Have engine for detecting unknown threats by monitoring their behavior.
