Scanning and removal
On demand scanning - Powerful scan engines ensure detection and removal of all viruses in whenever you need.

Scan scheduled
You can program the system checked at any time, periodically, without any other intervention in the computer when not in use.

Immediate scanning
With just a right click you can check your files and folders.

Skinable interface
You can express yourself, designing new interfaces, or you can use those created by others.

Quarantine
The risk of getting infected is reduced by isolating the infected files in quarantine. You also can send these files for analysis to BitDefender Labs.

File Report
When launching a scan you may choose to create a report file where you can see statistics about the process.

Download is 243MB. :surprised:

Going to take a whirl at it in the VM, even though I don't understand the language. :p

Edit: Managed to install it. Needed to created BitDefender account. Log in to website says I have 912 days left for Free AV 2011.

Every PC I have seen with BitDefender on it comes with multiple infections as well so I don't imagine this fairing well in your VM testing. It just never seems to do very well in real world usage.

From what i know they have one installer for all builds and you unlock only your license. Maybe that's the reason why the installer is so huge.

I haven't tried it but on the english site is says that realtime protection is offered only in the paid AV. Look here

And what I know from experience is that the free addition is a on-demand scanner with no realtime protection.

Did you tested it? If not, don't assume you know the answer. The new version of BitDefender Free has real-time protection! Maybe they will release the same version in English.

You can also get an English version of this if you modify a file in the installation package with 7-zip.
See here.
With this guide (above), you can get realtime protection. I've not tested to see if it works.

An information from a post in wilders.

Searching the forum for my dearest word , I've found this thread.
I'm not allowed to disclose much info right now, but I can tell you that my team is in the final stage of developing a new AV concept, and most likely it will be the base for the future Free Edition

This new concept is different from the current BD solutions..

BD v2011 Free Edition is limited only to Romanian and Brazilian, there are no plans (as far as I know) to release it in other languages
