That's one of the primary reasons BD and Comodo products are not particularly popular here at MT. Typical MT member gravitates towards Emsisoft, ESET and Kaspersky.Well, with 20 years in the field, I've noticed lots of users can't get lots of things to work. And Comodo is more than generously represented in that arena.
Yes, its a good product if its works on your system. Currently I manage 4 relatives Windows 7 64 laptop with Bd free installed for past 1 year. No probs & infections yet. So if its works on your system then definitely the best free AV with excellent protection & without bloats in my opinion.BD free is good product, if it works on your specific system. Lots of users can't get it to work...
That's a focus too narrow and a notably invalid justification for disparaging a product. One just needs to lurk the developers' own forums to find "lots of users (who) can't get...things to work."not particularly popular here at MT.
Proof-positive that a product has issues... or no, it means something else ?One just needs to lurk the developers' own forums to find "lots of users (who) can't get...things to work."
I don't agree; I see paid versions offering a bunch of non-security-related fluff. Firewall? Fluff--Windows already has one.If AV Companies that offer, both free and paid solutions, which one do you think offers the most protection and latest technologies – the paid one.
Who are these experts and what did they find? (Mass media and commercial testors-for-hire aren't 'experts in the industry')I have listened to a few members on this forum, experts in the industry who are totally aware of the difference between the two.
My wife & I keep our computers on 24/7. I've had at least one computer on since around 1990 (no, not the same computer!). I find it odd that people turn off their computers. (But what do I know; I find it odd people still have televisions and still watch commercials.)Bitdefender free offers the bare basic’s in-terms-of protection, really, who keeps there computer on 24/7, plus it can take a considerable amount of time to detect malware, crypto ransomware would have a field day.
Not quite. While BD implements their "HIPS User-Mode module" library (fwlibrary.dll) from Internet Security as an Intrusion Detection System, the outbound firewall, a construct of fixed allow-or-block rules, on your Windows system is still Windows Firewall. As described on their Web site, the scanning "access (to) the Internet" for "when...apps behave in a suspect manner" provides an enhancement to existing allowed firewall rules.Intrusion Detection System (outbound firewall)
Bitdefender has stated that the Free version is not fully compatible and although it will load on Windows 10 it may (will) not work properly.I stopped in to see if there were any comments about BD Free and Windows 10. A recent posting in Farcebook on Bitdefender's page indicates it's not compatible.
Of course, BD needs to roll out an upgrade. Or deliver a public "no support" statement for Windows 10 as well as an end-of-life timeline for XP thru 8.1 development and support. Either one, ASAP.
I always had to use a VPN to download it. It is annoying, but you can indeed also download it from somewhere else as already mentioned if you don't want to do that.It's funny how it's almost un-downloadable from their website in Belgium
I honestly like their engine and I would love the free version.
I'm from Belgium too, so I had the same problem in the pastGreetings also from Belgium!
