I used it in its free form. But I don't like it, yes, maybe it has a good AV engine, but it's too minimal as settings for my tastes.
True. But most of that performance issues are solved changing a couple of settings. Not a big problem to me, after all.For security and ease of use, Bitdefender is very good.
But it has performance issues. It may get heavy on system resources. It may slow internet access.
All of this you can solve changing some setings in BitDefender.just good in detection,I use BD for 1 year,bug bug bug...
bug1: when you updated it your hard gone bust
bug2:increase boot time after restart
bug3:slowdown system badly(when you downloading file)
Its 9 months that I use Kaspersky and love it
I agree. Most users don't feel a big slow-down in boot time. Something is not right.Seems that you might have leftovers from a previous antivirus installation. I would recomend you to contact bitdefender support (I know, they are a bit slow, but eventually they will solve it).
And after running the KaV remover, repair the Bitdefender install tooI agree. Most users don't feel a big slow-down in boot time. Something is not right.
If you once used kaspersky, and then you switched to bitdefender, that's your problem. You must run the kav remover tool, for the sake of your sanity. You can still run it, if you wish.
+1To my opinion Bitdefender is really that good. As for what is better Kaspersky or Bitdefender it's more subtle question.
