  • 1 GB available free hard disk space
  • Intel CORE Duo (1.66 GHz) or equivalent processor
  • RAM: - 1GB (Windows XP and Windows 7)
    • RAM: - 1.5 GB (Windows Vista)
    • Internet Explorer 7
    • .Net Framework 2 (also available in the installer kit)
    • Adobe Flash Player

BitDefender Antivirus Pro protects you and your PC from a number of online threats, including viruses, spyware, phishing scams, and more. The software basically covers you from every angle, protecting you from threats on the internet, email, and even instant messaging. The program scans all web, IM, and email traffic for malware. The software is even equipped to encrypt your IM chat conversations.

One of the new features that further improves the scope of protection is the Search Advisor. This tool is built-in to the internet browser and provides protection while surfing online (similar to Norton Safe Web or McAfee SiteAdvisor). It used to be that if you only clicked on the top links from a search engine result, you were pretty safe. The tool provides at-a-glance icons next to each search result to let you know it’s safe before you click.

Simply hover over the icon for more information. The little green checkmarks provide peace of mind, and don’t interfere with your internet speed or online experience. Most users will get used to them almost instantly.

Another feature designed with protection and performance in mind is the Active Virus Control. This feature was introduced last year and is specifically designed to detect and demolish stealth threats. The software has been using advanced heuristic detection for a while now, but new malware have taken steps to avoid being analyzed by these technologies. Active Virus Control uses proactive measures to continually monitor all application activity, keeping an eye on file behaviors that look suspicious. One minor discrepancy won’t stop the file in question (thus avoiding false-positives), but if enough malware-like actions are detected, BitDefender Active Virus Control will lock it down.

Laptop Mode:

Another specialty mode available is the laptop mode. This feature can also be setup to run automatically, and will take special care to save resources when your laptop is unplugged.

No More File Damaged Problems:

BitDefender is set to perform updates automatically, and run in the background without slowing down your computer. You don’t have to manually update (though you can if you want), and more importantly, you don’t have to worry about updates slowing down your system.

Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about updates causing problems or losing program files. If file damage does occur (rare), BitDefender is setup to automatically repair itself with the newest working update.

The software is well-balanced and provides all the essential security without some of the gimmicky features we’ve seen elsewhere.

  • 1 GB available free hard disk space
  • 800MHz processor

    • 512 MB (Windows XP)

The best antivirus also depends on the amount of disk space and the RAM that your system have.
