    Hi Guys,

    Any of you using or have used in the past BitDefender AV program? If so how did you find it?
    Looking at the link below it seems to be a very good product.

    Why would it? It doesn't come with a virus scanner. Windows Defender, which comes with Vista, is an anti-spyware tool, not an anti-virus tool.

    I had bitdefender about a year ago, it worked fine on the laptop, but i had problems on the desktop with it. It was mainly the firewall component causing problems with my music server. It didnt matter how i configured it, it kept blocking the ports for the server, i had to remove it in the end.

    The Free AVG 7.5 offering works for me 8)

    If you want to pay, I would then recommend NOD32 too.

    Yeah, but that wont stop users installing crappy free music software and then wonder why they get pop up ads every 5 seconds :blink
