Do not want. BitDefender is one of those "security" solutions that tracks all of your web surfing and phones home.

When i've had to remove this from people's computers for causing issues, I don't think you can pay me to install it. :/

It surprises me that Malwarebytes would miss such an infected machine

My guess is that the malware was rendering MB inactive, I've seen viruses cause machines to refuse to install / update MB many times

Change the MBAM file type from .exe to .cmd and it'll install with the malware running in most cases :)

Nice tip ;)

I used to get around it by just renaming the exe sometimes, to qwerty.exe

Thanks for this!

I was in the process of finding a new A/V anyway, and this one is very low on resources.

lol, I think the 677 day key is actually for BitDefender 2012,

The 365 day keys are for the 2013 version and still work fine

Mine is still working! Don't know for how long but, so far so good.

EDIT: Spoke too soon, the dashboard shows the 676 key as invalid. The program still says as you can see 676 days left and when I click on it, it still says it's a valid key.

Don't install this on Windows 8 x64, I did and my windows explorer started freezing up randomly. Uninstalled and now it's fine. I am using a custom theme though.

I'd expect a message soon then, what if you click on the 676 days left on the bottom of the AV ?

Mine, too.. but under your username/email at the top of the page, use the drop down and click on "products" and that page on mine it says the key is invalid. Mine also states it's for 2013 in that box, but the product page lists it for 2012.

You're right. This is my list now:

Yep, I just checked and it says that for me too on MyBitDefender! The program's still saying it's valid with 676 days to go, but I've redeemed JZHT7W0 on the MyBitDefender site, and it's given me 365 days of the 2013 version now, so still better than nothing. :)

Oh yeah, 365 free days is still a great deal, I hope torrentthief wasn't thinking I was bashing his generosity!! I replace MSE with this on two of three machines so far and it works great.

Same here, key was listed as invalid. A year free is still nice though :)

yeah, 1 free year is still better than a kick in the teeth :) I'm using the internet security version as i wanted the firewall too.

What's the firewall like? Is it a pain in the butt to use while gaming? As I mentioned earlier, I installed Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 on my younger brother's laptop. Since the 677-day key is invalid, it would make sense to use Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 instead. I'm asking because I currently use ESET Smart Security 6 and I had a couple of issues with some games. I don't want my brother to come across any issues with League of Legends.

i don't know but you could just disable the firewall if you run into problems. There is a silent gaming mode so i presume there will be no messages when you are gaming, give it a shot.

So you guys recommend Bitdefender over ESET 6 for Windows 8? Seems ESET has really dropped the ball lately according to AV-TEST. :o

I found bitdefender to be too aggressive, it seemed to stop PatchMyPC from connecting to the Internet, and excluding the process didn't remedy the problem. Back to Avast. It also removed, without my permission 2 game trainers that were falsely flagged as viruses.
