Oh my. I recently installed Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 on my brother's laptop with a license key that expires in 677 days. I wonder if he can use this instead for 365 days and use the anti-virus software for the remaining 312 days.

lol, i'm afraid not, when i went to install internet security it asked me whether i wanted to use the 677 day serial or use a new serial. Internet security gives you a nice firewall though: http://www.bitdefender.co.uk/solutions/antivirus-comparison.html

It doesn't. Don't fall into all the hype that a paid AV is better then MSE. It simply isn't true. MSE FTW!

I need a good anti-virus for my machine at home - hope it holds out long enough.

I still use MSE but the product has still fallen behind. Only reason I've remained uninfected is due to the paid version of Maleware-Bytes which actively runs in conjunction with MSE.

You clearly didn't read the 2 antivirus test website reviews otherwise you would see that MSE scores very poorly.

I don't run anything else and my system is clean. MSE just works. I ran BitDefender. Eset and Kaspersky before and something has always found it's way through. ClamWin AV is much better, or used to be, then Eset and other paid AVs also. If MSE wasn't around, I would be using ClamWin.

I don't care what those reviews say. I use what works and MSE does the job.

You're dreaming. MSE isn't as bad as some. And just because a product is paid, doesn't mean it's better. But MSE is not all that great. Sorry to tell you that. I've seen MANY infections that others have caught.

not sure, unfortunately you can't with avira internet security which is what i used until today. I could choose ignore but minutes later it would detect a keygen as a virus again, it was a pain, other than that i liked avira.

Yeah, I just excluded various folders with MSE but was shocked when I couldn't ignore things that were caught but were false positives with Bitdefender Free. But, I have heard good reviews so I'm excited to try this out.

I agree that just because a product is paid for doesn't mean it's better. But since I have been running MSE and now Defender under Win8, I have only had 1 infection and that was ehen MSE was in beta stage.

When I added the key it shows that I have 354 days left on the webpage. But it doesn't show in the actual program.

You shouldn't run two AVs, but I agree. I still suggest MSE as an "At least use this" kind of thing, but it's definitely not as good as it was a year or two ago. Back then it had detection rates with the best of them, now it's definitely towards the mid to bottom of the pack.

I know, and I typically don't otherwise. They just seem to work great in conjunction with each other though without any pre-configuration for this to work.

I may just dump both for BitDefender though, but we'll see I guess. It's gonna be hard to get away from MBAM since it's done such an incredible job over the years.

The Softpedia link in post #1 downloads Antivirus Plus, not Internet Security.
