If your security software is about to expire, or it's just junk, this might help you out.

Thank you very much for sharing this link, compl3x. Admittedly, I've not used Bitdefender before as I've almost always relied on either Avira or Windows Defender for real-time protection (though I have read some good things about the software). The link you posted will allow me to try a version of the software with more functionality for free. I even have a new wallpaper.

Thanks for taking the time to say "thank you".

 

I post stuff like this from time to time adn although the topic gets hundreds of views few people bother to say thanks. No big deal, but it doesn't motivate me to post free, useful stuff I find 'round the web.

I have read good things about Bitdefender as well.  I have never tried it personally & you have to be careful what you read when it comes to A/V comparisons/reviews - there are so many bogus or biased websites out there (www.best-antivirus-2014.com, or www.best-pc-security-2014.com, and all those)

What ?!?!?!?!   McAfee is last ?  OMG !!  (still dont know why intel bought them) & dont know why webroot is never in these comparisons hmmmm :shifty:

For the last 2 1/2 years I have been using webroot's Secure Anywhere & have no reason to change but, for others, its a nice offer (and a nice post compl3x BTW)

I'm undecided on the software personally. It's locked down a little too tight if you're not running an administrator account, which means I can't change most settings. And getting it to whitelist certain folders or files is a pain in the ass.

 

Anyways, thanks for this, I was using the version from the last time a trial like this was posted so I'll see if I can get an upgrade.

Same but then my system's very old so I have to balance good protection vs resources

(so I use eset ss7 now)

No.. I got my key, and in the email, they said the key has to be activated within 30 days of receipt of the key.. After which it would expire.. So you have to use your registerted key within 30 days of registration.. So at max you can expend it for 30 days trail + 9 months..

 

But thats ok for me.. Will be using to to see really how good they are.. My Kaspersky license ran out and I was not keen to buy another year of KIS 2015 for their lack of user control over the application, so its a nice offer for me to try it out for a longer time and go ahead with the purchase if I like it..

Seems you can only get 4 keys from one IP address, before having to resort to something like Tor.

It wouldn't accept the capcha, when trying to get a key via my mobile.

Initial response of the software was fine.. Its My 3rd day with it and my desktop running Windows 7 SP1 x64 seems to have slowed down a little.. The BIS 2015 is taking considerable time to load it self in start up and at times certainly applications are acting up.. Infact, USB copying seems to have effected the most, not only just it has slowed down, but also at times it freezes the Windows explorer..

 

My system config,

 

Intel C2Q Q6600 3.0 GHz (OC)

8GB DDR-III @ 1333 MHz (OC)

Sandisk 32GB SSD

 

Previously with Kaspersky, it was not lagging as with BIS 2015..

 

Disapointed..
