BitDefender Antivirus Free Edition is now Windows 8.1 compatible

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition is an antivirus program designed to be fast and to minimize user interaction, while sacrificing nothing of the malware detection and removal capabilities that Bitdefender products are generally known for. By default, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition scans and cleans your system using only the resources that you, your software or your operating system are not using, thus achieving near-zero impact on your activities. Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition periodically scans all of your files and handles all security-related decisions for you. This means you will see no pop-ups, no alerts and you will not have to configure any settings whatsoever.

These are its main features:

  • Close to zero impact on the system
  • Minimum user interaction required
  • Fewer settings to configure
  • Continuous scanning protection for your system
  • Simple program interface

What's new in this version:

  • fixed Refresh time issues in ThreatControl
  • fixed Access denied for read-only items when trying to Delete all quarantined files
  • Exclude false positives after Quarantine auto-scan
  • Keep blocking of infected mail archives after Quarantine auto-scan
  • Compatibility with Outpost Firewall Pro 8.1 (fixed slow boot)
  • Compatibility with Windows 8.1
