Changing my AV
« on: March 19, 2021, 16:54 »
I've decided to dump my Kaspersky AV as I'm becoming more and more convinced that it's taking over my computer by blocking websites and it will end up being a bot for Vlad's honchos.  I've decided to go with BitDefender on a two year contract in the hope I might regain access to my computer!

It was very easy to do and Bit Defender looks good.

Very much so.  It flashed up a warning regarding regular emails I receive from a website that offers ridiculously cheap deals.  I've been very tempted to buy from them but fortunately I've resisted.   :woot:  Kaspersky has been happy enough with the emails.

How is Bitdefender performing now Clive? Are you still happy with it? Which version are you using?   :)

I'm still happy with it and can let you have a code that will be valid for over 18 months if you would like to try it.

I've just purchased a two year licence for three computers so I will let you know how it goes.  :)

Well I've been running Bitdefender for the last few weeks and it performs really well and is not intrusive at all.

Thank you Clive.    :thumbs:
