Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2012 Detailed Review

I have been using the Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2012 from over a week now and I will share some of my experience and features of the antivirus with you. First of all, I used the web installer to install the antivirus which is a very small installer which can be easily downloaded form Bitdefender website here. The antivirus is available with a 30 days free trial after which you need to purchase a key (License code) for activation, you can win one key from us in this giveaway contest.

I like all the features of BitDefender Antivirus Plus 2012. As an antivirus solution only, it has plenty of features that are not present in any other antivirus products. For me, it is more than complete as an antivirus solution only.

I like the AutoPilot mode which offers silent security. Also it has the best antiphishing protection. One extra thing I would like in this product is online secure backup which Norton offers in its 360 range of products.
