    beckyblind – BitDefender, along with many other protection programs offer a certain amount of security, but….there is no 100% security solution, therefore a layered approach works better.
    Many security applications can take several days, or weeks, to come up with a solution to stop the onslaught of trojans and other malware that evolves each and every day. BitDefender is not a very complex antivirus, and for malware offers little defense 🙂

    it’s a very interesting program but i’m using BitDefender and i had no problems, i guess a lot of security solution know about those threats and covers them.Mine is a very complex anti virus and i m sure i’m very protected.

    Doug – Spybot has to be one of the all time favourites which many users still haven’t got around to installing. It’s Hosts file does a superb job and CCleaner is an amazing utility.
    Have a great day,
