not for me however its free so i am hot
I stuck with kaspersky after the stories of links to the Kremlin but BD has been hammering kaspersky for some time so I decide to change even though I have 6 months on my existing kaspersky license. The unlimited device Family edition swung it for me.

Each to their own but what data do you have to backup up your statement of "kaspersky all the way"? Here's mine....

That's because some countries didn't like what Kaspersky found out. State sponsored virus like Stuxnet.

Anyone can spy on you, kaspersky antivirus is nothing to do with that...
Great! Just what I was after!
Bitdefender came out top in the recent Which? tests. Kaspersky didn't. Which? particularly praised Bitdefender's defence against ransom ware.
Thanks

I just grabbed what was on the webpage, but like I said, can you show us all some tests results that back-up your statement? I don't have an axe to grind as I stuck with Kaspersky for a long time and I would happily switch back (or to a different product) if Bitdefender stopped coming out on top.
Edited by: "tommyturnip" 8th Aug 2018
I switched from Kaspersky to Bitdefender when Barclays stopped giving it away free due to the potential security issues with Kaspersky. Not had any problems with Bitdefender and glad I chose it at the time out of all those available.

I just looked at the test report on AVTest, the reason why AVG is "in the top 3" is because the list is sorted alphabetically, so it is 3rd after Ahnlab and Avast - you should really take time to read and understand things before firing off misleading statements. If you sort on performance you will find that there are 13 products ranked higher than AVG!

In the interests of fairness, there are 3 products that score perfect 6's, Kaspersky, McAfee and Avira - BD scores slightly lower as they have dropped 0.5 on Useability but that's subjective I guess as I find sllicker to use.

Do you have to give any financial details for them to charge when the 6 months run out?

Tried to migrate to this and had no security cover as it wouldnt work. "Customer service" was an oxymoron - so voting icy.

Said "couldn't install Bitdefender, you need a CPU of at least 1500 MHZ for it to run properly, or risk system slow down or product malfunction"...so I'll think of another option when my Kaspersky runs out in 15 days
Bitdefender support and renewal practices are a joke.

I prefer Kasperksy as well - it jus works and works well - and I've probably tried all the AVs at some point or another.

Try Kaspersky Free. Doesn't have all the bells and whistles of Kaspersky Pure but it still uses the same AV engine.

Norton's source code got leaked in 2012 so I don't think that's safe.

Said that to me as well but I installed anyway. I haven't noticed any slowdown and my cpu is way below 1500MHZ.

Better not let Symantec hear any of that?.

What, with allllllll the money they invested in Peter Norton almost 20 Year's back?.

I used to initially like the Norton AV + the Norton Internet Security stuff's too ... (after Norton AV somehow was able top the Dr Solomon brand of AV + Security product's that came wayyyyyy before it?!.

(Only to later then learn that a then relatively still yet unknown at the time AV Company in the form of McAfee had come out of nowhere with some serious fund's and bought Dr Solomon out).

It's funny how the 'cycle of time' sometimes work's like ...
I only once in my life purchased antivirus software for real money and it was norton symantec, I got virus and lost everything on my pc because of that! So now I never purchase any of king antivirus for real money because in 15 years time I never had any problems like with licensed software!!! Rubbish keep away from Norton

Sorry to hear, and fair enough ...

"I only once in my life purchased antivirus software for real money".

I take it that you were formally pretty much only rocking free AV Software then?, or ...

Which one/one's did you formally use that you rather found useful, and/or sufficiently better or superior instead, etc, etc, etc?, thanx.

Perfect timing. Big thanks OP.
Avast was starting to drive me bonkers with its upgrade rubbish all the time. This is great thank you
