Bitdefender Total Security 2017 vs Kaspersky Internet Security 2017

Question: Bitdefender Total Security 2017 vs Kaspersky Internet Security 2017

Hello,
On my Windows 10 pro PC, I'm running (BDTS 2017 + Voodoo Shield Pro + Malwarebytes 3), and this combo is very smooth for me, but when I saw the results of MT tests here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Bitdefender Report - March 2017 and here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Kaspersky Report - March 2017, I think that these tests demonstrated that Kaspersky did a better job then Bitdefender
So my question is to know if it is a good idea to replace BD by KIS on my config ?
Thanks
NB: I have paid keys for both

Preferred Solution: Bitdefender Total Security 2017 vs Kaspersky Internet Security 2017

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hi guys. New bitdefender 2017 Total Security user here (just bought a 3 year license for the family plan). After using it i do have some questions:

1. I've been trying to figure out the autopilot thing. From bitdefenders site:
What is Autopilot mode?

Antivirus protection, provided by on-access scanning and continuous scanning.
What is "continous scanning" exactly? Do you still need to schedule quick/full scans of your entire system manually or will bit defenders "auto pilot" do that automatically at the times it determines are best? I of course occasionally want both to run and don't want just on-demand scanning and hoping autopilot will take care of everything for me rather than having to configure it on a bunch of computers.

2. Is there any way to determine when the last full / quick scan was done. I don't want to have to scroll through the notification area which is quite busy. Is there some type of scan log area? I couldn't find it.

3. Is there any threads with best practices on settings of bitdefender or are the defaults pretty good? I found a great one on kaspersky. Of course i don't want to affect system performance to much.

One of the small things i don't like about bitdefender so far is it just tells you "up to date". It doesn't tell you the date or version of the definitions you have (which most products do).
 

Answer:Some misc Bitdefender 2017 Total Security questions

Autopilot is basically a marketing term. There are products who have a standard HIPS which asks you block/allow questions on detection of potentially dangerous actions. Then there are ones which have algorithms and correlate different detected actions against a threshold and if it is deemed too much suspicious program is blocked. However Bitdefender is not the only one which works that way. But autoscan is just what is says it is - automatic updates, automatic on-demand scans, automatic actions against detected malware with no questions. I'm not using Bitdefender but I do have an idea of what it's settings looked like. The only thing that you might want to check is the ransomware protection for settings you might want to change/add important folders etc. Not sure of the 2017 interface but you should be able to filter the logs by some select dropdown menus. For your third question the most important thing is to use brain.exe.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Windows 10 64 Pro Anniversary Build Latest Update
Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 Latest Update
No other RealTime security software.

My portable programs SecurMyBit, VidCoder, etc... were under "Low Restricted" in Application Control.
I move them to "Trusted" in AC.
After couple of days, the programs rules are neither in "Trusted" or "Low Restricted".
When I run the programs, they appear under "Low Restricted" And I again move them to "Trusted" But after couple of days the same mentioned above i.e the programs rules are neither in "Trusted" or "Low Restricted".

Is it a bug or bug on Windows 10 64 or bug in KIS 2017 or ............?

Any info?

Any Kaspersky users experience the above?
 

Answer:Kaspersky Application Control - Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 bug?

Yes, this happens & not only in 2017 but in earlier versions as well.

I experience it as well, but not quite often as you are. Mine comes when i am disconnected from internet for a while & then connect again, then (i guess) KSN checks the app control rules again & places them (apps) as described in the KSN rule-set.

The problem come from the setting 'Load rule for applications from KSN' in application control, which is enabled by default.

This shouldn't be a problem if you are using default settings (Auto-mode) as Low restricted is basically Trusted in auto-mode. But if you use interactive mode, this causes a lot of prompts which can be quite annoying.

you dont need to pair KIS with MBAM and you dont need MBAE also because kaspersky already has anti-exploit feature and it works
the only thing I think MBAM is better than KIS is anti-PUP. KIS is not really good at this I think but now it is improved not sure if this is still applied anymore
KIS 2017 is compatible with HMPA, now patch B is already out so compatibility with windows 10 and other softwares should be improved

Hello,

On my PC I have installed Bitdefender Internet Security 2017 plus SpyShelter Firewall. Besides of very rare BSOD, I have another strange problems: I can't go to certain website in particular. The other website are opened normally, without issues. I noticed that just as the computer starts with the processes of BD and SpyShelter, and for the first 10/15 minutes, I didn't have problems, but passed this amount of time, here are the problems. I get specifically this two type of error: "Unable to load the page" and "Unable to reach the page". The problems happen on all the browsers installed on the PC. My PC has Windows 10 64-bit, I am on the latest build of AU (14393.479). In addition to this, sometimes my browser for open a webpage, it requires a lot of time, and I have to reboot the PC to get Internet working again. At this point, I don?t understand what is the cause to these problem. Can you help me?

It could be a conflict between two, you already have bit is, with firewall, you dont need more firewall programs like spyshelter firewall, try to delete spyshelter to see if there is any better.

Installed KIS 2017 17.0.0.611(b) twice on my Windows 10 x64 Pro OS and can reproduce the issue.

When I enable TAM, opening programs is very slow at first (15 secs or so). Disable TAM, everything opens fast.
Any ideas?

What I've tried:

1. Run full scan
2. Opened programs and hoped they would be cached in KIS (speed increased a little on second open, but still noticable)
3. Restarted PC
4. Uninstalled via Programs and Features and re-installed
 

Answer:Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 Bug in TAM (opens programs slow)?

I noticed that, too, when I was still using KIS 2016/2017.

Do you have a fast internet connection? My guess is that TAM wants to get the file information from KSN. And so, it delays the file execution, until it gets the information from KSN. But I know that it shouldn't take that long, as KSN is used even when TAM is disabled.

What really prompted me to disable TAM was blocking a trusted file when internet connection is off or flaky. For instance, Pale Moon is trusted, but when there's no internet connection, its components (e.g. .dll) are blocked by TAM, making Pale Moon not to work properly. I guess this just occurs to my laptop, as no one reports similar, so far.

@harlan4096 can help you with that.

Answer:Emsisoft Internet Security vs Kaspersky Internet Security 2017

Emsisoft internet Security 2017 (only short test)

Good and simple interface, a little heavy on my PC, at startup you lose 2 -3 seconds at the most , for the rest, the system reports 200/300 MB RAM, the updates are every hour, good scan, which uses 2 engines, good firewall, good static detection and excellent BB.
(I use EAM for a long time.)

Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 (only short test)

I have quickly tested it on a spare computer a short time ago, but lets say: very clean UI, light on the system, it has many functions that may turn up the noses at the less experienced users but really good. After the installation, the next reboot was quite fast, good scan speed and great malware detection.
No idea about BB and firewall, but I'm sure very good as the rest of the software.

First, thank you for your reading.
I want to ask you about the better setting for building secure PC on Windows 10 as a consumer.

I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as the main anti-malware software and firewall software on my PC. It looks good.

But at sometimes, Bitdefender is heavy a little, especially when updating signatures.
And booting time of my PC is long. Updating time at start up Windows is also long. I think it.

So I seaching another security softwares for my PC, and I find some softwares which I guess that it is good for using PC. The soft is Avast Free 2016, and Microsoft EMET or Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free Edition.

~Q.1~
Which is better, Avast Free 2016 or Bitdefender Security 2017. I will use EMET or MBAE for covering protection of vulnerability when I use Avast Free.

~Q.2~
What is Bitdefender and Avast Free regarded as security software for Windows 10 Consumers?
Which software do many people regard as a good solution?
I heard that Bitdefender is getting very high level score in many tests, but it is heavy for many PC.
And I aloso heard that Latest Avast Free gives security enough for many consumers, but sometimes do false detection, and it may be serious for OS at sometimes.
Please teach me about above things. I guess my English is not well, but I will read all replies from everyone. If I will be late replyng you. excuse me.

Thank you!

Hi

I wonder what kind of settings can be put on this or the features that can be disabled to keep it running smoothly.

I keep installing and uninstalling this software. It slows my web browsing, makes firefox almost unusable.

My setup is a i5 6 GB laptop.

I bought 3 licenses for kis total 2016 during this march. It seems like all will go to waste lol.

I got 2 unused licenses for total security. If anybody is interested in trading for another security product, let me know. I can provide you with the purchase screenshot or proof.

I need some good choices all of these Internet Security Suites are good. A few of them use multiple antivirus engines.
 

Answer:Best Internet Security Software 2017

You could not go wrong with any of them in my opinion.
Emsisoft and GData have both Bitdefender and their own engine and a very strong behaviour blocker. Personally one of those two would be my choice. In terms of GUI, I think Emsisoft would be a bit easier to configure than GData I guess.
I haven't tried Trustport and Dr Web myself, but tests on the forum/malware hub also give them good scores.
Just try a few of them and see which one suits you the best

I have read several recent articles that McAfee has revamped its IS with a new GUI employing new detection technology.

However, whenever I attempt to install it on one of my PC's, being that I have a 4 year license, the old version with the green border still appears.

For months, McAfee keeps saying they are gradually rolling it out. So far months have past, and nothing has changed.

Is it because the new version is too buggy?

Despite that Bitdefender is known to consume lots of RAM, nearing 800MB when scanning is too much. I would assume it's a bug or memory leak.

Hi all,

I'm currently looking for a very good Internet Suite solution.

I've been reading through several topics and most of the opinions mention these two as excellent overall performers.

I want a good suite that has both av and firewall, excellent protection overall, minimal system impact, reliable (not unstable) and doesn't get in my way since I'll be installing this on three separate Windows 10 PCs: a workstation, gaming desktop and laptop.

It's between EIS and KIS latest and greatest but any other suggestion that fills the requirements are welcome.

Thanks a lot!

Hello to all,

I by myself am an EmsiSoft user and after that I want to clarify the System in question is not mine!!!

1st - The User is not Computer-lyric this means NO real understanding and training on how to properly use the Internet and what to be aware of!

2nd - It could be that the System was already Infected before EmsiSoft IS 2017 install!

3rd - Lets get it on...

The Scenario:

User wants to use the Battle.net Launcher and after inputting the credentials the standard browser opens plus over a hundred tabs that got blocked by Adblock and NoScript! (Firefox) - No reaction from EmsiSoft IS 2017!!!

What does the User do? He Scanned his System for Malware with EmsiSoft with no detection and Hitman Pro also with no detection at all!

After that coz User is in panic! Comes to me...

System in Question:

OS: Windows 10 64bit - Active Lic. - Up-to-Date
AV: EmsiSoft Internet Security 2017
OnDemand Scanner: HitMan Pro - Current Version
UAC: Deactivated

My Steps:

1. DeepScan with EmsiSoft IS = No Detection
2. HitMan Pro EWS Scan = No Detection
3. Malwarebytes ADW Cleaner = Allot of malicious Reg. Entry's but none corresponding to that scenario
4. Zemana AntiMalware = Detection Fake Root Certificates that Hooked to Battle.net

F-Secure Internet Security 2017 Review by PCMag 3,5/5 stars​
Pros
Excellent scores in our hands-on malware and malicious URL blocking tests. Firewall-assist component blocked many exploits. Banking protection prevents man-in-the-middle attacks.

Cons
Core functionality vulnerable to malicious attack. Child with administrator privileges can disable minimal parental control. Mediocre score in our antiphishing test. Good, not great, scores from independent testing labs.

Bottom Line
The antivirus components of F-Secure Internet Security scored high in our testing, aided by the suite-specific Browsing Protection features. However, the rest of its components don't make up a top-notch suite.

Answer:F-Secure Internet Security 2017 Review by PCMag 3,5/5 stars

F-Secure is definitely not the best Internet Security Suite available for the price. It does ok but not the best in terms of detection rates & has very little extra features. I am not a big fan of the GUI or settings either but that's just me.

Hi

...now totally confused about which to use, or which ist the best deal for the money?
Right now i am using the trial version from Zone Alarm Internet Security,i like it - but it really slows my system down. I was also thinking about Bitdefender total security...since they offer a 30 day free trial version, or Internet Security Software 08.
I do like the idea of having a Security Suite, its kind of all in one , and i don"t have to hassle with x amount of programs ( still somewhat of a beginner).
I have read many ratings and reviews... just to confuse me more...seems as though depending on what webside you are looking (c/net, or pc world, or computer world...) each has its own favorite.

Can anyone help out?

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Zone Alarm Security Suite versus Bitdefender Total Security

Howdy AstridG James,
I have been using Zone Alarm Security Suite for a couple of years now and find it very good. I also have SpywareBlaster,Ad-Aware 2007 Pro, Spybot Search n Destroy 1.5 and WinPatrol.All the programmes seem to be needed to find different things and although Zone Alarm seems to stop most and is a gr8 AV....never had any problems with it at all...the other programmes still find different things and all work well together.

Hi, really sorry if this is the wrong place or the wrong kind of forum to ask these kind of questions (alot of you guys seem like pros haha)

My Kaspersky AV licence is up and i'm looking at buying Total Security for another year and saw on Kaspersky website this new software they are calling Kaspersky Security cloud. The page for my knowledge is a little vague and it just looks kind of like Total Security repackaged.

Is there any crucial differences in KTS and this new Security cloud that would benefit me buying that instead?

Thanks for your time
 

Answer:Kaspersky Total Security or Kaspersky Security Cloud

Are you referring to Endpoint Security Cloud? If so it's for business customers only. If you're referring to something else could you please link to it.

If you're happy with KTS then I see no reason why you shouldn't renew it.

Acrylic DNS and uBlock gets rid of all advertisements that lead to malware, and a strict popup blocker to prevent popunders.

Emsisoft is proud to announce our new build with the Firewall Fortification feature:

As announced earlier, we are changing our firewall strategy and will soon merge Emsisoft Internet Security with Emsisoft Anti-Malware, effective as of our next release in October. Instead of developing our own firewall module, we?re going to rely on the built-in Windows Firewall core that has proven to be powerful and reliable. Its only weak point is the fact that anyone can freely change the firewall configuration. In other words, if malware manages to run on the PC with sufficient administrator permissions, it?s able to allow itself to get through the firewall.

To resolve this vulnerability, we?ve developed a new Firewall Fortification feature for Emsisoft Anti-Malware?s Behavior Blocker as part of our 2017.8 release. Firewall Fortification detects and intercepts malicious actions from non-trustworthy programs in real time before they can cause any damage.Click to expand...

Very minimal security configuration that takes up 1% of CPU while idle and less than 50MB of RAM. Layered defense using software and built-in Windows security hardening.

Network Protection Layers
----
Windows Firewall set to block all incoming connections regardless of whitelisting.
Webroot Firewall set to block all unknown connections.
DNSCrypt with OpenDNS

Web Protection Layers
----
Webroot Web Filtering (Blocks 96% of all phishing attempts, very powerful, but lackluster malware detection.)
uBlock Origin Filters (Blocks all malvertising attempts, some malware links.)
Google Safe Browsing (Blocks some malware and phishing attacks, last resort, not very effective.)
OpenDNS phishing and malware protection.

File Protection Layers
----
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Good malware detection, rollback features, usually not intrusive.)
SBGuard AntiRansomware (Blocks all non-administrative executables everywhere except on Desktop and external drivers, very powerful and prevents malware from running that Webroot doesn't catch.)
chml.exe (Permissions tool used to set integrity levels. Configured properly, it stops most applications from modifying or reading any files in Documents, Music, Videos, or Pictures. Stops spyware and some Ransomware.)

Endpoint Protection Layers

Password-protected local account (locks out after every 5 attempts for 5 minutes.)
Bitlocker w/ 256-bit XTS AES encryption.
Prey Anti-Theft
A fake local account named "Admin" that when logged ... Read more

Recently was using Bitdefender Total security 2017, but after continual crashes, I went hunting for a new security setup. This led me to this amazing site, which I have spent quite a bit of time browsing over the past 2 weeks. This has led to the above configuration.
Regarding backup, I have all relevant personal files in dropbox, with backups to local NAS and the acronis cloud. In case of critical failure i have a usb with windows 10 recovery drive.
KIS 17 with @Jack settings

Any areas for improvement?

Security Setup of my gaming desktop I custom built. Since its only used for Steam and some light web browsing I have no need for extreme security other than a ad blocker for the web. Windows Defender has improved even more as well in the latest Creators Update for Windows 10. I know it is a simple unobtrusive setup with little in terms of fail safes, but that is what my brain is for and I have no worry of being infected.

Hello!
I've been using this combination for a long time and I haven't got any viruses at all. Windows Updates are disabled but I still install some important security updates. I don't have any important documents on my PC so data backups are made only when I make some modifications. All not important data are uploaded to cloud. System Image Backups are created every month using Windows default backup tool and that's about it.
