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

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

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 solution. But it is affecting my PC to slowdown my PC's speed, and sometime download speed down.

Avast Free Antivirus 2017 is good security solution. It is having strong protection from malware: reviewed that "5 / 5 stars" by AV-TEST. And it is the most light soft between these soft. But I think that it is not able to reach the best solution as anti-malware soft. It is not "the best software", only "good software".

I don't worry whether Original Firewall feature is included to anti-malware soft, or not. I will use Windows Default Firewall as firewall.

Please teach me about avobe my opinion and your recommend software.
Thank you very much!

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.

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?

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

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

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 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.

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

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?

After eliminating other free products (Avast, too many false-positives and nags; AVG, poor detection and lousy performance; Avira, nags; Qihoo, way too many false-positives), I'm down to two.

Bitdefender stepped up its free product but Panda is still touting their performance from 2 years ago and fell off the testing lab reports.

How do the two compare in regards to:

Detection rates
Low-performance impact
Reasonable false-positives, should be rare
NO nags. Zero. Nada. None. Zilch.
NO forcing browser changes (search engines, homepages) or toolbars
Gaming compatibility
Additional attack surface coverage

This is for my (and wife's) Windows 10 machines. I'm looking for the lesser overhead/hassle product for the desktops, laptop, and Surface and the better mitigator for the sheep-dip virtual machine.

Thanks in advance for any input!
 

Answer:Bitdefender Free vs. Panda Free (2017)

I'd recommend Bitdefender free, this is coming from the blocking side of things. Bitdefender seems to be more lenient in terms of blocking IP's and sites so connections to servers and such should be better and non intrusive.

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?
Thanks
 

Answer:Bitdefender Internet Security 2017 with SpyShelter Firewall installed

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.

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:Bitdefender 2017 final is here

Wow, I was a long time Bitdefender user and this looks tempting.

Before i used Avast on Windows 7. But today i upgraded my system to Windows 10. I am very undecided that which one i must use on Windows 10. Is Windows Defender enough to protect my computer?

Sorry for my english.

Thank you in advance.

Answer:2017: Avast Free vs Windows Defender (Windows 10)

If you had avast before, you are used to it, and this does not slow down your PC, go for it. Defender in W10 is quite good, but Avast well tweaked (you have lot of posts in MalwareTips) will offer you a very good protection.

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
FACEBOOK
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

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?
Thanks
 

Answer:Bitdefender IS 2017 with SpyShelter Firewall installed

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.

I'm a former Bitdefender Internet Security user. Looking to experiment with other products. I want to know what is the best choice for my Windows 10 lap. I don't want my machine to get slow but need enough protection. Also, need to mention that I plug my lap to my office network so need protection from others possibly infected machines in the network.
 

Answer:Avast Free + Windows 10 Firewall vs Bitdefender Internet Security

I believe it is not a correct comparison between free and paid products.
BIS is a great security suite, all in one, effective and very configurable but a bit heavy on the system.
Avast is one of the best free AV, and if it is configured in hardened mode (aggressive), it provides very solid protection.
The Windows firewall does its good job, even if it is not easily configurable, but you can use third-party applications like Windows Firewall Control or Glasswire, to better manage it.

Hi there

Before you BUY Windows 10 note :

The FREE update from W7 to W10 is STILL working. (13 May 2017). Just done one and finished at 12.40 local time today.

1) download the media creation tool.
2) from within W7 run the setup
3) all done - and you'll see you have a digital license.

Note W7 must be activated BEFORE you start and do the updates.

W7 Ultimate / PRO to W10 Pro, Home to Home.

Probably works for W8 / W8.1 too but I don't have any systems running those.

Just to remind people -- check out before Paying - if you are running W7 / W8 / W8.1

(Backup old OS first in case the upgrade gets hosed up or youwant to go back).

Cheers
jimbo

As some of us know you can still get Win 10 free using the accessibility install which will activate with most (all i have done) Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 keys.

If you do still want to get Windows 10 for free, get it soon

https://www.engadget.com/2017/11/04...10-promo-on-december-31st/?sr_source=Facebook

Microsoft largely stopped offering free Windows 10 upgrades back in July 2016. However, there's been an ongoing exception: if you use accessibility features, you've had an extension of that promo. And now, that last deal is coming to an end. Microsoft has quietly updated its site to reveal that free upgrades for those who need assistive technologies will end on December 31st, 2017. The company hasn't directly explained the timing for the cutoff, but the extension was announced to give extra time to users who had to wait for the July 2016 Anniversary Update before they got promised accessibility features. Given that there have been numerous milestone updates since then, there's a good chance you've already moved to Windows 10 if you were holding out.Click to expand...

I've been using AVG Free Edition for a few years but the latest version gives me probs installing
and when it is installed the GUI is different and stupid. My last installed version included Zen/Anti-virus
but after uninstalling (wasn't an easy task) I can't even find a similar version or even this same version.
So, the heck with this and I installed Avast Free and it works like a charm.
Now I see Avast purchased AVG and keep both programs separate. But they haven't done that and I've
seen some components of AVG used in Avast if it is a certain version.
The only negative I see with my Avast is the high impact startup time but I can live with that.
I used to be a very strong advocate for McAfee until it became like Norton and so bloated.
This is mostly FYI so don't bust my balls for using free stuff as that is everything I have other than
the Windows 10 program. Actually it was free also upgrading from W7 to W10 and its stable as a rock.

Answer:AVG Free Edition 2017 Installation

For the record, AVG bought Avast, not the other way around.
I used to uncheck linkscanner from install, but I see, it is mandatory now.
You should uncheck junk modules afterwards, like linkscanner and email scanner.
If you try Avast, you should use Minimal Setup and then do those things afterwards:

Disable Cyber Capture & Reputation Services & Sharing Personal Info / Enable PUP, Hardened & Silent Mode / Set popups to 1 sec

Results: Editor rating: excellent
Pros:
Tough, effective two-way firewall. Antivirus protection licensed from Kaspersky. Free. Several useful bonus features.

Cons
Hardly any results from independent testing labs. Doesn't include every feature of Kaspersky antivirus. No phishing protection. Behavioral detection flagged both good and bad programs.

Bottom Line
ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus+ combines a top-notch firewall with antivirus protection licensed from award-winning Kaspersky. This free program can be a good choice if you don't want a full-scale security suite.

I am really impressed so far.! I went to GRC & ran a port scan & found that ALL ports were in full stealth mode...wow.! Emsisoft's firewall appears to be very good compared to Windows firewall. The Behavior Blocker appears to block a lot of Trash as well. I am on a 30 day trial. Anyone know where I can get a discount coupon as the 50 buck price is kind of steep for a gal on a tight budget.? Let me know what your thoughts are on Emsisoft.

Answer:Rizki's 2017 My security config

Enable Smartscreen, it is very important.
Probably do you mean Bitdefender in real-time protection and Malwarebytes as on demand scanner?

I use a VPN 24\7. It is IVPN which uses an always-on firewall and multi-hop options. I don't use a VPN for privacy or anonymity, but instead to ensure encrypted network traffic. If need be, I Tor through the VPN.

I have multiple personal and test machines. The security configuration shown above is representative of what is typically installed on both my personal and test machines. Depending upon what and how I am testing, sometimes I will substitute SpyShelter Firewall for Windows Firewall Control. If I have need of an antivirus\internet security suite for a particular project or set of circumstances, generally I will install either Webroot or Emsisoft. For my most-used personal system, the above security configuration is its current one.

I test malware on a host PC using Rollback RX Pro in a malware lab. This is to eliminate any virtual machine introduced anomalies into the testing and results. This test methodology is not recommended for the home-tester. Anyone else should not employ this test methodology; use a virtual machine instead.

Answer:fredsarran Security Configuration (2017)

Suggestions:

Set UAC to Always Notify
Having three real-time solutions is unnecessary and a drain on resources. I'd suggest picking either Zemana or Malwarebytes to run alongside Bitdefender and use the other one as an on-demand scanner
Add HTTPS Everywhere to your browser(s)

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?

I do not understand the delay. Does anyone know what is going on?
Is there a workaround to force the installation of the new gui?
