Preferred Solution: Bitdefender 2015 Beta Version

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.)

Heh, excited for this one! Been using IS 2014 for some time now. Subscribed.

i confiused what i should use antivirus bitdefender or eset or panda is??? i using window 7 32 bit ram 2gb..intel pentium
 

Answer:Bitdefender IS 2015 vs ESET Smart Security vs Panda IS 2015

ESS is overall winner imo. why?
* It's CPU usage is 0% in my system most of time. I'm using ESS 9 beta so mine takes 100+ MB ram but it will take less ram then it in stable version. Ram is not the issue here coz AV who use ram r better then who use page file to hide their actual ram. Ram is faster then HD.
*System impact is very less on almost every system i feel like feather in my system but it depends wut system u r using. If u r using dinosaur age system like atom processor with 1 GB ram & slow HD then it ESS will feel u slower. No slow boot time issue not even when doing gaming or multitasking.
*User interface is good & can be understandable but it's ' more ' friendly to whom who knows how to configure it. If u r a newbie with no knowledge how to configure it then u can be in trouble. Check for guru guidance of ESS

*U maybe know that no security tool gives u 100% protection but ESET always gives u a better protection coz of it's latest 0 day malware threat detection/good web threat protection/smart real time protection/better HIPS & firewall protection then window firewall/ very good at detecting PUP infections. It's BB is not good as EAM but u can be usre it will give u a good level protection.

Hello and good day to all!

Just have a question for anyone that could possibly help me out a bit, I am in the process of putting Windows 7 on Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104 laptop with an AMD E-300 APU @ 1.3GHz and 4Gb RAM, and was curious as to which IS software would have the laptop running better with its slower CPU speed. I have heard mixed views on Kaspersky IS using a lot of resources and slowly a system down, but I have not run into that myself, granted my systems with it are custom builds with at least an i5 and 8Gb RAM.

But another thing to add is that this laptop is a coworker whom is not too knowledgeable when it comes to popups to allow a program through a firewall, or about any malware popups, so any popup heavy programs I am not looking to throw on here. He is just a standard web surfer and user of ebay and craigslist, so I am just looking to be sure he is good to go for a while.

Anyone's views on this are appreciated.
 

Answer:Question Kaspersky IS 2015 or BitDefender IS 2015 on a laptop?

ben using Kaspersky very long time on my different 'putters w/no problems, it uses lot of resources for protection (if its set up right) I'll keep it 4 ever. never had a virus get thru

Today we again released 2 beta versions in order to test a new mechanism that will allow to avoid some compatibility issues in the future. For this beta testing we set the rule that machines with Windows XP will be able to update only to version 2230, all other machines will update as usual to the latest version 2231.

We won't limit XP users in the future. This is just for testing purposes.

Changes:
- fixed problem with update condition for Windows XP users. Now users with XP shouldn't be able to install/update to build 2231 (NEW: AVAST 2015 R4 Beta 3(2015.10.4.2229))
- fixed issues with Outlook 2003 context menu (Outlook 2003 issues with new release)
- fixed crashing of service during VPS update ([2227/2228 BUG] Strange behaviour with manual VPS update)

1. If you have installed some beta version before you can update it to this latest version via Settings->Update->Program.

Hi all,
it's Friday afternoon, I'm excited to inform you about AVAST 2015 Beta2 (build number 10.0.2200).
As you can see, the UI hasn't changed a lot, but internally we are delivering you a lot of new for this new major version of AVAST.

In AVAST 2015 Beta2, we are introducing two completely new features:

? AVAST NG
A hardware based virtualization solution capable of running each Windows process in standalone safe virtualized environment (VM) and fully integrated to your desktop. Each process is executed in its own instance of VM, which means totally isolated from your other applications. This project is going to replace current avast! DeepScreen, Sandbox and SafeZone components resulting in better scanning of unknown programs. NG is also great as isolated test space for testing new programs without influencing the main live system.

note: Avast! NG can be installed only on physical machine, does not work in VM. It requires HW virtualization enabled.

? GrimeFighter Free
GrimeFighter will offer free cleaning of junk files and tuning of system settings. These tasks are performed by our Zilch and Torque minions. Other minion functions remain as paid-for features.

Features introduced in AVAST 2015 beta1:

? HTTPS scanning
Now, we are able to detect and decrypt TLS/SSL protected traffic in our Web-content filtering component. We are using our own generated certificates that are added into the Root Certificate store in Windows and also into major browsers. ... Read more

Power to the People

Your comments and suggestions have helped create one of the most exciting new versions in recent years. Over the years WinPatrol had grown with the ability to detect a large range of internal changes within Windows. In the process, WinPatrol lost its easy to use feel that encouraged you to tell your friends and family to download our program. Version 29, built on your feedback, returns WinPatrol to it's roots and will have you blogging and tweeting by the end of the week.

One complaint I've heard, especially from new users, is the volume of alert messages when there is a new program install or malware attack. Over the years, the number of critical locations monitored by WinPatrol has grown but it?s also source of frustration. While everyone appreciates WinPatrol alerting them to an infiltration, the number of locations we reveal combined with numerous malware pop ups is overwhelming.

Installing a legitimate program will typically cause new entries in the Startup Programs, an IE Helper or two and multiple Services. A malware attack may create 10 times the changes all generating individual warnings from WinPatrol. Instead of having to respond to each change most of us would rather just have everything fixed with a single action. That?s WinPatrol v29.

The new version will save users from as much frustration as possible and includes new options when unexpected changes occur. Based on a single user response, WinPatrol will evaluate a response ... Read more

Everything worked perfect until you install BitDefender.

And send an email to technical service of BitDefender to correct this fault 2 months ago and still the same.

BitDefender bad.

Only happens with this Bitdefender AV and tried AVG, ESET, BULGUARD, AND PANDA Emisoft All right.

I am a big fan of Bitdefender security product,but currently I find some bug on there latest product on my windows7 PC.
I am using bitdefender total security 2015 latest build.
The bugs are ,
1.You can not scan a particular drive or volume by check marking that volume or drive and remain system drive unchecked from custom scan,when you do so bitdefender started to scan system drive except that volume or drive.There is no problem in contex menu scan option but contex menu scan does not scan for rootkits.
2.When you do a custom scan selecting all of your volume (you must have atleast 2 partition on your harddrive otherwise the problem not occurs) and keep scan setting in aggressive and start scan ,you will see after some time (in my case at 97% of scan) bitdefender scanner will crash and its services are stoped rsponding.

Please check and verify the problem and give me reply.

Malicious URL Blocking
Thanks to a real-time feed supplied by MRG-Effitas, I have access to a continually updated list of malicious URLs. I use these to check how each antivirus product handles extremely new threats. Does it block access to the URL, wipe out the downloaded malware, or just sit there doing nothing?

Bitdefender completely blocked access to 18 percent of the live malicious URLs I used for testing, but didn't wipe out any of the downloads that got through. It might well have caught those on launch, but that's not what this test measures. I've run two dozen products through this test so far, each with URLs no more than four hours old. The average protection rate is 33 percent, almost twice what Bitdefender managed. I'll be interested to see how Norton AntiVirus (2014) and Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (2014) do when it's their turn for this test.

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 Malware Blocking Chart

Good Malware Blocking
I rely more and more on the independent labs for in-depth antivirus testing, but I always need to do my own hands-on testing, to get a feel for the product's protection. To start, I opened a folder containing my just-gathered new set of malware samples. Bitdefender quickly and quietly wiped out 83 percent of those samples.

Next I launched the remaining samples and noted the antivirus's reaction. It completely missed several, ending up with an overall detection rate of 86 percent and an overall score of 8.... Read more

Four months ago we reviewed Bitdefender Internet Security 2014. The developer has just released the 2015 version of the antivirus application, bringing in new features and improvements concerning usability. We had the opportunity to take a look at the new product a bit early and evaluate it for ourselves.
NOTE: Bitdefender Internet Security 2015 was tested on 64-bit Windows 8.1 Pro.

Performance results
A collection of 8,502 virus samples was submitted to the test, in order to verify Bitdefender's threat detection ratio. The test machine was an Intel Core i5-3470 @CPU 3.20GHz with 12GB RAM and 500GB Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 7200RPM, running Windows 8.1 Pro. Default settings were applied. The collection did not include zero-day threats.The real-time guard was excellent! As soon as we triggered the extraction procedure of the 8,502 virus samples from the password-protected archive, Bitdefender immediately picked up on it and started eliminating files while remaining completely silent (no kind of notifications were shown). In the end, it left behind only 225 files.

In the next step, we proceeded with a contextual scan to find out whether the tool was capable of detecting and removing more files, and we were right. It detected and eliminated 207 extra files, leaving behind only 30 items. Overall, Bitdefender had a success rate of 99.6%.

In order to evaluate the app's scan speed, we ran a system scan (the primary drive had 156GB occupied space). Default settings ... Read more

It has 10+ exe files in the program folder so I'm not going to go through and try all of them to see which one open up the program.

During the upgrade Windows should have removed any A/V to avoid conflict; I'd uninstall BD (if you can), reboot and reinstall.

Post the strength and weaknesses of Bitdefender 2015 that you know

Pros : User friendly. Easy to use. very good malware detection rate, Good malicious & phishing website detection rate,Proactive successfully detects new unknown malware and blocks internet access to some of them.

Cons : Bootup gets slowed down. High RAM usage during scan .

If you use old software then there is high chance that you will encounter compatibility issues with bitdefender. So update all the installed software and install only latest softwares

Definitely a Contender
Bitdefender's antivirus technology routinely earns excellent scores from the independent testing labs, though it didn't do quite as well in my hands-on malware blocking test. It holds the top score in my phishing protection test, and its parental control system works across multiple Windows and Android devices. If its strengths match your needs, it can be a very good choice. However, it's not going to unseat Norton Internet Security (2014) as PCMag's security suite Editors' Choice.

​This summer Bitdefender launched their 2015 version of security products. We were curious to test it and learn what's new, how well it works and, most of all, if Bitdefender remains one of the top security products on the market. We received a license of Bitdefender Total Security 2015 a week ago and since then we have been using it on a regular basis.

Verdict
​Bitdefender Total Security 2015 is a solid security product that delivers effective protection in a friendly package. The user interface has been simplified in this new version, the performance footprint has been optimized, all the available tools and features are more tightly integrated than they used to be and new and interesting features were introduced. All these changes and improvements make for a better user experience and a product that's faster and more effective than it used to be. We highly recommend it to all our readers.

Hello,

This is a mini-review of BitDefender Internet Security 2016.

Tested on Intel i7-4720HQ with SSD - so a fast system; not tested on low-end HDD (slow) system.

Pros:
Top-tier signature-based upon testing against samples from MT Malware Hub.
GUI is straight-forward and organized; minimalistic approach all the way around.
Highly automated requiring very little user interaction; very well suited to "set-it-and-forget-it" novice.
Notifications are clear, concise, unobtrusive but demand attention, and remain open long enough for user to respond if they so choose.
Safe Pay isolated browser that is stable (NOTE: Not the same as Sandboxie).
Only experienced one minor GUI bug and a few service crashes; BD auto-restarted and self-generated a bug report and submitted it.

Cons:
System optimization tools are completely unnecessary.
Since it is so highly automated, BD actions when protecting/cleaning system are not really all that clear (but maybe that is as it should be considering the intended audience).
Some minor GUI quirks that may confuse inexperienced novice.
Uses file rating/heuristics; lacks true Behavior Blocker.
BD Rescue Disk does not support Secure Boot (BD notifies user).
No firewall prompts from within which rules can be created; generic "Allow" autorules are created and editing is completely a manual affair.
No means for user to manually add object to Quarantine.
Navigation/info access is not always intuitive or convenient.

After some convincing I gave myself I am back with Bitdefender to check/try out the 2015 version. Just a short "checking out" (I do not want to stay using it) based on the previous trial I did with the 2014 version(BD IS 2014 and BD AV Plus 2014). I have prepared two partitions. One with Bitdefender IS 2015 as the only real-time protection (formerly with Avira Free + Comodo Firewall ver8 with HIPS) and one with Bitdefender AV Plus 2015 + Outpost Firewall Pro ver9.1(formerly with Avira Free + Outpost Firewall Pro ver9.1). The second partition was prepared to check or show contrast as to how the second security combination will fair against just BD IS 2015. I will not delve on the AV as I am confident that BD is superb in this category. The BD Wallet and SafePay I do not use either. I have my own app I trust

So these are some of my observations on BD IS 2015.

Seems sluggish (still).

There is still this sluggish delay feeling when opening programs and application. Even when just opening explorer.exe and the contents of that partition or folder is minimal it would go on reading it as if it was full t the brink or like an unrecognized usb stick being read slowly(or a dvd-disc slowly being read). Programs would pause for a moment while fully opening. Opening PDF files with PDF Xchange Viewer is also delayed. The file would open but it would show blank pages at start and after a few moments it will display the contents. Still observing here.

Prospective testers will undoubtedly be struck by the utter lack of new browser toolbars, following installation.

Hi there heres some news for those interested in the development of G DATA 2015

Some of the features being incorporated http://avlab.pl/page/g_data_2015_beta

Translated to english

We end 2013 and G Data already invites you to test the 2015 version.And not surprisingly, since the release of the programs on the market in 2014 marked version is released by the manufacturers already in the current year.If the G Data will not change anything in your release cycle, stable version in 2015 we can expect in late March / early April 2014.Here are just some of the official changes confirmed by the manufacturer in this early version:
Web Shield completely revised
protection against keyloggers for the browser
protection against exploits
Link Checker - a classification and checking links from https protocol on google, facebook and twitter

Registration page https://beta.gdata.de/teilnehmen.html

Official G Data Beta forum https://beta.gdata.de/forum.html

ROKOP SECURITY forum threads about G Data posted at http://www.rokop-security.de/index.php?showtopic=23482

I personally would test this early beta in a virtual machine. G Data do not recommend using it on a production machine

Have a great day

Most security companies don?t seem to place much value in parental controls, usually demoting them to an underpowered module in the darkest recesses of their security suite. But maybe that?s about to change. Bitdefender has just made available the first public beta of its standalone Parental Control package, and at first glance it looks really quite impressive.

You can of course use the program to prevent particular actions. In just a few clicks it?s possible to filter inappropriate web content, for instance. You?re able to restrict the use of particular applications, block instant messages from anyone other than a list of allowed contacts, and ensure the child can only use the internet at the times you define.

And because Bitdefender also includes a mobile component, you can also stop them receiving phone calls or text messages from certain phone numbers (although at the moment this is only available for phones running Android 2.3 or later).
Detailed reports on all your child's activities are always available online

If you?d rather take a hands-off approach, though, you could just use the program to monitor your child?s activity. You?re able to see what they search for online, the sites they visit, and everything that happens on their Facebook account, for example. Install the Android app and you?ll also have access to their calls, messages, settings and more. And because all of this is visible from a web interface you?ll be able to check up on th... Read more

Test the new Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool for PC ? Beta!

Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool for PC is a free app that identifies and removes unwanted apps such as adware, malicious hijacker programs, annoying toolbars and other browser add-ons. Keep the apps you like, get rid of the programs that bug you. The tool will only erase those apps that you wish to be removed. It scans your computer for adware, and produces a list of apps marked for removal.


Adware Remover | Bitdefender Labs

I D/L and ran it. I can't say how good it is as it found nothing as expected. It's fast, and Bitdefender has a good reputation. Probably not much use if you have adware protection. Worth a spin just to see. A Guy

Answer:Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool for PC BETA

I tried Bitdefender's free AV once; the only problem is that as soon as it detects something, it's gone. Even if its a false positive, or something like a modified dll it's just gone and Windows gets screwed up in some cases. If I had an option for whitelisting some modified dlls I'd love to use BitDefender.

So it's good to see we get some choice in the matter with this app. Might give it a spin.

Hi all,

New beta version is released: AVAST 2015 R4 Beta 2 (build number 2015.10.4.2228) and AVAST 2015 R4 Beta 3 (build number 2015.10.4.2229).

Today we unusually released 2 beta versions in order to test a new mechanism that will allow to avoid some compatibility issues in the future. For this beta testing we set the rule that machines with Windows XP will be able to update only to version 2228, all other machines will update as usual to the latest version 2229.
So please test if you machines on XP are on version 2228 and Vista+ on 2229 and both reporting as latest version. Don't worry we will remove the limitation for Windows XP machines in the next beta version, and we also won't limit XP users in the future. This is just for testing purposes.

How to install:

1. If you have installed some beta version before you can update it to this latest version via Settings->Update->Program.

2. Or you can download and install from here:

Developer Symantec, best known for its premium antivirus products, has released a beta version yesterday for the highly-anticipated Norton Security 2015 and Norton Security 2015 with Backup. Users and testers are welcome to try out the new product before its official release and report any bugs, issues, or suggestions. The trial period lasts 7 days.

Before getting into the whole installation, however, we can notice that Symantec made some tweaks to the product names. Norton Internet Security has become Norton Security, while Norton 360 has turned into Norton Security with Backup. As for the setup pack, everything is pretty much still the same. Installation is carried out fast and users are not given the possibility to exclude components from the package.

Performance results

The moment of truth: Norton Security 2015 Beta is clearly cleaner, friendlier, and more attractive than before, putting special emphasis on adapting its features to novice users' requirements. Well, that's not really possible since the application comes bundled with numerous settings for advanced usage.

However, the part that interests us the most is performance, namely scan speed, real-time responsiveness, malware detection ratio, and impact on resource usage.

We submitted a collection of 8,502 virus samples worth 2.36GB, which did not include zero-day (dangerous) threats. The testing machine was an Intel Core i5-3470 with CPU @3.20GHz and 12GB RAM, running Windows 8.1 Pro. Default set... Read more
