Windows 7: Anybody uses BitDefender Antivirus?

Anybody uses BitDefender Antivirus?

Hey guys. I was with NOD32 for 4 years now and I want to tryout BitDefender. I've read multiple tests and a lot of them shows BitDefender in the top 3. Anybody has any experience with BitDefender? Any tips or tricks with it?

Thanks!

I think NOD32 is better than Bit Defender in terms of pro-active protection.

I think Dinesh means ESET NOD32 is better than BitDefender I would tend to agree - they have a longer established reputation.

The thing is with NOD32, is that it has soooooo much false positive it's annoying.

Virus deection is very good but... like the others said, is it pro-active enough?

EDIT

I have installed the trial version... so far, it's doing his own little thing. No problems during install or anything.

It is very pro active, ie it steers you away from suspect web sites, monitors for malware etc etc. It also updates silently.

I have only had 1 false positive which I found the work round for via their forum.

I would recommend it to anyone.

I like them both but I would go with Bitdefender, hasn't steered me wrong yet and I have been using it for about 5 years. It's also lite on resources.
