OK this is what happened, bitdefender is now using only 18 345 or something along those lines, my pc is fast again. but now BitDefeneder service are not responding. and asks for me to restart my PC.

But i will def. downlaod those utilities.

Hey WHS, how is MSE, is it good for a free AV..?
I think MSE does a good job. And many others have praised it too. But you really only know once it is put to the test. My MSE has reported and eliminated 2 trojans to date. But were those real trojans or false positives - who knows.
I have used Norton, Kaspersky and McAfee before. They had all done their job. But MSE seems to be the least invasive. So I guess I will stick with it.

If you just have installed BD2010...wait a little while, it goes right within the system...When all updates will be installed it will run smoother in background.

You can easily access to your parameters from the board of Bit Defender but at first set your network properly for it to recognize the computer, when you're web surfing, networking... and set the spam box for your email accounts...

If you do not show it the way of your network, it won't do it for you!

For exemple, mine didn't make any difference between a Wired Network & a Wi-fi Network...I had to manually set it.

When your done, go to scan parameters and uncheck automatic scan. Run it once a Week at the time you want.
This will not make affect your protection...unless you forgot to manually scan your computer for months!!!

Take your time to judge yourself if you need another AV...if BitDefender doesn't suits you!!

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Another vote for the best free anti-virus software I've ever encountered--MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials).

I use MSE exclusively and am pleased.

In any case, only run one and only one AV program on your computer. More than one will cause you problems and heartaches. Generally, speaking running more than one will increase your use of computer resources and quite often they will interfere with each other.

For that warm, puppy-dog feeling that all is well, then run Malware Bytes anti-malware program once a month or so.

Incidentally, the direct link to MalwareBytes is:

Notice that is a .org site. The .com site with the same name is to be avoided like the plague.

so it seems MSE is pretty good. I have read good reviews on MSE. SO what am im gonna do is wait until the subscription ends and find a free AV.

You might like to check out Avast! 5 Free. Avast! uses a lot less RAM than MSE and has a very good detection rate.

so Avast and MSE are the ideal AV's.

Can anyone give me advice to change the settings for the scan dick. all i can choose from is the settings tab, but nothing relevant is in this tab.

Sozzle for the double post,
