CNET Posted BitDefender Antivirus 10 Review with a 6.8 out of 10 score

CNET Released BitDefender Antivirus 10 Review
Robert Vamosi of CNET has reviewed new BitDefender Antivirus 10 giving it 6.8 out of 10 rating.

THE GOOD:
BitDefender Antivirus 10 offers two licenses and a two-year subscription at a price below that of the competition; runs on Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP; features award-winning antivirus protection.

THE BAD:
BitDefender Antivirus 10 performed slower than the competition; doesn't uninstall completely; the help file is a separate application to open.


THE BOTTOM LINE:
BitDefender Antivirus 10 is a solid antivirus and antispyware solution, offering two-year subscriptions for the price of one elsewhere; however, it could be faster, offer built-in help, and uninstall better.


Interesting facts from the review:
Once installed, BitDefender requires 60MB of disk space, twice as much as Eset NOD32 and CA Antivirus 2007, comparable to McAfee VirusScan Plus, yet one-third the size of Norton AntiVirus 2007. In terms of system resources, BitDefender Antivirus 10 (using its default scan settings) is neither a resource hog or nor is it lean, falling somewhere in the middle instead.
