    I just went to renew the annual subscription on bitdefender. I was going
    to take advantage of a discount offer.

    After running through the usually form and not opting for all the extra
    bits they try to sell I got to a paypal screen with some extra fine
    print. It looks that if I had continued I would have had my account
    billed every year until I opted out.

    I raised a complaint in a chat window with bitdefebder and they have
    canceled the subscription as I would only pay year to year with no auto
    payment. I am waiting to here from sales to see what they have to say
    for themselves.

    They have emailed me to remind me to pay but not to resolve my problem
    with there conditions. ( May be that they forgot to cancel the sale as
    promised.)


    I guess it is the same as always READ THE FINE PRINT.

  2. BitDefender has in recent times gone the way of Symantec and Network
    Associates, promising you the world but giving you little more than
    bloatware, marketed to buggery in the hopes that the gullible masses will
    fork over their cash.

    Use M$'s own Security Essentials
    (http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=5201); it'll give
    you far better protection, is far less intrusive than most security
    software, is very lightweight (resource-wise), and is entirely free.

    I use free products like Avase or AVG for antivirus,
    and
    Spybot or Adaware for spyware.

    Personally I use the combination of Avast antivirus and spybot.
    All thsese are free and far better than many that asks for money.

    Avast, AVG, Spybot and Adaware has paid versions as well.
