Previously i have cover BitDefender 10 free edition before. But now, free BitDefender 10 edition has upgraded security features whereby equipped with latest BitDefender 2009 antivirus engine. The best part of this free anti virus comes with the ICSA Labs certified scanning engines found in other BitDefender products which allowing you to enjoy basic virus protection for no cost at all.
Meanwhile, BitDefender 10 free edition provides similarity security protection like AVG 8.5 free edition to user. However, the only differences from other free anti virus which it doesn’t provides real time protection. It perform virus scanning based on demand scanning only for detection and removal of all viruses in the wild every time you need it.
However, you can plans a scheduled antivirus scanning for regular interval scanning full system/drive scans in the off hours, when you won’t be using your computer. Plus more, other security features on BitDefender 10 antivirus free edition like immediate scanning, scanning report or quarantine also provided.
