Pros
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus excels at preventing virus infections, and it can disinfect a previously compromised PC.

Cons
With 400 million users worldwide, it is surprising that such an excellent brand is not exactly a household name.

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus advances in excellence every year to remain the best antivirus software for Windows 7




Four-hundred million PC users run Bitdefender security products.
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus is a strong antidote to hackers and the best antivirus for Windows 7, according to test results from AV-Test labs in Germany.
Bitdefender can be thought of as corporate-strength security for the home. Winner of the Gold Award for Windows 7 internet security,
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus is easy to use, effective at protecting against malware and able to disinfect previously infected PCs. In addition to performing well,
it contains excellent features and includes world-class customer support. Some key features are protection against identity theft,
protection of privacy on social networks and advance warning of any risky websites that appear in Google or Bing search results.

AV-Test labs put 25 antivirus for Windows 7 products through three batteries of tests during the autumn of 2012. Bitdefender scored 5 out of 6 points for its usability in recognition of how well the product is designed to be accessible to its users. It earned 6 out of 6 points for its ability to make your computer inaccessible to hackers and their malware. It also achieved a perfect score in tests designed to see if it could disinfect machines with running malware.

Bitdefender's performance reputation is also enhanced by its VB100 certification from an independent malware test lab named Virus Bulletin. In summer of 2012 tests, Bitdefender proved to Virus Bulletin that it could detect every one of the malware samples that the WildList Organization lists as "In the Wild." Bitdefender generated no false positives when it scanned a large test set of samples that were not threats. In order to achieve VB100 certification, the software must run with the default, out-of-the-box settings in the lab at Virus Bulletin.

Features:


Bitdefender defines malware as programs that:

Replicate through a file system or network without your permission
Allow unauthorized people to take remote control of the system
Send files or information to a remote system without your consent
Send data to your system with the purpose of disrupting its normal functions

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus has scanning engines that are out to get malware. The scanning modules organize into two types. There are pattern-matching scanners, the classical approach to antivirus protection that relies on a database of known-threat signatures to identify viruses, worms and spyware. There are also heuristic scanners that kick in where the pattern-matching scanners leave off. Heuristic scanners go to work on brand new threats that couldn't possibly be in the signature database yet. Heuristic scanners look at the behavior of suspicious files and infer variants of known threats based on various similarities.

Bitdefender has a number of notable features. It keeps your credit card information private while you make online transactions. You can watch videos or play games without being interrupted by Bitdefender. If you attach a USB thumb drive, Bitdefender will immunize it. Scans occur during times when you are not using your PC heavily. Another notable feature is that it is possible to manage your Bitdefender products remotely from your online Bitdefender account.

If you search using Google or Bing, Bitdefender will warn you about threats in all search results. Bitdefender filters any links that you receive from Facebook and Twitter and monitors your privacy settings. When you get a post or comment on Facebook that is spam, phishing or malware, Bitdefender warns you and your friends.

If you log in to your online Bitdefender account from your Bitdefender antivirus application when you are connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi network, Bitdefender will invite you to use a secured connection that it creates for you. This lets you use public hotspots safely because Bitdefender will encrypt your internet connection.

Help & Support:

Technical support is free 24 hours per day, seven days a week. You can contact Bitdefender directly from within the software or go through the online support center. Help files, documentation articles and a database of topics are available from the product interface. The support center publishes extensive technical product information such as bug fixes and articles about virus prevention. Bitdefender also sponsors an online support forum where fellow users can assist each other and receive communications from Bitdefender support technicians.

Summary:

Windows 7 has better innate security than XP, but Microsoft only improved it to do a slightly better job of protecting people who refuse to pay for third-party antivirus software. Windows 7's built-in security is not as good as the security that you will enjoy after you install Bitdefender Antivirus Plus.

Bitdefender wins third-party performance tests. It warns you about websites that are known phishing scams. It protects you while you send email, use instant messaging, send tweets and use Facebook. It keeps your credit card details private during online transactions and encrypts your internet sessions when you use a public Wi-Fi hotspot. Windows 7 is a well liked operating system that will provide even better protection when you install the best antivirus for Windows 7: Bitdefender Antivirus Plus.
