Customer Reviews

Bitdefender plus didn’t accomplish the task.

I had a frozen Imac as a result of a virus attack through the internet. My Safari browser was totally taken over and wouldn’t allow me to do anything. I first got the Bitdefender which was free and it didn’t help. I then purchased the Bitdefender plus and it likewise didn’t do anything. For Safari, one had to download an extra into Safari through the Bitdefender site. The had not mentioned that until I had already bought Bitdefender. With Safari locked up nothing could be loaded from Bitdefenders site as an add on. So finally, with the help of Apple care we managed to get the Imac back on track taking about two hours of work to finally get in and get rid of the infected cache and all the history. Bitdefender was a total waste of money and only helped slow down the overall performance of my Imac after it was cleaned up and running. I wouldn’t buy it again. Now that I have it, it remains to be seen whether it will prevent further attacks. I will hope so.

Full Protection

I first purchased antivirus sentinal pro and didn’t understand how it worked or what it did even after talking to customer service, it just scanned and it didnt look for or delete bad stuff. This program did all that, scanning, deleting bad stuff, letting you manually delete if it couldn’t, and it came with a free safari scanning device and a few other cool things. I think its worth it as long as it doesnt slow down my computer which it has not done, but i have only had it for one day


Had gotten some adware/malware from some web page. tried to clean it myself, deleting history uninstall browsers etc. Chrome/Safari but didn’t work. Installed this program and it found and removed in 2 min. worth the $30 to get rid of it and a little peace of mind.
