Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2012 review and 6 Licenses + 1x Internet Security and a BitDefender Total Security License each 1 Year to GiveAway

We take our hands on the new Bitdefender Antivirus 2012 Plus and installed the 64 bit Version on Windows 7.
The Download Files of the possible final version are under a subfolder 'intern' to found.

BitDefender 2012 installed fast in a matter of a few minutes.
A system restart is not required.

After a system scan all virus samples were detected but also some false positives shown up incl. Nirsoft Programs and others, old exe packers inclusive.

Some productivity software applications refused to work if Bitdefender 2012 is installed which is not so nice! More Application compatibility errors by the 'intern' download build by many programs which seems to be worse as in Bitdefender 2011.

BitDefender's uninstall Tool can be found here

IncrediFlash with which we create Product Presentations did not more work next to some known and reported programs (non of them are security or system tweaking/modification related). We reinstalled without success Bitdefender 2012 and IncrediFlash XTreme, tested the same combination on a complete fresh Windows 7 64bit installation but unfortunately we were unable to create, with Bitdefender 2012 on the system installed, the animated product show below.

Bitdefenders excellent virus signature database is also to found in F-Secure, G-Data and Bullguard. We will review this AV's later.
Auslogics Antivirus can be downloaded under the OEM folder and is the same in a rebranded user interface.


Bitdefender is a great Antivirus in a nice Design. The detection engine is outstanding. Compaired to most other AV's the false positive detection rate is low. Application incompatibility, if the AV is installed, should not be the price of a good protection.

Absolute Silence

Although i cant scan this file. I have false postitve. Bitdefender av flags reliance netconnect dialer software(reliance is a popular teleco company india) is identified as a trojan.

pls try to include me too


Admin said...

It needs a lot luck that it is not and application incompatible errors in last minutes get fixed because the files are uploaded in the last 12 hours with setups added (the complete content of the installer in single files) to the download server and getting more and more complete with all languages. From experience of the past years, this files are the content of the final release, prepared to be released as single setup in one day.

Giveaway For You said...

Thanks For Share!

Mounir said...

Thanks for this new version of the well known security program.

Cloud said...

According to BitDefender, their 2012 product line won't be released till July 28th. Which means the final version has not yet been released.

Admin said...

I'll bet with you that we are not wrong reporting.
This build with Digital File signature issued by VeriSign on ‎Monday, ‎25. ‎July ‎2011 15:10:51 by BitDefender SRL will be to 99% the final version. There is not much time left to fix the issues as written in this article by compiling another build especially 'cause the localized builds based on it, get uploaded more and more (GB, NL,...). Of course it will be better if some bugs will get fixed before the release (merged from this single files into one setup).

 I like black, Thanks

fabius said...

i'm here :D

amazingAG said...

Hahaha Chris the requirements is bit too tough for the general users and that's why till now nobody fulfills the requirements. Anyway i really appreciate the rule, so a thumbs up from my side.
DON'T COUNT ME for this giveaway as i still have 200 days left in my current security suit(Kaspersky Internet Security). 

Thanks for the awesome giveaway. Good luck to the participants. 


Admin said...

Haha,... I know but then they maybe don't know how to install if it need to download more than one file and place into one folder to run install -:))
I'm very upset cause non of my Flash Creation Programs started anymore after installation as well the Backup soft issues are not fixed. I get application error crash logs on certain programs. Now more as ever reported in the forum. That was not with F-Secure Betas 2012 or any other AV test this year.I do mean there is not much hope left that it will be fixed and a newer build come in the little time till the official website redesign and graphic stuff is done for official announcement of the 2012 Versions.

There is little hope, but try nonetheless. Perhaps it is luck.

Kalju said...

I have a question: does anyone know it is working version of the 2011 license?

Cloud said...

According to Wilders, some necessary installation files in those folders are still missing. Do NOT install Bitdefender 2012 till tomorrow!

Vasilij Ignatenko said...

Hi coot give away ...


Admin said...

what should be missing as one guy write there: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=304199

The installer will refuse to install/uninstall/repair if anything is missing.
The only I can think of is that the uninstall tool will get updated which is Optional: http://www.bitdefender.com/files/KnowledgeBase/file/BitDefender_Uninstall_Tool.exe

Is there hope left that Program compatibility issues will get fixed eg. with software from http://www.incrediflash.com/ and http://www.backup4all.com/ and some others???

Kalju said...

Thank you very much, will try soon. I have a 2011 3-year licenses for all versions ofBitDefender 2011. Good luck!

Ankur said...

yeah, wilders do reported missing files. anyway, now its almost released 

rodken said...

Put your left foot in, take your left foot out, put your left foot in and shake it all about, wait! that's not it! (sorry I have kids, forgot where I was)
Anyways great software, still have 133 days on their antivirus myself, and great site, just not going to install the other software. They are both overpriced compared to simular software and don't agree. But like I said great site thanks anyways.

Briareoushex said...

Bitdefender a better antivirus.

Admin said...

That's impossible. Change backup software maybe but change/replace IncrediFlash XTreme with something other you will not found by certain criteria anything better as replacement.

Admin said...


gonzo said...

I've never found it. Bitdefender is the law!

rodken said...

Like I said this is a great site. IncrediFlash XTreme is very simple, and is good soft at a better price for it's ease of use than others. Though the others are more powerful - SWiSH, KoolMoves, SWF Quicker, Can you say AS3. And if you have a few minutes more you could use http://vectorian.com/ and get it done for free.
...Do the hokey pokey turn yourself around (sorry)
Great site!

Admin said...

Hi, This is superb software tips! I didn't know about this programs. Worth a try!

It look nice! Fomerly I've used anothe antivirus, but with BitDef has a fresh look. Look this screens hoot. It is not classic way!

Siddharth said...

dear admin ,you haven't used the word "or"between  backupforall and incrediflash hence i decided put two screenshots of Backup4all pro and the rest screenshots are of creation of the Video of Bitdefender screenshots with increditools.Actually the output video size become large and i have got busy in my work so i haven't get time to upload the video.
If you have a license key then you can send me but my Bitdefender trial has already expired and i already deleted it.


Mbusi Ndlovu said...

my problem is that the company seems to be interested with making downloaders instead of focussing on making antivirus softwares. Their downloader cannot continue where it stopped/failed due to network error, commercial downloaders like dap(download accelerator plus) continues where ever it stopped for whatever problem. As a result,you are forced to burn your bandwidth each time network fails, this is a serious company flaw, concentrate on your business only! 

Ahmed Khadercis said...

thanks i get good feedback from your word Mr .

best regards for you and for all .
but wish Bitdefender Internet Security smoothly best than
