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.
