    Default Bitdefender Is Best Windows 8 Internet Security, AVG is Best Free Security




    According to the well respected, comprehensive and independent test of internet security packages, done by AV Test, Bitdefender has come out on top as the best overall internet security package. Bitdefender received 17 out of 18 points, followed closely by BullGuard with 16.5 points and Kaspersky with 16.


    The test applies to the Windows 8 operating system only and is the most comprehensive and up-to-date internet security test currently available. The results are probably quite similar to what you’d expect to find on Windows 7 too. So as a general rule if you are looking to invest in Internet Security for your Windows 7 or 8 computer you will get the best protection from Bitdefender.


    If we take a look at the freely available internet securities, which a lot of people use because they offer nearly as good protection, we can see AVG Free Edition 2013 does the best scoring 15.5 points. AVG Free is followed closely by Avast Free Antivirus 7.0 with 15 points and Panda Security Cloud Antivirus Free 2.1 with 14.5 points. Microsoft’s free included Windows Defender 4.0 does badly scoring 11.5 with the joint lowest protection score.


    Funnily enough some paid Internet Security packages like McAfee, with 12.5 points, Comodo Premium, with 10 points, AhnLab V3, with 10 points and Norman Security Suite Pro 10, with 12 points, all did worse than the three best free Internet Security packages.


    So we can pull some conclusions from these tests, which are that if you pick the right paid-internet security (Bitdefender, BullGuard or Kaspersky) packages you can get the best security.However, you can get nearly as good free internet security from Avast or AVG and this is very often better than a lot of paid internet security packages on the market today.

    Currently um using "Baidu Antivirus 2013 Free" its a Chinese anti-virus- one of the best antivirus I have seen atleast better then Avast/Norton. No hassle for updates, it releases small part updates so u dont need to update the whole engine every time just like Avast just loving it

    I don't get how that small updates is a feature, every AV is like that unless there is a major change. If Baldu never has any major changes then that's a bad thing.

    Avast doesn't have that big updates either, currently using AVG since Avast started to feel bloated.

    Bitdefender has conflicts with IDM. It does not let you pause files in IDM which is really frustrating. I have just uninstalled it and using webroot SecureAnywhere
