BitDefender Internet Security 10 review
Thanks to hourly updates, the typical update volume is only about 100Kb, so it flies by without much impact. But the same can’t be said of application start-up times: with BitDefender installed, you’ll see a slowdown in how long it takes for your day-to-day applications to execute. Firefox, for example, took over twice as long to get started.
So, while BitDefender has moved on, it still feels like a work in progress when compared to the market-leading security suites, with ZoneAlarm’s Internet Security Suite 2006 remaining our favourite.
