Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition is a freeware solution for users who want to keep their PCs safe against various threats that can come either from the internet or from removable storage devices. The latter ones are automatically scanned by the tool whenever they are connected to the PC in order for users to avoid accessing infected files. The internet protection shield also features a firewall so that traffic is filtered and certain scanning ports are blocked to prevent unauthorized access to one’s PC.
The utility manages to keep high standards and it does this by only requiring small amounts of resources in order to run. Even scanning processes can be accomplished while performing other tasks on the computer. A small widget that provides quick info about the local and internet scanning process can be displayed on screen, if users want to keep track of the tool’s performance.
