A free antivirus that uses #1 ranked technology and is feather-light
If you’re looking for a basic anti-virus solution that’s also resource friendly, BitDefender Free Edition is one faithful companion. Using certified scan engines, BitDefender Free Edition provides real-time anti-virus protection, without burdening your system.

BitDefender Free Edition features a user-friendly interface that allows you to easily configure settings and perform tasks. A quick virus report is displayed in the Dashboard panel, while the System Info section offers a quick overview of the running processes, active startup items or started services.

In order to perform virus scans, users need to access the Antivirus section. Choices consist of deep system scans, full system scans, quick system scans, or auto log-on scans. All these scanning types can be scheduled.

If you wish to find out in depth information about a certain virus or spyware, make sure Outbreak Detection is active. This option sends reports to BitDefender Labs for further analysis.

On the very top of the BitDefender interface, a status of potential issues notifies you to fix them as soon as possible. If you prefer a more compact interface, you can switch the GUI to Basic View; quite frankly, this is a more elegant approach, but it’s a matter of taste after all.

During our tests, BitDefender Free Edition performed quickly and computer resources were fairly used. We encourage you to use BitDefender Free Edition if you require the most basic antivirus features. If you have a rich Internet activity, more complex solutions are advised.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition will provide users with an antivirus program designed to be fast and to minimize user interaction, while sacrificing nothing of the malware detection and removal capabilities that Bitdefender products are generally known for.

By default, Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition scans and cleans your system using only the resources that you, your software or your operating system are not using, thus achieving near-zero impact on your activities.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition periodically scans all of your files and handles all security-related decisions for you. This means you will see no pop-ups, no alerts and you will not have to configure any settings whatsoever.
