Hi,, i am thinking to buy the bitdefender internet security ,this program is heavy; does effect the performace of one computer;

from where can i test it; can i find one trial version? for this antivirus?

I had before the norton internet security but it couldn't find all the viruses and it was very heavy program

I have seen that bitdefender internet security has very good reviews..is it worth to buy?

From what I have seen and heard, you should be in pretty good shape if you just use the Windows Defender software that is built in to Windows 10 and maybe add to that the Malwarebytes software.  I have been using that combination for a couple of years now without any negative problems or infections.

I use Windows Defender with Malwarebytes and of course common sense. So far, everything is alright.

Windows Defender is plenty IMO, as long as you use common sense when browsing the web.

It's a waste of money buying internet security. 

I use Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, AdBlock Plus and my common sense. I also use 'pop-up blocker (strict)' but that's because I download ETS2 mods from a site that has a lot of pop-ups. You don't need 'pop-up blocker (strict) but it's nice to have.

My advice is also to not click on stuff like "free ipad" or "free gta 5" and you will most likely be fine.

if you totally must have a software to keep you safe, at least grab one that isn't a scam like Kaspersky or ESET Nod32

i know norton is a scam, but is bitdefender too?

 

btw, i use a combination of comodo firewall, bitdefender free, malwarebytes, built in trend micro in my router and common sense. if you really want a all in one solution without having too much to do for a fair price, buy bullguard if the sale is still going on

The problem is in the "free" all free versions of these software are purely cosmetic, when shit goes down it'll just go like welp if only you had our paid version!

 

I'm not as much into how bad the company is though as I am at least safe to say ESET and Kas~ at least do software that does what an antivirus and etc should do without hogging system resources excessively and not being intrusive warning every thing nor stopping user from using w/e he wants even 'safe' cracks.

yeah, that's why i stopped using avg. because it keeps asking to buy the internet security version or tuneup. bitdefender seems to do pretty good so far

so bitdefender   internet security is the best;;

it isn't the best. imo it's not even worth buying, do you have a vpn, defender and malwarebytes? and common sense? you might be even more secure for as much as a yearly subscription to bitdefender. but i don't mind people buying a antivirus. you at least help the research against viruses
