Bitdefender is the most reliable choice if are looking for an anti-virus solution that has excellent malware detection rates with minimal impact on your system performance, as well as affordable cost. It also has distinct features like a file shredder and webcam and microphone protection, that block suspicious requests to your camera or microphone.
Easy-to-use antivirus software is another important aspect. Both Avast and Bitdefender are relatively simple to use, however we discovered that Bitdefender was a little more difficult to navigate when it comes to running scans. It took us a while to locate the settings, and it was difficult to set up a complete or boot-time scan.
In terms of support, Bitdefender’s customer service is much more impressive than Avast’s. Its knowledge base and phone support are both extensive. Avast, on the other the other hand, limits its contact options to customers who pay and relies on its information base and forums.
