Bitdefender Gamesafe

I've been looking into this and it looks quite good, only uses 5mb of ram (so it says). It's basically a slimmed down version of Internet Security 2008.

This good or should I go for a different AV?

Previous experiences with BitDefender (original not slimmed down!) will make me tell you to try it out. Any form of trial?

But I will recommend ESET NOD32 to you.

Eset nod32 again

Its light enough

Like the lowest false positives

Not quite as good detection as avira but only like 2% in it but runs better and a hell of a lot less FPs

Iv tried others in the past, yet i still go back to eset

Know a student/are one? You can get 50% off the cost (1 year = £15 !)

Gamesafe trial is at the bottom, costs £15 anyway for a year

Was on NOD32 trial but it ran out, might have to buy it

Id say you need a mix of both tox,

Sure i havent had any alerts yet

but with the amount of "drive by" attacks i wouldnt want to risk having a keylogger present wen using credit cards etc.

but what is the detection, cleaning and false positives like?

i found when i tried others to eset nod32, a lot were finding clean files and viruses and some (kapersky for example) slowed me down too much

Never used one never will.

I now know the registry like the back of my hand. I know the HDD layout too. Any dodgy files/programs I will pick up on.

But really it all comes down to not clicking random links.

It's just nice to know that it's there incase of a human error

Currently on a game safe trial.
