      I used Kaspersky a long time ago and recall having problems with it somehow. Glad Avira works for you!
      Judge tenderly, if you must. There is usually a side you have not heard, a story you know nothing about, and a battle waged that you are not having to fight.Hidden Content

      Just got to thinking last night how much easier my laptop is to use, how much faster it resumes from hibernation, since I dumped Kaspersky and put BitDefender on it. I'm thinking I can kick the cost of a new laptop out by at least another year and maybe more.

      Using Kaspersky a "quick scan" could still take two hours or more. Using BitDefender I just ran a quick scan and it took 54 seconds. It's like I have a new laptop - the virus scanner really does just work in the background, rather than slowing everything down when it runs, to the point that there were times I'd abort it just so I could actually use my laptop.

      What type of countdown? Did it show you a pop-up message or something like that? As far as I'm aware, most licensed antivirus software have some sort of tab in their user interface where they list the number of days left until the subscription expires. For example, my current Avira license (which will expire soon) has several tabs, one of which (called "Licenses") shows the expiration date:

      Not its countdown that was annoying, my own mental calendar of when I could dump the piece of garbage and use something else, without wasting too much of what I'd already paid.

      Kaspersky helpfully reminded me how many days I had left, until my license expired after I uninstalled it. Then they sent me helpful emails ("Your protection expired seven days ago, why not renew now?"). Given how internet security products weave their way into just about everything they must have known I had uninstalled it rather than simply forgotten to renew my license. At least now they seem to have stopped emailing me.

      From all that I can tell, it works as well as Kaspersky, Avant, and Norton which I previously had...and it's free with the computer.
