I've been using Bit Defender Free
for the last month or so.
I'm very pleased with.
Context menu choce to scan any file, always available to use.
Scans a little slow, meaning thoroughly.
Light on resource use, and no resident in the free, so even less resources.
Of course it is up to me to scan.
I do that once a week. In the background. Daily if I want to.
I update it whenever I bring it up.
No family surfing, and my habits are predictably, so I don't need constant sentinals.
Updates less frequently than Grisoft
(which I have used for 2 years with very few complaints)
Today I will install Ewido
to try out for a while.
Guess I'll have to go to some crummy sites in the near future to check it out more fully.
I will leave Bit Defender in. Just not run both at the same time.
I'll see how that goes.
Potential conflict in the context menu would be my only concern.
guess it's what I've been told is called "granular", or customizable to suit my needs.
