of my worries revolve around my children, hoping they grow up happy and
healthy, enjoying life and having the best I can offer them. I also panic about money, wishing it would
stretch further, but otherwise I am generally a contented individual. Well that was until my current anti-virus
software ran out… then I was flooded with concerns!
thought of a whole host of viruses rejoicing in the fact my computer had no
defences to protect itself. I was worried about going on any website at all to
be honest! Given I blog, avoiding the
Internet, as a whole was not really an option.
Luckily I was offered Bitdefender Total Security 2013 to review as my
computer was screaming at me about “multiple security threats” – so quick as a
flash I started to install the software and felt with it a sense of calm.
usually deals with IT support in our house, but I did not want to wait. Fortunately installation was very simple, I
attempted it myself and succeeded! With
a huge sigh of relief on installation it said: “Bitdefender scanned your memory
and critical system areas and no viruses have been found”!
shopping and banking with a secure environment means I am happy to carry on as
normal. Living rurally its nice to
explore the Internet again.
I ever lost my computer I can remotely lock it down! How clever is that, using the anti-theft options you can wipe all
the data off it! All very high-tec I
did not realise security software had developed this far, I feel like James
Bond with the latest technology!
security widget lets you drag and drop files to do a quick check on them, I get
sent lots of press releases and other documents so at least now I can check if
they are safe before opening attachments.
mode is quite clever, especially if you’re a gamer, you can play a game without
interruptions by allowing the product to automatically enter game mode. Hubbie gets annoyed if anything disturbs his
gaming time, so this is ideal for avoiding that!
boys do not use the Internet as such yet, just supervised with myself to do
their educational games and learning.
As they get older though I can imagine the parental controls will be
increasingly important and useful. You
can even monitor their facebook account!
are even tune up options to help you get the best out of your computer and
enable it to run more efficiently! My
computer is old, on its last legs, so it will be useful to see if I can get it
to work better, hubbie will be impressed I can manage without his guidance (he
might actually get more time to game!).
