Bitdefender Antivirus Free for desktop computers is designed to minimize both the performance footprint on computers and user interactions. Using the same award-winning technology proven to fend off even the most intrusive malware, Antivirus Free not only offers 24/7 protection, but is also fully compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Since weâ€™re always trying to improve user experience by including new features, weâ€™ve now updated our Antivirus Free to include a Quarantine function that prevents malware-infected files from doing harm.
Based on considerable feedback from our users, the new Quarantine function allows file-specific whitelisting, enabling full user control over infected files. While some files may be deemed â€œinfectedâ€ by any antivirus software based on their dubious behavior, they may still be trusted by the user.
As such, they may choose to reinstate quarantined files and continue to use them without having Bitdefender Antivirus Free interfere ever again.
Files can now be removed from quarantine and restored to their original location, without having their functionality altered. Just by clicking â€œRemove from Quarantine,â€ the selected file will no longer be blocked from running â€“ giving users greater leeway in trusting the file.
By manually removing a file from quarantine, users accept any and all consequences associated with its performance. While Bitdefenderâ€™s Antivirus Free warns of the risks of running a potentially infected file, users who disregard the advice do so in full knowledge of what might happen.
Although false positive detections are known to happen, we still encourage users to exercise maximum caution when reinstating quarantined files.
By implementing the new Quarantine feature, we aim to improve the overall user experience and reassure users that all requests are given careful evaluation. By submitting your suggestions and opinions, youâ€™re helping us deliver an antivirus solution specifically molded to your needs.
