    bitdefender give free upgrades right?

    if they do, what will be the next version, is it that crappy total security which i detest

    or will there be a better 2008 version, one that is not 'total' ?

    Yes they give free upgrades when you have a valid license.

    My guess is that there will be a barebone antivirus only version and the Total security version will most surely replace the current Internet Security package.(just like NOD32 current beta is for the complete suite but they will also offer a standalone AV)

    Beside a new interface, I don't know what a barebone v11 will bring though. The scanning engine in the current beta is the same as in v10.
    Bettter vista support maybe, or they might also throw in the defragmenter(what a joke that tool is, as far as I can tell, it simply calls the windows defragmenter API)

    BitDefender 11 will have a different and better engine in the final release. Yes, upgrades are definitely free during the license period. There will be 3 versions of BitDefender 11:

    1) BitDefender AV = The same as always :D
    2) BitDefender Internet Security - replaces Professional Plus/AntiVirus Plus
    3) BitDefender Total Security - Replaces the current Internet Security edition

    BD Internet Security users are going to get a free upgrade to the Total Security edition AFAIK. You may need to contact BitDefender if you wish to use BitDefender Internet Security 2008 instead of Total Security.

    Thanks to Chris for asking the question and even more thanks to Firecat (who else?) for answering the question.

    I have the same concerns/fears as Chris about BD's Total Security, but I have been happy with both BD's AV+ and Internet Security (V9 & V10) up to this point.

    Again, thanks to all......
