    I was over at the Comodo forums reading through the general software discussion when a user posted that Bitdefender Free contained real time protection on the Brazil site.

    So using the wonderful Google Translate I was able to find the BR Bitdefender free link via the Comodo post and translated the page. To my surprise the faq says Bitdefender has basic live virus protection in the free version. I see no traces to an American Equivalent but maybe its a sigh of things to come?

    Link to Comodo post about it: http://forums.comodo.com/other-security-products/bitdefender-antivirus-2011-free-edition-on-bitdefender-brasil-site-t65868.0.html

    Thoughts on this?

    The comparison page makes no mentions to real-time protection to neither of the versions.

    Awesome so it does seem like that version of the free has real time protection if I understand the pic right.

    I wonder if they will be releasing a free version in full English?

    Or we just use the language it comes in? It can't be that much different from the English version layout.

    top
    Virus scanning and removal
    On demand scanning - Powerful scan engines ensure detection and removal of all viruses in the wild every time you need it.

    Scheduled scanning
    The Scheduler lets you plan ahead, and schedule full system/drive scans in the off hours, when you won’t be using your computer.

    Immediate scanning
    With just a right click you can check your files and folders.

    Skinable interface
    You can express yourself, designing new interfaces, or you can use those drawn by others.

    Quarantine
    By isolating the infected files in quarantine, the risk of getting infected diminishes. You also have the possibility to send these files for further analysis to BitDefender Labs.

    Reports
    When launching a scan you may choose to create a report file where you can see statistics about the scan process.

    Looks old to me System requirements:
    Pentium MMX 200 Mhz or higher processor
    Minimum 64MB of RAM Memory (128MB recommended)
    Minimum 40MB available hard disk space

    Operating platform: Windows 98/NT-SP6/Me/2000/XP IE 4.0(+)

    I see what you mean. I know the Brasil-Portguese version asked that I took off Avast & Windows Defender (which isn't on!). This version installed no problem and is doing a scan. I'll take it off later today.

    As far as I know Bitdefender doesn't contain a behaviour blocker, I guess they rely on the strong heuristics?! :doubt:

    I thought they had the B-have behavior monitor/blocker? I could be wrong.
