It’s ironic that Microsoft’s operating system is named Windows. The OS is so porous that viruses, trojans, and other malware can fly into your PC with the ease of a lost bumblebee whizzing into your home. Sure, Microsoft works round the clock to patch up ever-present security holes, but given that a Windows security update was just released to plug 28 security gaps in various programs, you should probably work out a back-up plan.
And, today, we’ve got that plan for you. It’s called Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2012 — and it’s on sale right now for $29.95 (10 bucks less than the street price).
This version of the long-running company’s anti-virus software works for up to one year on three computers. Each system gets full access to software suites full list of features. That includes a hassle-free interface called Autopilot, simple-to-use drag and drop modules for cherry-picking your protection strategy, and a web-scan tool that not only vets the web but also scans email and instant messenger traffic in real time.
As a bonus, Bitdefender also includes protections against identity theft, even going to such lengths that it includes 24/7 credit monitoring for U.S. users.
