After much reviewing and asking questiions i purchased Bit Defender Anti Virus v 10 as it got very good reviews. All was well until about a week ago I started having trouble with my email. All messages wouldnt come through, and it cut me off immediately. Someone suggested i check the "hang up after receiving email" box and sure enough it was ticked, though I never did that.
Then no email would come through at all! i have 3 accounts and the all "failed". Im using OE and Firefox. I couldnt send email either.
Finally after trying to get through for 3 days, I managed to contact my ISP helpline. The very helpful gut in IOL tried everything and went into dos and pinged etc etc. I hadnt much notion what he was doing, but anyway he told me something was disconnecting me, as he could connect to my account no problem. He suspected anti virus.
So I uninstalled it and loaded on Avast from a disc, and the email works perfectly. Not alone that but I imagine the pc is running a bit faster, maybe Im paranoid!
Anyone any exoerience of this with Bit Defender?
And I think I'll stay with Avast, whats your opinions on it?
