Bitdefender Antivirus Free Adds Quarantine Ability
By: Liviu Arsene  | comment : 0 |  May 17, 2013 |  Posted in: Tips and Tricks


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 we’re always trying to improve user experience by including new features, we’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 “infected” 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 “Remove from Quarantine,” the selected file will no longer be blocked from running – giving users greater leeway in trusting the file.
