I tried Bitdefender gallantly last year over a period of 2+ months and never got it to work. So eventually I gave up and downloaded an evaluation copy of PC Security Shield and it worked great with absolutely no problems. Now today after installing a third computer to my network I wanted to add another license of PCSS. After trying the evaluation copy for one month I made the purchase. But I had to completely uninstall the copy I had and reinstall their latest version "V2". To my shock and surprise it installed Bitdefender with the PC Security Shield name on it. It's been working ok for the most part but in the 3 days of installation it's given me that typical BD something is not responding and I should restart my computer. It's always fixed itself without restart but the fact that I'm getting error messages already brings back bad Bitdefender memories. My PC Security Shield on my other computer has not given me an error message in the 6 months I've used it.
So what's up? Did they merge?
