for the last few years I've used Bitdefender AV and been really pleased with it.Its been excellent and I've never had an issue or problem in all that time.
I had always used Zone Alarms free firewall along side it and this combination worked well until a recent update by Zone Alarm, after which the two programs conflicted causing boot problems so I decided to buy Bitdefender Internet security 2009 with a built in firewall.
I'm very disappointed with the firewalls performance,to the point where I just do not feel secure using it.
It appears to fail even the most basic and simple firewall security tests that I've tried.
The Zone Alarm "FREE" firewall that I used previously passed these tests without exception.
Even GRC's basic firewall leak tester penetrated Bitdefenders "protection".
I'd love some feedback/help/advice or opinions from other Security Suite 2009 users.
