POP UP from Bitdefender



I have had a pop up from  Bitdefender saying upgrade to 2018 version for free. No drama free upgrade ok but, I still have licences to use for the current version of Bitdefender AntiVirus Plus 2015 to last next 3 years to come.


1) Will licences still work?

2) Will the software work with Q9550 based system with only 8Gb of ram?

3) Will the software work with Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and MS-DOS 6.22? (If no, Windows 7 64Bit Pro)

Look forward to replies.


Please note, I did try and post in a different section of the forum but alas, no replies. I would like to know, as this pop up is now becoming a nuisance.

    I'm sorry for the delay. 

    1 - Yes, if you have a valid subscription for the 2015 version, you will be able to use it for the 2018 version, but you will need an account on the Bitdefender Central platform in order to activate it.

    2 - The system meets the recommended requirements

    3 - The oldest Windows version with which Bitdefender 2018 is compatible is Windows 7 with Service Pack 1.
