    Can't believe these punk kids...
    still shite after all these years.
    I avoid them like the plague, but occasionally have a client who's dumb enough to install them.
    Got one machine it didn't work on, after 50 minutes of running through all the useless worthless garbage the 15c-an-hour indian call center workers get you to do,
    finally got them to admit it was a problem with their servers, but they wouldn't refund the product.
    What the hell. Who buys this kind of support for $142?
    Marketing I guess.

    At any rate, they seem to be operating outside of the law. I can't think of a single western country that doesn't have strong laws in place around refunding/returning on products which don't function. Too big to fail, I guess?

    linus did a video on bit defender and he couldnt infect his pc visiting very shady sites. i always watch the sites i visit so cant really be bothered to buy it, i just use free malwarebytes to scan when im paying for something online. ofc it'll be better to have real time protection...

    Apparently! They get by, mainly through getting preinstalled on hp's etc, then scaring consumers into purchasing.
