BitDefender 2010’s optimized scanning capability allows on-demand scans to be completed in half the time needed by previous versions. By avoiding scanning files known to be safe this process improves the scan speed and reduces the system load. BitDefender provides a database of files known to be safe, and updates this database on a continual basis.
BitDefender 2010 also features three dashboard views – Novice, Intermediate, and Expert – to better accommodate users with different levels of PC knowledge. For a full list ofBitDefender 2010 features and benefits by product, please visit here.
My Verdict: I have used BitDefender for almost 2 months and found it very reliable, the best part of it is, it don’t slow down your PC while scanning. I can assure you that if you are running Deep Scan Periodically than chances of your PC getting affected reduces considerably.

However, we recommends to backup the Windows Registry and create a Restore point before using IE Tweaker. This will help you to restore to a previous condition, when you feel that the option didn’t work as expected.
Please refer the appropriate MS KB articles to know the detailed process of backing up the registry, and creating a restore point as the steps may differ from one Operating system to the other.
You can also use the “Reset to Defaults” button on the welcome page to revert the changes.
