From the way we work to the way we play and the way we communicate, the Internet has changed the way we live. And, as with anything, it has its own set of issues.

One of the major dark sides of Internet use is the risk we run of being targeted by various e-threats: viruses, spyware, malware, scams, hackers, and phishers. These are serious matters, and BitDefender, the #1 antivirus software provider and Editor's Choice from CNET and PCMag, doesn't take them lightly. In fact, they make it their business to keep you safe from the entire spectrum of Internet security risks through their line of products for both Windows and Mac.

The 2013 BitDefender line includes several new features. Among them is BitDefender Safepay, which protects the banking and shopping that you do online by keeping all of your credit card information private. When you know that information is secure and that BitDefender is working to keep you safe, you can feel better about the ease of making purchases from the comfort of your own home.

The USB immunizer scans any flash drives connected to your computer to make sure there's nothing harmful on them, thereby helping to keep you and your friends virus-free.

Device Anti-Theft, available with Bitdefender Total Security 2013, can locate, lock, or wipe your computer from any device connected to the Internet.

Hate the disruptive pop-ups that traditionally come with the antivirus software territory? You'll be able to enjoy your browsing without interruption with BitDefender's AutoPilot feature. It runs in the background, pop-up-free.

Social media has become an integral part of our lives, and with it, so too has come the fear of falling victim to scams, hackings, and other privacy violations. With BitDefender's Social Network Protection, all of the links you receive from friends across various social media sites will be filtered, and your privacy settings will be monitored.

Ever wish you could have complete control over what your children are doing online? With BitDefender Parental Control Options, you can block any web content you deem to be inappropriate. Don't want them using the Internet after a certain time? These controls allow you to restrict access to certain hours only. And a feature that is sure to be popular among many parents: BitDefender makes it possible for you to monitor your children's online activity remotely, so even when you're not home, you can see what they're doing on the Web and social media sites.

For those of us who spend a good deal of time using the Internet for both business and personal purposes, network safety is not something we take lightly. When you earn a living doing work online, all it takes is the slightest security gap and you could be losing money instead of earning it. BitDefender provides all the tools to keep your Internet experience safe and your business running smoothly.

    I’ve gotten viruses on my computer. It had been hacked into one time.. So I’m extremely concern about security and I think Bitdefender would protect it. If I won a new laptop would replace my old desktop computer that is not portable and is extremely slow. It takes about 20 minutes to start up. So a new laptop would save me a lot of time.

    I once got my email hacked and that was a huge bummer! I should win a new laptop since my poor hubby’s laptop is on it’s last legs and it would be such a nice surprise!

  4. Laura V says:

    Just navigating the web now at days with trackers, cookies, viruses, backdoors and so on, is a challenge. While doing things for school, research, working online has become a really tense hazard for our private information and online habits. We shouldn’t really have to worry about all of that “invisible” problem that we don’t see until it is too late. I bought bitdefender some years ago, and it has never let me down. I wouldn’t invest my money in any other type of antivirus.

    This is a great contest! I haven’t had the best–or the worst–experiences with security. I’ve tried so many programs, but nothing yet has wowed me. I’d love to win this contest because I am in dire need of a new laptop from which I can blog better!

    My computer issue was pretty serious because when I got hacked, the perpetrators took over a thousand dollars out of my Paypal account. Ever since then, security has been a chief concern of mine, but I still know little about it.

    I just had someone on facebook pretend to be a friend of mine. They actually opened up a second account and was adding their friends one by one talking about a big surprise. I noticed it sounded fishy and asked them a question about my friend they didn’t know how to answer. I guess email is getting to the point where they saturate it with these false lotto winning claims, and beneficiary claims, trying to get you to login to your band on their site. All kinds of traps but you learn to recognize it after awhile, they have been on ebay now facebook. It is crazy, well I have a disability and help some friends out using the web a laptop in my room sure would help.

  15. Donald Burdette says:

    I could use a new virus tool that does not drag down the computer to the point that it’s almost unusable.

  26. Melissa E says:

    I would LOVE to win! My only security experience is with whomever my Internet Provider is supporting. It is free that way, but I feel you get what you pay for. I am on my 3rd computer in 5 years due to Viruses. I REALLY should upgrade.

    My netbook is giving me headaches from staring at the screen for too many hours. A laptop could really help my eyesight! Also, I work in public places a lot and really need to protect my computer more.

  30. Tonya C says:

    I have had two severe viruses get by my security software. they were so bad I had to boot from disk both times.

    The reason I should win one of the Dell Inspiron laptops with BitDefender Total Security is that my computer is from 2005, its keyboard does not work so I have to lug around a keyboard, and one of the viruses wiped out the battery area so the computer needs to be plugged in all the time.

    And on top of that when ever I start to do anything fun at all, the computer overheats and shuts down. It is time for an amazing new computer with brilliant security!

    And a sympathy play follows(though the following is true): I am unable to purchase a new computer myself because I have an illness that keeps me from being able to work (even for myself).

  31. Mary says:

    Since my computer is a dinosaur, bought in 2003, I am extremely concerned about security issues. I’m constantly updating programs, but my husband just recently told me that Microsoft will not be supporting the Windows program that I have after next year. So I really need a new computer.

  32. running a small home network with a mix of ancient dell pc’s running xp and an inspiron that I LOVE, I’ve used all kind of AV software, including an older verson of Bitdefender a while back, which worked very well. So, winning a computer with this preloaded would be a real treat. Security is a high priority to me! Thanks for providing this contest.

  33. Vicki Kron says:

    Virus, I’ve gotten one; adware and malware, I’ve gotten those too. Security is of great concern to me, and I want the best. I just wouldn’t be without it on any computer. Now I’ll tweet and like. Thanks!

  34. Rhonda Woodworth-Tardif says:

    I’d love to win the Dell laptop with Bitdefender. I’m starting an online business and the laptop I have is very unstable. It’s crashed several times and I’ve been afraid I’d lost a lot of info. Luckily, I found a computer geek who was able to restore it, each time. There were always viruses at play.

    This is my second laptop and I’ve said for some time that my next one will be a Dell. I’ve heard nothing but good reports about Dell.

    My promise to myself is that as soon as I can afford it, I’m getting a Dell laptop, but hope this one holds out until then.
    And to have one with Bitdefender, well, that would be the ultimate.

  35. Jessie says:

    I once got a virus that imitated my current anti virus and disabled all functions on my computer. I had to do a manual shut down, get on my phone to research what I had been hacked with, start up in safe mode and get rid of it. Huge pain in the butt!! Bit defender sounds like it would be great to have, as would a new laptop! Thanks for doing a giveaway!!

  36. Brittany Cucchiaro says:

    I currently have Bitdefender installed on my old laptop. Unfortunately, when my mother was using it, she ended up accessing a site that attempted to instal a virus on my computer. Luckily, thanks to Bitdefender, no harm came to my laptop! You guys are awesome.

  37. deb says:

    I should win the laptop cause i am winning it for my freind raising her sisters twin babies. her laptop is broke and i promised her i would try my hardest to win her one. She is trying to get her own business going cause she make minimum wage cleaning for molly maids. Please let me help her!! :)

  38. deb says:

  39. Leo says:

    we were using an an old Dell pc,even with an Anti virus(Not Bitdefender) it was destroy by virus,we explain to our dad telling him that it was a virus,but he just snub us,this has affected me a lot cos,i can only surf the net on my mobile phone,so i will be very happy to win the Dell laptop,with also the best antivirus software! That’s cool!

  40. Tim says:

    My wife’s computer is on its last legs, and money is tight since we have to live apart for the next year! Two rents, two utility bills, two everything. She needs the computer for work, but it’s nearly at its end. Winning would solve a really big problem for us. Thanks, bitDefender!

  41. Mike says:

    I have awesome friends who are not so awesome with their internet browsing skills. Frequently they either get hacked or signup for things that turn out to be dangerous malware sites and I constantly am heading over to help them save their computer, or worse, help them start from scratch (which I have gotten quite good at). If I’m picked to receive this product I will be able to test it out and then encourage my friends to buy it too saving me valuable time and saving their valuable data. pick me please!

  42. Don says:

    I’d love to win the Dell laptop with Bitdefender. With all the things messing with my computers world nowdays it needs all the protection it can get.

  43. Sal says:

    I run a repair shop and when looking for a document on balancing wheels, I get a virus. Not only does it shut down my computer, it also shuts down my business. Already we are tight, and I would love to have a software that protects not only the computer but the business as well.

  44. Fran says:

    I had computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses,rootkits, spyware,adware, etc while using Norton, AVG and McAfee. By winning and proven BitDefender can prevent these, I will promote your software.

  45. Brian says:

    Sometimes I think my computer is being entirely driven by secret virus programs. I hate those evil viruses and the bozo’s that create them. Boooh. It’s bad enough we have bugs and viruses in real life; why do people think we need them in our computers too. Thankfully, people like Bitdefender want to keep us safe and bring down the hammer on those wicked virus villains.

  46. Sandeep Sharma says:

    i have had many encounters with viruses and other malwares and spywares. the last encounter was just 2 weeks back. i lost my very important documents, presentations and other imp stuff. i even had to make a clean install of my windows. i have tried nearly every antivirus programs but none of them satisfied and i didn’t purchased any of them. i want to give a shot to bitdefender and i think this is the best option if i get a laptop with bitdefender totally free……

    Bidefender on a new Dell. Yes, please!

  48. bm sharef says:

    My computer has been running very slow since few days ago and it looks like I have been infected by a spyware which my Avast anti-virus could not detect. I am in desperate need of Bit Defender.
