    Current version of Bitdefender

    Hi. I've used Bitdefender for a few years - current version is and in Programs & Features it's listed as Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition.

    However, if you go to and scroll down to the bottom of the homepage where it says Tools & Resources/Free Antivirus, it leads you to a file called bitdefender_online.exe. This file promised to overwrite my existing bitdefender and replace it with a new version 'fully compliant with Windows 10' (or words to that effect). That didn't happen - I got a program installed called 'Bitdefender Agent' and the installer for bitdefender_online.exe went into a loop at every restart.

    Can anyone tell me what the 'proper' version of Bitdefender for W10 is? Thank you.

    Hi Stephanie and thanks. That takes me to the same exe file mentioned before: bitdefender_online.
    Do you have a program installed called Bitdefender Agent and does your Bitdefender look like this:

    Yes indeed (you can see it in my attachment above). What's your version number and what have you got listed in Programs & Features?

    It's all a bit strange – my version is higher than yours and my 'system' is protected whereas your 'device' is protected. I'll maybe send a 'ticket' to Bitdefender seeking clarification. Thanks for your help so far.

    Your welcome :)

    But note the graphic of Bitdefender at the download site looks the same as mine ?

    I can confirm that Stephanie's version is latest Bitdefender free version. But there is also business version that I'm not familiar with.

    Links and notification of the latest version are in this thread: bitdefender-free-2016-out-beta

    Edit: if I remember correctly, your version is Bitdefender free 2015

    I've deleted what I had and reinstalled so that I now have the new version. My thanks to you both.
