BitDefender is one of the fastest security products out there. Unlike Norton and AVG, it doesn't slow down your computer. That's because BitDefender is made in such a way that it doesn't consume a lot of system resources and relies on speedy scan technology and behavioral detection methods. So if you have a decent computer, BitDefender won't slow it down and you won't have any problems running the software.
