Giveaway: Bitdefender Windows 8 Security

Bitdefender Windows 8 Security is a new antivirus product from Bitdefender tailored specifically for Windows 8. While there are many antivirus software available for Windows 8 (practically, any antivirus program that runs on Windows 7 is likely to run under Windows 8), Windows 8 Security has been designed by utilizing features unique to Windows 8.

The key addition to Bitdefender Windows 8 Security is the support for the new Early Launch Anti-malware (ELAM) feature. As already explained in another article, “Early Launch Anti Malware” provides a mechanism that allows anti-malware software to start before all other third-party components start, including drivers. This allows Bitdefender’s antivirus scanner files to load very early during the boot process, before the malware can load. This improves Bitdefender Windows 8 Security’s ability to detect and kill infectious programs.


In addition, the program also includes a “Proactive App Scanner” that automatically analyses your Windows 8 apps and notifies you when one has been compromised. Also included is Bitdefender Safepay, a secured internet browser that keeps digital attacks at bay by automatically opening all your online banking and e-shopping pages in a separate, secure browser.

And of course, the interface is optimized for the Modern UI.

Everything else is identical to Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 (except the interface). This means that you’ve got a real-time scanner, vulnerability scanner, anti-spam, internet firewall, social networking protection, parental controls and more.

Bitdefender Windows 8 Security retails for $60 for 1 year of protection. Thanks to Bitdefender, we have 5 licenses of this antivirus scanner to giveaway to our readers. If you are interested in entering the giveaway contest, leave your name and a valid email ID in the form below. Winners will be selected by a random draw. The contest closes on February 19, 2013.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
