Having all the computer security software you need built-in to Total Security 2013 means you just need to install Bitdefender Total Security 2013 on your computer to keep it secure and working well instead of multiple differenet types of PC security software which can slow down your PC, and may conflict with different brands of security software making your computer less secure and stable.
It has an Autopilot mode which will automatically protect my computer which makes decisions for how to protect your computer for you, so you can continue using your computer without experiencing slow downs.

Bitdefender is easy to use. All I need to do is install it, and let it run in Autopilot to automatically scan my computer of viruses, and update the virus definitions. There is also a useful vulnerability scanner to make sure Windows Update, web browser, and other software is up to date with the latest version of the software to protect you from the latest security problems.
