    "Baidu is free, which is great. But is it worth downloading? Not really. I find that it slows down my computer and does not help at all to block phishing attempts. "

    "This antivirus has been preferred at every company I have been employed, so I trust that they are the best. I have never had any issue with security or use with this software. I have the ease of mind that my computer is safe. And the pop-up reminders are great! I don't have to worry about remembering updates or anything like that."

    "The Bitdefender Security & Antivirus is a quick and useful tool that I have used often for my Android phone. However, it doesn't seem to be compatible for my PC so I am reluctant to recommend this to people who are looking for the best programs to fix a computer."

    "Defraggler is a great tool for defragging a computer. It won't fix all your problems, so if you have a virus, broken component, or file corruption, it's not the answer. However, it worked perfectly to fix my computer running slowly, and it let me customize the defrag a lot. Not a cure-all, but a good solution for one issue!"
