Now, I am looking for a new anti-virus program that will protect me and my family since my parent don't know anything about technology. I have been using the website, Top Ten Reviews, and they said that Bit Defender happens to be the top 1 rated anti-virus software and I am still thinking of purchasing it. I am still a member of McAfee and they rated that company a #15 on the top 20. My subscription ends next year and I am thinking of leaving the company. My question is it safe for me to switch from McAfee to Bit Defender? Have anyone have the program?? If so, what do you think about the software. I need more opinions on this software, and hopefully then, I will decide on switching very soon..

Top 10 reviews put whoever has the biggest affiliate program at the top of their site from what I can tell. AV-Comparatives.org and VirusBtn.com are proper AV test sites - they don't take payments or offer links where they get a kick-back.
I actually wrote a piece on the AV review sites and how impartial they are in our blog a little under a week ago:
