    Sorry I've left this thread open for so long guys but I've had a problem with Bitdefender since I installed it about a month ago. The problem I'm having is with the use of Steam, so that I can play one of my favourite old Dos games, Wolfenstein 3D. Steam or the game itself seem to be over riding...

    Just one question Bob. I have used the older paid versions of MWB with out any problems apart from slower start up. Apart from that, it will stop a truck. I have had a good read up on the latest free WMB and I'm quite impressed. The question is, if I install it, are you aware of any problems...
