Updated Mon, Aug 04, 2008 by Cody Bye

Are you tired of seeing those incredibly annoying antivirus "Alert!" messages when you're in the midst of your latest raid? Perhaps you've been camping a mob when all of a sudden your game lags because your antivirus software is downloading their latest update? Thankfully, the developers at BitDefender have come up with a solution in their antivirus software package dubbed GameSafe. Recently, Ten Ton Hammer's Cody "Micajah" Bye took the software for a spin and has posted his review of his experiences! Check it out, then don't forget to nab a copy of the product via our Game Safe giveaway!

When I had Game Safe passively running in the background of my machine it barely made a dent on my performance.
