    Hi Parrallels Team,

    I have just installed Parallels for my new Macbook (M1-ARM) - well, my computer tech person has. I LOVE IT but have a major problem in that BitDefender, the internet security program we have via our computer support company does not run. Are there any other internet security options I can use? Below is copy of email received from my computer tech person:
    - Bitdefender Antivirus:
    I tried to install it but was not sucessful. I did some more research and found Bitdefender can't be installed on ARM-based PCs.

    You can find more details here:
    https://www.bitdefender.com/consumer/support/answer/1776/

    Furthermore, there will be limitation while you are running Windows 10 ARM-based PCs. It means- Drivers for hardware, games and apps will only work if they're designed for a Windows 10 ARM-based PC.

    More details:
