Excessive Hard Drive Activity (win7 & Bt2012)
I'm using the 30 day trial of BitDefender 2012 on a Windows 7 64 bit. It's version 15.0.38. I like except for what I ~think~ is a performance issue. I can't think of what else recently changed that would create this sluggishness.
I've noticed that when I start an application, such as Word or SnagIt, my external hard drive will continuously churn. A program's services may show as being loaded in Task Manager, but the app doesn't show until much later. It takes minutes for applications to open. When the program does open, I often see (non-responsive) in the program's title bar. I've checked Task Manager and the CPU usage is under 10% and memory is about 70%. Interestingly, it doesn't do it for all apps. As example, CuteFTP worked fine.
I used your standalone support app and it created a zipped file on my desktop which is about 6.5mbs.
I FTPed the file to my website. Is there someone I can send the URL to?
