    The Idle Scan feature has been removed from our products since the 2015 version.

    You are actively accessing files the product will scan them to ensure they are clean.

  • Hello,


    System is not part of Bitdefender. That is your operating system.

    There are some applications that cause System to eat a lot of resources, one of them being Picasa as it doesn't support W10 and needs to be updated to Google Pictures.
