Bitdefender CPU usage is abnormally high

edited February 2022 in General Topics

Bitdefender is at all times using a minimum of 30-40% right after boot. This however often goes above 60-80% as time goes on. I can’t even imagine what it would be using so much CPU for, and it stops me form working and playing most games as they can barely run anymore. What can I do to fix it?



Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz, turbo 5.1 GHz.
