Strange new message before booting Windows 10

Hello everybody, I'm having a quick question about Bitdefender. Since last week, I always get this message right before my PC is booting Windows: "Your security solution is cleaning your device from threats. The cleaning process finished successfully!"

Is this something new or do you think I have a security problem on my pc?



  • Same here! Very few entries in www with no apparent solutions/clarifications.

    Boot scan of Bitdefender in rescue mode reports no issues.

    Hope someone from support will handle this before more of raised eyebrows..

    Hi Member

    When files that are currently used by the system that are considered malicious by bitdefender are unable to get deleted or quarantined, then a boot time cleaning is scheduled to get rid of those threats. I have myself faced this issue many times & this is normal. But that being said, it should not happen on every restart.

  • Since the last Windows update (I think) I am having the same issue every time I turn my PC on. It basically doubles my boot time and it becomes quite annoying, to the point where I'm considering switching AV providers.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
