How to stop bitdefender regular scans?
I have Bitdefender Antivirus Plus
Every day at about 6.35pm Bitdefender runs a scan that batters my mechanical drive for about 10 minutes. I have a few SSDs and I don't mind it scanning those but the mechanical drive seems to take a real hammering. The scan produces "Potential Device Vulnerability" results. I have turned off Vulnerability under Protection -> Vulnerability but this doesn't make any difference. The scans still happen.
I don't have any custom scans.
I bought 3 year Bitdefender because with Covid I got a new job working from home and wanted to make sure I was safe for my new employer, but I'm finding Bitdefender a really difficult product to like. A lot of settings are hidden from the user, I get too many adverts from Bitdefender, and things like the SSL man in the middle reduce my confidence greatly. I use a lot of IT test equipment on my LAN and Bitdefender makes it much more difficult. Has it always been this difficult?
