Slow and cuts out


I am new to Bitdefender. I installed it yesterday for the first time. I am experiencing a few teething problems.

  1. Some pages take longer to load (some take about 30 seconds). This never happened with my previous anti virus software.
  2. When I listen to the radio (streaming) I occasionally lose connection (briefly) then it connects again. It can be a pain when it happens repeatedly.

Are there ways around these teething problems?

    Thanks Gjoksi

    I am considering going back to my previous anti virus. Some (not all) pages take a age to load. It drives me crazy. (Screenshot attached showing time of page time).

    I can't enjoy listening to the radio online also as it cuts off then comes back.

    Thanks again.

    If you were to totally disable Anti Tracker, do web pages load faster, and does the online radio work better?

    Some of us, including myself, have disabled that feature and found things to work better while online. We found that to be a solution in this thread as well:

    It's not a problem in a sense that you're disabling a key feature of Bitdefender security, as if you go into your main BD console and click the left side, Protection/Online Threat Prevention/Settings, you will see all of the other key features that are keeping you safe online. Others like uBlock etc. as their anti-tracker option.
