Bitdefender scan at startup AND login from sleeping


I recently purchased and installed Bitdefender and it works awesome. Right until I put the machine to sleep and later tried to log back in. It spun on the login screen for like 10 minutes with a message saying that there's a scan and it might slow things down. After like 10 minutes I was finally given the login field and got logged in. Then the actual startup took 10 more minutes before I had a useable desktop. I hard rebooted my machine and again the same thing.

I don't have Bitdefender in my "login items" so I'm not sure why it starts a scan/optimization at that time and if I can make it not happen.
