bdservicehost - Bitdefender Virus Shield @ 100% CPU on 3900x


When I first boot my PC, I can hear my fans and everything else going crazy.

I open Task Manager and It shows bdservicehost running my Ryzen 9 3900x CPU at 100% along with 2GB of ram and some Disk usage going on.

When I expand the bdservicehost, it shows Bitdefender Virus Shield. So I feel like it's a virus or something.

This last for several minutes before it drops to 0 CPU usage and everything seems normal.

Does this mean I have a virus? I don't know, but if this is normal with Bitdefender to happen, can it be healthy for my PC?

  • This fixed my problem, Thanks!

    If you were interested in knowing what caused it for me, I downloaded and installed an android emulator, it asked me to restart to finish installing drivers. Then that started happening.
