In order to avoid problems (including the possibility of bricking my machines) when running updates, especially BIOS, I have to uninstal BitDefender and then reinstall it.
It would help if there were a way of exporting all the user-set settings so that they can be imported to the reinstalled BitDefender. If there's a way of doing this currently, I haven't found it.
It would also help if BD would not refuse to reinstall if there is another AV or scanner on the machine. In this case, I refer to Malwarebytes, and BD should NOT force me to uninstall other software of this sort.

Regarding your second inquiry, it is not recommended to have more than one security solution installed on your computer at the same time. Having multiple antivirus programs running at the same time will not make your computer more secure. It may degrade performance and even prevent proper malware detection, as the two programs will compete for the same resources. To ensure its proper functionality, you should remove other security solutions prior to installing Bitdefender on your system.
