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.
