Reduce or Tweak BD use of memory


I am using Windows 11, Desktop, 64 Bit with 12MG RAM and I5 Processor.

I have BitDefender Total Security, the latest version installed.

Sometimes when I run other apps they are unable to complete what I have done and certain tasks become grayed out - for instance when I want to save an edited image. Maybe the image editor is using an inordinate amount of memory and that is the culprit.

That said, when I check BD memory it is sometimes 500 mg or 60% of my total memory.

Is anyone aware of possible tweaks to reduce BD memory use. Maybe turning off certain BD services or somehow adjusting processor priorities for BD or maybe other settings in the program?

Thanks for any suggestions.
