    Repair Bitdefender, by following these steps:

    If the instructions from Step 1 didn't help, uninstall the Bitdefender program using the Uninstall Tool:

    It will completely remove the program.

    First, take screenshot(s) of the issue

    and create a log file on your Windows device using Bitdefender Support Tool, by following these steps:

    The advice may help with speeding up the scan but I think it would still be helpful to have a progress bar that shows how far through the scan you are - the time elapsed is no use because it just shows how long it's taken not how long is left.

    Hi @nicholas_rubin,

    What you proposed can be done technically, of course, and was suggested before on the forum. However, there are some concerns that an update progress bar may not be reliable enough for the developers to consider it.
    It's predictability and accuracy estimation is not satisfactory and the feature may negatively affect other functionalities.
