    Yes, we noticed this thing as well. It's basically not a crash, appears hanging because when it closes it attempts to compute a sum of discovered vulnerabilities and compare with the precedents. This was simple and not time consuming until relatively recent, but now it does more things and appears hanging (I noticed around 3-5 seconds, not crazy but enough to give the impression of hanging).

    Anyways, an issue has been filled and is currently on our near future to-do list. Bear with me for some time (not much, I hope) until I will get this one fixed and released.

    -- STEP 1 --

    Repair Bitdefender, by following these steps:

    -- STEP 2 --

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


    It will completely remove the program.

    Next, reinstall Bitdefender from your Bitdefender Central account and see if the issue has been solved, as reinstalling the program usually solves the issues.

    -- STEP 3 --

    If the instructions from Step 2 didn't help, follow the instructions in this step.

    First, take screenshot(s) of the issue

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

    Next, contact Bitdefender Consumer Support by e-mail:

    Since you are all done, just wait for the support engineers to investigate your issue and find a solution to fix the issue.

    Remember that the screenshot(s) and the log file will help a lot to the support engineers for better and faster investigation on your issue and finding a solution.
