How To Force A Stop Scan Of System
I am running Bit Defender Antivirus Plus 2013. My understanding of the literature that came with the program, together with information on these forums, is that Bit Defender is only supposed to carry out scans while the computer is idle. However, as I type this Bit Defender is chugging along at full pace, scanning my computer as evidenced by the blue activity on the security widget, and slowing everything down. I would like to stop the scan, but I cannot find any way of forcing a stop scan.
Question: how can I force a stop scan that doesn’t involve restarting the computer? Surely the programmers will have thought to include such a function.
Thanks in advance to all who take the time to respond.
