Internet Slowed To A Glacial Crawl

Installed "the new bitdefender" on my son's new computer about 1 month ago. No troubles until recently, now the internet has slowed to a crawl.

Unistall BD and the problem goes away.

Takes forever to load a page or to navigate within any site.

Anybody else having this problem?


  • Hello Firecapt,

    Thank you for reporting this issue.

    Does the issue go away when you turn off the Bitdefender firewall? If it does, did you try to make the changes explained in this pinned topic?

    If you did and the issue persists, let us know if there were any changes done to the operating system. Any new software installed at that time?

    We are new to BD also and we have three pc's which now use BD Total Security and my laptop was slow to download and install, my desktop seemed to take very little time ( they use Win 8 ) but my partners laptop using Vista took well over 90minutes!!!

    And we still don't know if it has installed correctly.

    All pc's use the same type of internet connection. Firewalls were off on all three pc's.

    Cheers :mellow:

  • When I downloaded BTS it took around 30 minutes from start to finish - not the fastest of downloads and install. :) Well worth the wait though!

    Win 7 HP SP1.
