Long boot time


My boot time is twice as long (24 to 48 seconds) with bitdefender installed on a ssd. I also have a black screen on the startup. I did not experience it in the beta version or the previous bitdefender 2016.

    Try turning off the early boot scan,

    From the GUI> View Modules> Antivirus Module gear icon> Set "On-access" slider to Custom> Miscellaneous Tab> uncheck "Early boot scan"    Confirm the slider is back to where you had it set.

    Yes this definitely needs improvement.

  • I just want to let you know that my boottime improved considerably without changing any settings in bitdefender 2017. Maybe Bitdefencer Photon is responsible for it?

    The product adapts to the machine, given enough time.

    Also the dev team are releasing updates to further improve the product.

    Microsoft's Windows Updates also help in improving the machines performance and compatibility between applications.

  • Thank you for the information Sorin G. :)
