Constantly high CPU usage by Bitdefender Virus Shield after a recent update (requiring device restar
I realized there is a thing called Bitdefender Virus Shield consuming 10% or more constantly (never stops since boot, tried rebooting) after the recent update.
I know it is the cause, as I just also tried to reinstall the software. The issue was initally gone right after the reinstallation. However, later it askes for the update followed by a restart, the problem resurfaced.
It keeps my CPU at 57 degrees. Another nice job after all that ads. I didn't pay to keep my machine slow.
