High CPU, Power Usage


Windows 10 Home, v.21H2, Build 19044.1889

Bitdefender Total Security, Build

Since the latest update, Bitdefender Total Security, Build, I've been hearing my fan run high. Checking Task Manager I see the "bdservicehost" process running constantly at 20-25% CPU usage, at the LEAST, occasionally greater, which means a steadily greater power consumption, and that translates into a significantly shortened battery charge period. Anyone else having this experience? Any fix in the works? Thanks.
