BD Internet Security: System slow and delayed response when offline
Bitdefender Internet Security Build 126.96.36.199, Win 10 Pro 21H2
Ryzen 5 3600, 16 GB RAM, SSD
I got the problem that my system gets slow and responds with delay if I am offline.
In general while working/playing on the PC if I dont need internet anymore I will disconnect the LAN cable from the modem.
If I have been online before and I remove the internet connection the following occurs: Right click menue on desktop or in the explorer will open with a delay up to 30 seconds. Programs will start delayed. If I just click on files once, the small loading circle appears for several seconds. The taskmanager which has a shortcut on the taskbar will start and open with a 30 seconds delay. Even the shutdown via the start menue will be initiated with a delay of some seconds.
If I disable the Bitdefender Shield or connect the PC to the internet again, all these delays disappear.
The system is a pretty fresh install. No other AV software has been installed before. I also read about this issue in a computer forum. Additionally I did a clean install on another SSD with the same results. So I am very sure Bitdefender is causing this problem.
I kindly ask you guys to try to reproduce this issue by staying online for a short time like doing a quick scan or a manual BD update, then disconnect the internet and check if you face these delays I mentioned.
Looking forward for your help and thank you in advance.
