Huge Slowdowns In Batman Arkham Asylum
Hi all, after two years using BitDefender Antivirus, and with only 8 days left on current subscription, this is the first time I have encountered a problem. I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, an Intel i7 920 processor, a Radeon 5870 graphics card, 6 Gb of DDR3 RAM and a Gigabyte EX-58 Montherboard. I have recently upgraded to BitDefender Antivirus 2010, and I have a problem with this antivirus and one game, Batman Arkham Aslyum.
With BitDefender disabled the game runs perfectly smooth, it loads a savegame in seconds and I have no slowdowns at all. However when the antivirus is enabled (even with Game Mode activated), the game freezes completely all the time. The easiest way to notice it is to run the game benchmark, a floating camera does a fly-through in various game levels. You can clearly see how the game stops. At the end of the benchmark, you get the minimum, average and max framerate. Average and max are normal, but minimum framerate is 0, because the game stops. I have verified it using fraps. When I load a saved game it takes a lot of time. Once it has finished loading, the game freezes a lot too, making it unplayable at some moments.
It does not matter if Game Mode is enabled or not, the game freezes at the benchmark. By the way, I have installed BitDefender using the "gamer" profile when it asked me. Oh, I have fully reinstalled Windows before I tried to disable BitDefender because I didn't know what was happening. I have also upgraded the graphics card a week ago, but it's freezes with both the old and the new card.
Is there any known problem with this game?. Anyone can verify it?. In 8 days I must decide if I continue another year with BitDefender or I look elsewhere
