@dmzbg79 you were right about the heavy startup time. I am using the same bitdefender settings for years (including scan boot sectors and protection at boot for randsomware) but this time the startup time is pretty long, included with a black screen. I did not experienced it in the beta though :(

Even scan "netw ork" shares is still spelled wrong after reporting it, some tools are not working but did in the beta. I am slightly disappointed in the release after all the feedback I gave, but I am used to that and not the only one complaining about it :p

Well the thing about bitdefender is that there is not much to tweak. I Just disabled autopilot, running shield in aggressive mode, made exclusions for malwarebytes anti-exploit, denied remote desktop connections and added some protected folders in the ransomeware module.

Boot duration before bitdefender was 24 seconds now it is 43,5 seconds :(

boot duration is a bug. It didn't used to be that way.

Anyone using a Bitdefender with remote wipe capabilities be careful. The minute your info get exposed they can wipe your machine and Bitdefender doesn't seem to have any 2 step authentication going on.

I have noticed,that the firewall in this new version of Bitdefender Internet Security 2017 is asking too many questions...:D

You can avoid the slow start up by disabling the early boot scan from the AV module. My computers now start at the same speed as they do with no antivirus. I have never noticed slow shutdown with BD.

actually, I was not suffering from slow start at first, until I customized the AV settings. But then when I went back to default, the slow start did not go away!

I guess if I cared enough, I would do a reinstall...

Unless you log in using Facebook/Google/Windows - which should have 2Factor Authentication. That's what I do.

Like @SHvFl pointed out...vulnerable login credentials puts your device at risk if (or when) your BitDefender account gets compromised.

My opinions on Bitdefender 2017...it can be configured a little bit easier. A little bit better in some ways, a little bit difficult in some ways. Just because it looks more robofied... if Ransomware Protection, despite fears of False Positives... are not accurately tweaked and enabled right at the start, then BitDefender loses its worth, its value and its reputation as an "Install and Forget".

Ok i didn't know you could do that. I made a Bitdefender account for testing. At least there are option then. Thanks for correcting me.
