Anybody currently using Bitdefender as on my old machine with 2 GB RAM and intel pentium dual core 2.1 GHz it was using 100-120 MB RAM. I haven't used it on my new PC. I am surprised to see reviews here. So much difference from one PC to other!!!:unsure::emoji_expressionless:

You have less RAM than the average modern PC (eg. 8GB), and usage may vary on the installed OS and architecture (32-bit v 64-bit).

It was windows 8, 64-bit. Does it mean that PC with high RAM spare more memory?
Potentially yes, but memory is supposed to used.

Your system is limited to a maximum of 2 GB RAM, for both OS and Programs. That's why you see your usage is far less than say a PC with 16GB of usable RAM.

Hardware Experts can correct if wrong.

I think I'd be willing to pay for a "Bitdefender AV" that is just the Free but with access to settings. I already use the Free version on Android.
If it doesn't cut your wifi like it did for me on Winodws 10. It happened multiple times, and for some unknown reason it was not easy to reconnect. I didn't mind the resource usage, but cutting wifi and blocking safe websites?

I'm guessing deactivating some kind of setting, like "Meddle with Encrypted Connections" like many have nowadays might solve that, and I generally defer blocking pages to other stuff, so it would be "Bitdefender. Just AV Version". I might be dreaming here.

Yes, you may be dreaming. No settings changes in Free. Maybe you can turn off SSL scanning in paid versions. I had to look elsewhere.
