in my case, when I have played a game, the bitdefender product went into game mode, and went from consuming 250 mb to consuming 90 mb of ram, in my case.The issues is that it didn't free ram the when running a game or chrome.
Wich degrade the performance even more then storing the database locally "hard drive/ssd"
Norton/Symantec only got new technologies buying start ups (it was like that to SONAR, Firewall, etc) they stopped buying other companies to acquire technology a lot of time ago, they only don't get old because when they launched these technologies they were step forward from competition and it can handle until nowadays with minor changes.I am only saying that they are not going to be a technology leader in the future, like they were in the past. And those who aren't leaders in technology, they always remain in the "good" category, not the "great" category.
I also suffered with Bitdefender FPs.I actually uninstalled my BD trial because it started creating files in C/Windows/Debug and flagging those as malware, there is also a file called PASSWD.log that got filled with samchangepassworduser2 each time I turn on my laptop. Uninstalling BD just cleared those and PASSWD.log is always empty, maybe BD creating fake warnings to make users think the product is actively protecting them?.

i really liked it too. i tried a lot of AV and i feel some heavy during working. Bitdefender is the only one that plays well with my work softwares. thanks to its work profile. it is a very good option.
How does this work? Running a full screen application is usually an indicator for AVs to start the gaming mode. How does other profile mode works for Bitdefender?
Battery mode when the battery is low (postpone updates and other tasks)How does this work? Running a full screen application is usually an indicator for AVs to start the gaming mode. How does other profile mode works for Bitdefender?
I see. That's good enough. In general I think it's not really a CPU/IO heavy AV something like Windows Defender which suffers from high CPU usage during startup of applications and while doing moderate to heavy tasks. But anyway, the profile concept of Bitdefender sounds nice. Do you keep it turned on? (oops! that's almost a naughty sentence, lol).I think they have a known applications list for each profile.
