    The biggest concern for me is updating. I noticed lots of disk activity during update. Seemed like it scanned the whole database to determine what to update. And it did this every single time?!

    I have ssd and it did not cause slowdown but still...

    So I had database 29. December 2016

    Started VM and after some minutes, BD began updating.
    At first, the disk usage was quite high for ~20 seconds (Samsung 850 Evo, 250GB)

    Then it started downloading and remained ~1MB/sec write/read

    Finally, while installing? it juped back to 10's of MB/s (for around 15 seconds again)
    BDF3.PNG

    Conclusion: They surely should improve it in some way. CPU usage during all that time was around 50% too (2 core). I wonder what a normal HDD would do in such case...
    Of course this is huge database update (12+ days), but I see it more or less with every update.

    I think not, remains the same GUI, the same in resources, RAM usage...

    I think it is below average, probably you wont find as strong protection using lower system recourses.

    I dont remember exact RAM usage, but I noticed my system was a bit slower when I had Avast Free installed some time ago.
    I had Behaviour Shield activated though, which Bitdefender doesnt have.
