Thanks for the reply Mirabela. I will reply in email and in the ticket that has been opened. Still have to recover the partition with BD installed and may have the time next week.Hi Raul,
Having more than one security product installed on the same PC will cause incompatibility issues and the normal action of either one of them is not guaranteed.
In time they start scanning each other’s files, blocking them and the system will slow down or even crash.
Even if they are turned off, there are some active processes running or drivers loaded in the background.
That is why we recommend running only one security solution on a computer.
A slow boot may indeed be caused by the anti-malware processes/drivers that try to load at startup. Usually security solutions processes are written to load amongst the first at startup. If there are 2 or more processes, there will be a conflict between them when trying to start.
Thus a test with several security solutions installed is affected and can be considered inconclusive.
In order to check this specific situation, please reply to the opened ticket that you have with our support team. Also, let's please move this discussions on the Bitdefender forum. If you are encountering issues trying to access the forum, please send us your IP (via the opened ticket) so we can check it and pinpoint the exact cause of the situation.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Have a wonderful day!
