I'm trying it out, is there anyway to optimize Bitdefender so it uses as little RAM as possible? can be very heavy at times with 180-320mb of ram, jumping to near 800mb when scanning
Despite that Bitdefender is known to consume lots of RAM, nearing 800MB when scanning is too much. I would assume it's a bug or memory leak.

Are you seeing system impact or is your system running well and BD is just using a lot of RAM? And that is a LOT of RAM, but if your system is running smooth and you have plenty of RAM I wouldn't worry about it. Every time I've used BD I've seen a big impact on performance and my machine is pretty powerful.

RAM is there to be used. it is the fastest thing on your pc and it doesnt break as fast as a processor or hdd/ssd. if a program use more ram but is lighter on the machine its a well coded programm. but a program that uses less ram and use more cpu its just bad programing in my opion.

Well unfortunately it can be program's fault on not being optimized. There is no way solution at all except using Process Lasso (as mentioned) to control the responsiveness from high CPU usage/RAM usage.
