Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
I see a lot of people complaining that their PC/laptop slows down or even completely stops responding when they run a virus scan or a deep scan on Bit-defender. There is a simple fix to this. All you have to do is change a few things in the scan properties section on Bit-defender as shown below.
First of all you have to get into "Expert Mode"
By default, Bit-defender starts in to "Novice Mode"
Click on Settings as shown in the image below
Next, click on the small arrow next to novice mode and select "Expert Mode" and then APPLY
The new window that open is "Expert Mode" :)
Now, Click on AntiVirus, then Virus Scan. Right click on 'Deep System Scan' (or any other type of scan that is giving you the problem) and select Properties.
In the 'Properties' Box make sure that the 'Run the task with low proirity' is CHECKED !
Apply the settings and close all the windows. Bitdefender wont take up all your Laptops resources when it runs a scan.
