    Bit of an update, I now have Bitdefender 2017 Antivirus Plus as it was in a sale at the time.
    @Barman58 I read your last post and I would be interested it know what settings you specifically set on it.

    I basically set it up to defaults, added all my data locations (multiple partitions on multiple disks to the anti ransomware lists , did a full scan which came back clean, and left it to get on with it ...

    I have to sign in to the password manager each time on log in but this is the only regular interaction I have with the program
    I do get the odd notification and action it there and then - mostly adding applications to the Ransomware whitelist for access to data areas, (if it's a program on test I then remove I remove the authorisation when the program is uninstalled).

    I have also sometimes had a request to authorize a program through the firewall, and the odd notification that a website is bad in some way, ( mostly sites for research for others, or checks of links posted on the forums )
    If I download or otherwise add any files to the systems I always right click and scan them.
    I do the occasional scan of the full system as a backup to my other checks .

    and that's about it :)

    Hi Nigel

    Thanks for that. I did disable file protection as I found that a bit intrusive.

    Been using Bitdefender TS 2018 along with Malwarebytes since I've got an update from 2017.
    There is 1 annoyance, a known issue. After disabling safe files and/or ATD, it can occur that ATD can't be enabled again. Usually resolved by a reboot for me.
    Another issue I encountered was a BSOD, either caused by a conflict with Bitdefender and Malwarebytes or a small corruption in the kernel memory involving Bitdefender and Malwarebytes. As safety precaution I simply excluded Malwarebytes in Bitdefender and Bitdefender in Malwarebytes.

    That said, Bitdefender at its max can sometimes be annoying when developing apps, but I haven't really had other issues with either at max configuration.
