    Is it supposed to take 13 hours to scan? I left it at 80% when I went to sleep last night. This is ridiculous. First time scan, installed BD last night. It literally just finished as I was posting this. http://i.imgur.com/WgziX7j.jpg

    Bitdefender had a rare reboot-required update today, June 14, which oddly did not result in a product patch or build up tic. It remains at 20.0.28.1478.

    As best as I can determine, only bdagent.exe (Bitdefender Agent aka Bitdefender ConnectAgent) and bdtl.dll (HTTP traffic scanner) received new versions.

    USA still the best. But barely.
    Just wanted to add I had maybe 3 critical problems with BDIS in 2yrs. First was downgrading from BDTS to BDIS. That was the most aggravating & took BD CS 7-10 days to fix. Second was upgrading from 2015 BDIS to 2016 BDIS. From 2015 to 2016 was a convoluted ridiculous procedure. Third one was my license was deemed invalid. The invalid license was the easiest problem to fix just a repair install an option offered when uninstalling BD fixed it. So my suggestion attempt a repair install first.

    Context Menu Scan - Under Actions - No Quarantine Option?
    Is it the same with On-Demand Scan i.e No Quarantine Option?

    This is the deal I took advantage of earlier this year:
    http://sharewareonsale.com/s/bitdefender-internet-security-coupon-sale
    3-PC One Year 19.95 USD
    Transaction was placed on a BD site and handled by Avangate.

    I waited until a 6-month free license was a week from expiring to activate on my tower. ($1.11 a month.) Then I installed/activated it on my laptop which was running BDAV Free.

    BTW, ganon11000 and ozOracle at WOT trust the site. What more could you ask for? :thumb:

    The official page is here
    http://www.bitdefender.com/support/bitdefender-2016-changelog-1672.html
    but it takes them a bit of time to post up the full details.
    Dates would be nice, too. But putting dates on Web pages or documents has long been an abandoned practice, so I won't ding BD too much for it.

    Sorin G. in the forum has been good at posting up the details. I've revised my #115 with the source. Which I should have done. Thanks.

    It is.

    I'm certain all those fixes (except for that first one for Windows 7) have to do with Windows 8.1 and/or 10. Mostly 10. :)
