    Is there a way to pass command line parameters to Bitdefender Antivirus Free in order to scan specific files or folders from a script/batch file?

    Protection Shield on or off = BD AV on or off. That's it. One either likes it or finds an alternative.

    So this will turn off real-time scanning? I must say I kinda like this simple style AV, how is performance? I don't think I will be using it myself, but perhaps I can recommend it to others. Personally I don't really trust AV's anymore.

    It's a good free product but no settings other than On/Off. I used it for a month and liked it but it cut my wifi several times, and its SSL scanning sometimes blocked safe sites on Firefox (if I remember correctly). Its scans are quick and it's generally fast overall. A little heavy on RAM but no big deal. Overall, I liked it but for the above reasons. Back to WD for me!

    Last time i used it was about 2 months ago, at that time i had a slow computer boot time and webpages loading too slow so i stopped using BD free.
    Meanwhile there are bugfixes done so i don't know if its better now.....

    More than likely, the bugfixes don't improve performance.
