    so i tried to get a support from bitdefender team with an issue i had with my AV and they said i have to uninstall Secuna PSI and IObit Advance System Care so get the full benefit of bitdefender AV since security programs might cause conflicts!

    well i got to say, i never knew those 2 are considered security softwares... anyone else feel the same way? :)

    If by security application, they mean an application that checks your system for out dated applications, then I suppose they're right, because you'll reduce your attack vectors.

    But, security application in the strict sense of the word? I'd say no.

    Does BitDefender AV have a similar functionality? That may be why it says it will conflict.

    As far as I know Advanced System Care has an antimalware engine I think that is the problem...

    Bitdefender support team will always be same. According to them every other software can conflict with their soft. Please follow their instructions and I am sure your problem won't be solved (That's not my wish but that happens).

    yes i have noticed that. before bitdefender i had GDATA and Trustport installed and both of them in my contacts with them always mentioned this as "Its better if you remove other security programs" but i dont think these guys will even reply to my ticket if i dont remove those first...
