It looks to be a free add-on with BD. It's a 'linkscanner' which sounds good, but sometimes such scanners can cause a small delay.

This will tell you how to disable it How to Disable bsserv , BitDefender TrafficLight Service

Do not download anything on that page, just follow the command instructions.

Hi

I realize i was misleading when i wrote trafficlight , because in BD free av it is called http scanner and since i do not think they are handled the same way when it comes to inactivation i have not tried the way you suggested when i found it myself some weeks ago .

Anyway , as you can see i have changed the headline .

But , if you know for shure that it is the right way and also works on the http scanner i may try it out . Do you , know for SHURE i mean ?

I have tried to find some info on this subject on the net and on BD`s forum with no luck .

I had BD free av before but i uninstalled it just because of the slowdown , it was to annoying .

Is it listed as automatic in 'services'? If it is, right click on it, choose properties, then set it to either manual or disabled and stop the service. Click Apply and OK.

I guess that is a no regarding my question .

As i said i do not have BD anymore so i can not check it out in "services" , but as far as i remember how it was when i had it it only had one service so there where no choices there .

Anyway , i have decided not to give it a new spinn even if it would be possible to exclude the http scanner because it is still very buggy i see when i surf certain forums on the net .

Thanks for showing some interest in the matter anyway !

Hmm , i am surprised you even suggests it since it have performed so very bad in the major tests over a long period of time now .
They have even been excluded from the test groups nowadays as you probably know because of that so i would not ever go there .

I would very much like to run avast but my pc say no , and it is the boss , unfortunately .
So i am running Avira now and i am quite happy with that/them because of the good test results .

But if BD can fix all their bugs and still have the excellent test results in the future , i will change to it .

Can free BitDefender and MSE live together happily?
That's the question. MSE works pretty well but it seems BitDefender gets high marks (everyone is assuming the free version is using much of the same engine found in the pay version - I hope that's true). I'd like to give it a try if they can work together without stepping on each other.
