I believe it's hit and miss,
Possibly to aggressive to user interface which most aggressive av programs tend to be,
Blocking local programs because of a quirk in process might be as local as Internet explorer or live mail....

Re: BitDefender

I've only ever used their QuickScan:

Fast & Free Online Virus Scanner - Bitdefender Quickscan - requires a compatible browser.

Also I've never used an AV that didn't suffer from false positive issues at some point. In my mind it means that it's doing it's job. I never set anything to "Auto Quarantine" but rather "Prompt User To Decide"
