About a month+ back, the BitDefender site had a problem that caused the
BitDefender update to hang. Every hour another update would start and hang.
I saw one system with +450 hung bdc processes. Commenting out these two
lines appeared to fix the problem but you lost the logging of the updates.
The BitDefender site was fixed after a few days so I think it may now be
safe to take these comments out.
