Same problem here and after playing with the bitdefender support team
they emailed tha " a fix will be available soon".

It was two months ago...

They also confirm the problem is about the kernel...

I don't think to have to low my defences for a buggy piece of software,
so I stopped using bitdefender until they will fix it , but I wonder if
it will ever happen.

In the while it seems they are releasing version 8 but I cant' see the
free version

Take your own conclusions...

Best regards
