I happened to notice Endpoint Security Service using 25% of my CPU constantly. Basically maxing out one of my 4 cores. This was on Friday - I rebooted thinking it would take care of the issue.
Today I noticed all web browsers were really sluggish and also saw Bitdefender at 25% usage - no disk or network activity also. Tried a reboot again. Still the same thing. It wasn’t doing a full scan or anything. Just 25% CPU usage, so in some kind of loop. I let that run for a while and took care of some things. Came back and it was still running. So since I have no settings within Bitdefender that I can look at and I can’t kill the process I uninstalled / reinstalled Bitdefender to resolve the issue.
Going forward - are there other ways to fix this issue? I’m a little worried other people are having this same issue so will set up some CPU monitoring alerts in Syncro to see if others have this issue. Hopefully I’m the only one though as that will be a lot of systems to fix.
