Gary, what do you mean? We have to run the scan manually when Auto Scan is enabled?!?
My BDAV Plus 2011 was scheduled to run the Full System Scan automatically every day
, I never had such a problem.
BDAV Plus 2012 is supposed to be all about smart automation, so I expect improvements, not regressions.
Actually, my BDAV Plus 2011 was even configured to run the Deep System Scan daily, which included the boot sector and seems to have disappeared from BDAV Plus 2012. If BDAV Plus 2012 does not scan for rootkits anymore and if the scans are manual, I am much more exposed than with the previous version and I feel much less secure.
I ran the scan manually of course, but I do NOT want to do that manually every day or every 8 days when Auto Scan is enabled for that very purpose.
I understand that some new customers don't understand anything to antivirus and want an app that just "works," but there are too many behavior changes and things that have disappeared from the GUI for the sake of simplification, and without any form of notification or communication from BitDefender, including critical features such as scan scheduling, that we discover randomly after days of use. Not a happy papy. :(
I really would like to see an overview of the changes between 2011 and 2012 right now. This documentation is essential for existing experienced users and sorely missing.
BitDefender should also track how customers are using their products via usage logs or something, so they know the potential impact when they introduce a change in a feature and can address it better.
