Easy way to find out.

Just delete every last vestige of BitDefender, and see if the issue is resolved.

Just turning it off does not insure that there are no software conflicts. Simply delete it completely. If the issue is still there, just re-install it, and we'll look for other possibilities. Since you say that this issue developed after you installed BitDefender, there is a good possibility that is the problem.

Bitdefender is antivirus right? You can return it and buy another av software. My dad used to work at CA, their stuff was pretty good. I don't remember it having any conflicts except for halo 1.
