When running the Bitdefender Total Security Antivirus I do it with no other processes running. But it takes a lot of time to perform a system scan.
Whereas in Task Manager all other processes are at 0% of CPU, the Bitdefender process ("seccenter.exe") is running at 01%. Task Manager calls this priority "Normal".
In normal mode I am not allowed to change the priority. In safe mode yes. But when I reboot to normal mode the priority has gone back to normal.
I also tried changing the affinity so that the process would run in only one core (or two cores), but that didn't work either.
I have used the elevated cmd prompt: wmic process where name="seccenter.exe" CALL setpriority 128
128 is high priority and the cmd syntax requires the use of those quotation marks
I tried this both in normal mode and in safe mode without success.
Task Manager was always set to show processes from all users in order to recognize Administrator privilege and Bitdefender was clicked in order to show the "seccenter.exe" process. If seccender.exe does not appear in the Task Manager, the cmd will be invalid.
Although my objective is to get the antivirus to scan quicker, and any help on that subject will be greatly appreciated, I would also like to know how to change the priority in any specific process.
Thank you very much for all the help I may receive.
