While monitoring the download in the Steam App I noticed that my max speed was half my bandwidth.
To verify whether this was hardware, software, my ISP, or the Steam servers I booted up my secondary PC which does not have Bitdenfender and tried downloading the same game from Steam and found I was getting my full speed. Going through the Bitdefender forums again, I found that running the Bitdefender "Repair" would be my next step.
As soon as I installed I noticed the time it took my browser(s) to load a webpage (tested sites several and used as a reference) went from immediate to taking between 10-15 seconds.
I check forums and the Bitdefender site and applied some changes to the firewall (setting to "stealth" mode and un-checking port blocking).
Bitdefender Quick Scan takes full advantage of the "in-the-cloud" scanning service and is capable to detect active malware in less than a minute, taking just a fraction of the system resources needed by a regular virus scan.
More on Whenever you need a quick check or a second opinion, such as before logging into your favorite game, when using your bank account or buying something online, use Quickscan, directly from your browser.
Upon re-booting I noticed it took my PC an extra 30 sconds to reach my Windows desktop - quite a change from the normal 5 seconds.
