|it just started running after i had Bit Defender installed and my cpu temp is up 15degees F over normal. Could barely get computer to boot up and once I disabled bdss.exe.......at least I could hobble on on over to Panda's online scan Using 45% cpu resources accordin to task manager. Apparently it's part of Bit Defender, but i've had BD installed for a week and only this morning did it become a problem. It seems that once i disabled bdss.exe things a re back to normal with this machine.Wreaked a LOT of havoc, so far. Anne|
|Takes a lot of memory Tom|
|It is part of the bitdefender antivirus suite|
|it is safe! patrick|
|it's BitDefender Scan Server; try disabling the virus shield(while offline, ofcourse). you'll see the CPU usage will return to normal. it scans all accessed files. even if you aren't doing anything it still scans files randomly. but it's still the safest antivirus+firewall IMHO. if this bothers you so much try NOD32. but you'll have to install a firewall then :) w-i-c-k-e-d|
|It is used in any antivirus or spyware software. It is safe but how can something so safe cause so much havoc? Needs to be refined. Parsival|

|Part of bit defender firewall, powerful component not for low spec computers, barely touched my resources and keeps me safe. If you disable it bit defender will not work properly. See also: Link th30r157|

|Part of BitDefender. Awesome antivirus but can use up alot of cpu. tipsy|

|A critical process required for BitDefender Antivirus to run, this process carries out realtime scanning of accessed files, so dont be alarmed if it chews up your CPU when you open files and programs. It is a harmless process, but it could cause your CPU to heat up due to it's excessive resource hunger. Asim Saleem|
|Hogs up CPU for over 10 seconds at 100% for things that use to happen instantaneously. More problem than a virus Bill S|
