  1. This does not stop BitDefender from automatically updating, at least for a few minutes or until the system restarts. What a ridiculous answer. When people ask a question like this, they expect a reliable solution.

  2. How can I permanently disable Bitdefender from checking updates? I want to manually update it every time rather than it telling me to do it. Until system restart is the final option for me for now, but I need auto update to be disabled permanently.
