No dont use an anti virus, use your brain. Dont download from places that claim to give you "Free" paid apps, just use your brain

You can open bit defender, go to Protection > Settings under AntiVirus > toggle the Bitdefender Shield and select a length of time you want to disable it.  You can always re-enable it after you are done gaming.. if you remember... but I personally use Bit Defender and have zero issues with it causing FPS drops in game, so sounds like something else at work.

Yes you need anti-virus. However, it does not necessarily need to be running all of its functions while you are gaming. Say, for example, there is a rootkit scan (or any form of scan running). Go ahead and cancel that. That will use at least 20% of your CPU time and will kill your gaming experience. Also, if you have hardened mode on (or something like hardened security mode) go ahead and turn that off during gaming. 

One thing to realize with gaming mode is that it only turns off notifications and uses less CPU time, not necessarily giving up a lot of CPU time to games, but maybe 2-5% tops it lets go (so the AV would still have 15% or so). 

This all being said, try setting the priority in task manager, for your game, to above normal. That actually helps smooth out a lot more things than you would think.

Doesn't work that way. You can be the most secure person ever and still get a virus. Malware has gotten to the point where it can hide in ads or certain HTML elements and self install using a script.

A: dont illegally pirate games.. we will roast you for it.. let the roasting begin

 

B: this is probably where your problem is coming from in the first place, not Bit Defender.

Yeah.... that's your problem. Uninstall those games that are torrented, download and run Malwarebytes, then run a AV scan on your system.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

This is probably why, there is higher chance to have malware in the game installer or the crack installer. If you are not willing to buy a game, you will spend money on anti virus? I have malwaresbtyes premium and I don't see any performance differences.

It will find positive for any game crack, for him to continue he need to whitelist it which kinda defeat the point of it.

Bad advise, you still can get inflected from without downloading anything.
