Question

BitDefender/Nod32 slow down my Chrome browser. What to do?

First I had Bitdefender Total Security and noticed that it slows down my Chrome browser. Then I uninstalled it and installed Nod32 ESS. Same problem again. It slows down google chrome.

Is there a way to fix this without compromising my security besides installing some other AV?

Answer
I'm going with no. Why?

Because any security suite that inserts itself between the web and browser will incur overhead as it examines content and more.

This is like a security guard at the gate checking each car or such.

Another AV might be faster by a smidge or if you tell it to "ignore the web" then you get no security?

-> How about my choice of security for web browsing?

1. Firefox or Chrome (sorry IE/Edge.)
2. Web Of Trust (WOT) and AdBlock+

It's simply effective and well if you decide to go to bad places, who's to blame?

What are you using?

Which browser do you use? AV? What's your internet speed on speedtest.net (does this have an impact?).
