Bitdefender VPN: Windows Software
If you need a secure vpn service for Windows, then look no further! Bitdefender provides a VPN that is highly optimized and includes some optimization tools like One Click Optimizer, Start-up Optimizer and Disk Clean-up. Just a simple click can optimize the device under One Click Optimizer. Disk Clean-up is able to clean unnecessary files stored in drives like cached and temporary files. These files increase the disk space without any benefits, cleaning them would not cause any issue.
Start-up optimizer will make the PC boot faster by blocking the unwanted applications that start when the system starts. Some of this software requires a start-up service because it performs some operations that can only be applied on start-up so don’t close them.
