Often when I plug in my usb stick, Win 10 asks me to format the stick before I can use it. Of course I didn't do that. I just re-insert the stick and it works fine. I think it has something to do with the USB receptacle being a bit loose.

Are you using the Safely Remove function or just unplugging it?
And/or did you check the box to automatically fix problems when it prompts you to check for errors?

Many of the antivirus packages are, by default, set to automatically scan USB drives and, if they are in active use, yanking them out will leave the dirty bit set.

i prefer kaspersky and malwarebytes, gives me less problems and is more secure, and both have a free trial that is easy to renew :p

There ought to be an option in BitDefender to stop current scan and/or disable the automatic scanning of USB devices.
