Great, I just had to reinstall Windows 10, because of a broken BitDefender!!!
After I rebooted my PC and logged in, Windows Explorer would suddenly start to flicker. I disabled all Autostart items, with no success. I rebooted into Safe Mode to uninstall BitDefender to see wheather it was causing the issue or not, but I could not uninstall it. After hours of wasting time, I decided to reinstall Windows completely.
Well, right after a fresh install, the first thing I installed was BitDefender Total Security, and rebooted. Guess what, the flickering started again. This time, I was able to uninstall it in Safe Mode. Rebooted -> Flickering didn't occur anymore.
Never ever - BitDefender! (Cool, it even rhymes)
We are happy to announce that the Security widget will be making its return to our Bitdefender products!
Soon, very soon actually. In Q1 of 2021.
Although it is making a return, it'll also get a visual revamp and some under-the-hood changes.
Here is a preview of what it will look like once it's back:

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of Bitdefender Total Security, and right off the bat I'm off-put by the atrocious new UI. But what's especially disappointing is that it seems as though the Security Widget is no longer available. Is this really the case? Or is it just hidden really good?
I thought your product was supposed to keep customers safe from online threats.
So do you think it is acceptable to take money from a Paypal account with no notification beforehand or afterwards?
Even if the answer is yes to the previous question, is it alright to take an automatic payment 209 days before the subscription expires?
Do you think it is acceptable to charge £49.99 for renewal when I can buy a one year contract on Amazon for £20? That's a great reward for customer loyalty!
Your auto-renewal policy is a disgrace and you should be ashamed of yourselves. Your company is little better than the scammers your product is designed to protect customers from. I expect an immediate refund of my (7 month) premature subscription.
