Firewall Disable After Update

Options

To Bitdefender :


I am a happy user of Bitdefender IS 2009 after upgrading from 2008.


Today I like to highlight a bug from the software. I did not turn on my PC (AMD Phenom 9850, Window XP home) for 2 days, after which Bitdefender IS give a warning that my update is more than 1 day old.


I activate fix and the program proceed to update, after which the program turn green or ok for brief moment before showing a msg. " Bitdefender need to turrnoff for an update".


I thought everything would be automatic, so I just continue to surf for around 10 mins. noticing the bitdefender icon still in warning mode.


I decided to check on the problem and found my firewall disable. I try to fix the problem but was not successful until a reboot did the trick.


This might be a small problem but come to think of it with the firewall disable what dangerous attack from hackers ( unsafe site ) could have done on my PC is unimaginable.


Hope Bitdefender staff is able to rectify this bug. Overall a happy user of BDIS 2009. Keep up the good work.

    G'Day Ronald,


    Read this and see if it helps you, http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showtopic=11751


    Other issue maybe that you still have other Security software installed which is causing BD not to load correctly.


    Also un-check the Malware scan option which is more than likely the reason for your /!\ warning, but remember to perform your own Deep Scan regularly!
