    Access the link and when the window with the BitDefender file appears, please choose the "Save.." option. Save the tool on the PC, run it and restart the computer when prompted.

    Please let me know if you need any further information.

  • Hi,

    I have uninstalled v2009 and installed v2011 but I get the message that the installation failed "error -1002". What can I do? in particular that I do not dare to connect to the internet with my computer again as I have no protection at all at the moment.
