I'm also getting the "'Failed to communicate with the BitDefender Security service!'
Also it shows:
Computer IPs: no networks detected
Gateways: no gateways set" error.
Will installing BitDefender 2011 over 2010 fix the problem? I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and BitDefender 2010 Internet Security.
In order to fix the issue you have with our Firewall, I would recommend you to upgrade for FREE to BitDefender 2011. Before giving you the steps you need in order to upgrade, I need to know if your system is compatible with our new released version.
If you want, you can send me a PM with a Screen Shot with your system configuration or just tell me your general hardware specs (CPU, RAM, System Type...).
In order to see your system configuration, right click on the MyComputer icon present on your desktop and choose Properties.
How to take a Screenshot:
1. When the window is on the screen please press the "PrintScreen" key ("PrintScreen" is located at the top of the keyboard, at right. At this step we can not see anything, as the picture is copied into Windows's clipboard);
2. Open a graphic editing application (We recommend using the standard Paint program, that comes with every Windows installation (Start > Program > Accessories > Paint));
3. Paste the picture in a new Paint document;
4. Save the file in JPEG format.
I've went ahead and upgraded both my machines to BitDefender 2011 and they are both running fine. Thanks for the help though. I appreciate it. Now if only I could sort out my .NET 4 and Quicken 2009 issues. But thats for another forum.
I am glad to know that you upgraded to BitDefender 2011. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions or concerns.
I also have a similar problem. I installed BD Internet Security and the thing wouldnt update and kept telling me that a scan was already in progress when there wasnt anything going on. So i uninstalled and reinstalled. NOW my firewall wont enable. Updated fine, all that other stuff. When I click fix all it says is failed. I try to manually enable firewall and nothing happens. I had contacted someone about the updating problem previously and no one responded. So here goes my second problem. Can somebody please help me with this? I didnt pay $75 dollars to have half of the security I need. I am currently running Windows Vista, and everything is updated. No other Security installed and Defender and Windows firewall is disabled.
Did you install BDIS 2010 or 2011? You are posting in the 2010 forum.
Awaiting your reply,

Yes I am well aware I posted this in the 2010 forum. As I am running BDIS 2010 I figured this was the best place.
OK, but I don't believe the developers are issuing updates to any 2010 release. Have you considered upgrading to the 2011 version? As long as your hardware meets the minimum requirements you can upgrade for free. You can find the details in this pinned topic.
Okay so I did all of this, and now I have Bitdefender Internet security 2011 on my computer. NOW when It askes for my cd key, I assume I need to use the old one from 2010, I do this, and it tells me its already being used with another program. Now what?
I am sorry, getting too ahead of myself. It was simply for further upgrading, I actually didnt need, it. Just finalizing things now and setting up. Thanks for your help.
No problem. Now that you have BD 2011 installed, remember to post any new topic in the 2011 forum rather than adding to this topic in the 2010 forum.

I just now upgraded to Windows 7 and I seem to be experiencing the same problem with BitDefender Internet Security 2010. Can you please email the same fix procedure? I googled a previous post on this forum for a patch but BitDefender flagged the download as a trojan.

Hi Mars and welcome to our forums.
Does your machine meet the system requirements to run Bitdefender 2012?
Si eu am aceeasi problema. Imi puteti trimite, va rog, procedura magica de reparare?
Am instalat BIS 2011 (singurul pe care l-ati facut compatibil cu sistemul meu, Win XP x64). Mai precizez ca am toate update-urile la Windows, deci si cele de securitate.
