Why Does Bitdefender Keep Blocking Multiple Unrelated Sites?


I recently updated my system (Windows 7) with Bitdefender 2011. Since this update, I've been regularly getting this messages on different pages:

"This web page has been blocked by BitDefender Antivirus Real-time Protection!"

It is blocking obviously not virus filled sites such as Google and Yahoo. It also blocks sites like Deviantart. After a few refreshes, the sites usual return to normal; sometimes you need to close and reopen the tab.

Is there anything I can do to get it to stop doing this?
