    Hello Psykokwak and welcome to the forums,

    Make sure you are accessing Bitdefender as an Administrator, not as a user - you cannot change settings as a user.

    OK, there was this post from Georgia to help a member with a similar problem-

    @king of 57 Most probably avc.xml from C:\Program Files\Bitdefender\Bitdefender 2016\settings is corrupt.

    Please replace it in Safe Mode with avc.xml from this folder: C:\Program Files\Bitdefender\Bitdefender 2016\settings\LGKC

    Then reboot the computer and check to see if IDS works as designed now.

    Thank you!

  • doesn't work either :(

  • I have the same problem... just started today.

  • if it cant run as admin , then you have to update it or reinstall it
