2017 highjack issues
As this is my first post to the forum, please forgive my lack of protocol. It appears that my security suite keeps getting altered. Or I could be paranoid, either way, something seems off. I have been having issues with my system for months. I have reinstalled my OS so many times it's ridiculous. I believe I have a nasty rootkit buried in the registry. I have formatted the drive and upgraded many times, each time, the problem returns. I have used the rescue cd to no avail. This last time, I installed win7 clean, then bd 2017. Things work well for a while, always getting system clean. Then I will get greyed out or simply non functioning. I ran aswMBR which gave me a yellow code service bdfwfpf c:\program files\common files\bitdefender\bitdefender firewall\bdfwfpf.sys **LOCKED** 5. Not sure what that means if anything at all. Also keep getting a pop up about elevation something or another. Can anyone please advise me on how I should proceed.
