Taskbar's pinned icons disappear if ...\Desktop\ directory is protected by Anti Ransomware

edited December 2016 in Protection

System: Windows 10 & Bitdefender AV Plus 2017




- At system startup all pinned taskbard icons are hidden. After unpinning one (by right clicking on the icon in the actual Start menu) and pinning it back restores all the other icons too.

- The issue occures if C:\Users\.....\Desktop directory is protected by BD's Anti Ransomware protection

This bug has been spoted almost a year ago:


I hope this will be fixed soon as Desktop can be very critical directory in terms of ransomware infection.
