Antivirus Plus - Firewall Notification issue
Does anyone have issues with Windows Security Center (Windows 10) and message about Bitdefender Firewall?
In Security Center I have message: Actions needed in Bitdefender Firewall - Open Bitdefender Firewall. As I'm using Antivirus Plus, I don't have firewall included in my product.
Am I misunderstanding something or it's just a bug.
Have you tried just restarting the computer?
During the installation process, regardless of what product you have purchased, Bitdefender Total Security gets installed, and is only afterwards configured to Antivirus Plus. Perhaps the notification from Windows will clear after a restart.0
This started with the latest build 18.104.22.168.
Mentioned about this else where - "BUG - Constant disk read/write while Bitdefender is installed"
" The latest build also has a bug, mind you my Bitdefender is Antivirus Plus, which Windows 10 somehow think has a firewall function thus a warning "Action needed in Bitdefender Firewall". It seems Windows firewall is functioning but the Action Needed security icon annoys me."
Contacted [email protected] yesterday regarding this bug.
We have managed to reproduce the issue internally and have notified our development team about this error.

Is this related?
No, in this case there's a notification in the Windows Security Center that actions are needed in the firewall of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, but it does not have a Firewall.0
Confirmed the problem - Windows detect the Antivirus Plus as Total Security/Internet Security thus showing the notification - FIXED with the latest build update. The Build number is the same 22.214.171.124 but the last update at today the 16th.
Yes I can also confirm the Firewall Bug is fixed. Weird though, as bqpd points out, the version number has not changed, it's still 126.96.36.199, however the date has changed to 2018-10-16 03:01.
Just 2 more SIGNIFICANT bugs to fix before I can be happy with this product. Since I purchased Bitdefender Antivirus Plus a couple weeks back, it has been nothing but jumping from one bug to the next. Final 2 bugs for me are:
BUG - Constant disk read/write while Bitdefender is installed (although with version 188.8.131.52 I can at least eject external USB HD)
FactoryTalk Activation Service will no longer start with Bitdefender Antivirus Plus installed with all protection enabled, even if include exception for lmgrd.exe
Perhaps bad timing? To have purchased Bitdefender right at the same time that they released a buggy beta 2019 version to the public
