Product update to 18.104.22.168 causes VMware connection issues and Explorer crashes.
I am using Internet Security 2019, I was updated to build 22.214.171.124 in mid June and since then I have had drops in internet connection, Windows Explorer freezing (and requiring a reboot to fix) and VMware Player is not able to connect to the internet at all. I have used Macrium Reflect to go back to the previous build of Internet Security 2019 and everything works fine until BitDefender updates itself overnight and I am once again unable to connect. I am using Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates, I am also using the latest version of Google Chrome and the latest version of VMware player. This is really frustrating as I'm moving home and my reliable workstation is suddenly having all manner of issues. I have tried uninstalling but letting BitDefender reinstall as part of the removal process, that didn't help, I have also tried a complete uninstall and fresh reinstall, again no help. The only way i have been able to fix my problems is to uninstall completely and not reinstall - annoying as i only recently came to the end of my two year license and purchased a new 3 year license that i'm now unable to use.
