Unable to access the Internet via HTTP

I am on Bitdefender Security - part of the Netgear Armor product - just installed (as an attempt to solve a problem with Total Security 2021).

The problem remains. The same behavior discussed on other posts/comments. NO HTTP traffic is allowed, even to a local NAS server, even. What's odd is that this problem is only on one Windows 10 PC, and only on one user profile of that PC. I can log in to another account on same PC and I can go anywhere on the Internet.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Bitdefender, and have tried the steps recommended: 1) disable firewall... no change; 2) disable Encrypted web scan... no change.
Please advise.


  • I am having the same problem on my Mac. I installed Bitdefender three days ago and now Chrome and Safari don’t work. They initially work and then stop loading new pages, although already open pages continue to refresh, and the app needs to be force quit.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
