Incessant firewall allow/block prompts

I have a hard time believing no one else has had this issue, but I guess it's possible. Tried searching the web first, nothing of use.

My Bitdefender firewall will intermittently (between boots) prompt to allow or block something through the firewall. Even if I've already allowed that application a thousand times. What's more, it seems almost like clockwork - every other time my PC is rebooted, I get logged into Windows, and a whole new slew of allow/block prompts start coming up, only this time no matter how many times I click on Allow, it immediately pops up again with zero lapse.

This is maddening, it infuriates me, and I'd like to know what - if anything - I can do about this aside from ripping the program out and cancelling my subscription because overall the program just seems buggy as hell. It doesn't respect anything you set with regards to firewall rules, and there doesn't seem to be a way to allow the firewall to be on + connect to the PC via local address for things like NZB360.
