I Can't Play My Online Fighting Games. How Can I Fix This?

I installed Bitdefender and a new update rolled up.

Since the latest update, my games have gotten disconnected or crashed.

I have tried everything that comes to my mind (Gaming profile, adding exceptions, etc..).

I am at a loss here.

Can somebody help me?

  • Hello. 

    I did all the things in the guide. 

    I didn't work.

    What the hell is happening with the program? 

    The only thing that worked was LITERALLY uninstalling it. 

    Somebody help me please or I will have to stop using it. 

  • too many fooling around, .. just say it, Bit defender is not made/ compatible for gamers, ..

    we want protection and be able to play games, not waist time fixing the anti virus, damm I just paid for it full protection for a year, ..!!

    there's not eve an option to say that the file detected as a threat is not harmfull, or pause the protection so we can play games in peace, ..!!

    I just got a year subcription and it fells like a not good start, ..

  • Hello,

    Have you tried to add the game .exe as an exception for the Advanced Threat Defense module? This would be a place to start and you can follow the steps described in the article below to set this exception:

    The antivirus does not have a "kill switch", however, its security modules can be temporarily disabled for troubleshooting purposes. In the event the Advanced Threat Defense is not the culprit here, you can disable the remaining defenses and check if the game can be played as expected after each deactivation. Don't forget to reactivate your defenses once the troubleshooting process is done:

    Apart from this, the Game Profile does a good job silencing the notifications and optimizing the system performance for gaming, but when it comes to threats, the antivirus will still be on alert for suspicious behaviors and will block applications if they perform threat-like actions. This might be the case here and you can read more about the Advanced Threat Defense module and its advanced heuristic methods of detection in the article below:

    Based on my previous experience, this is the first module to check in the scenario you have described.

    Let us know how it goes.


  • Hello Alexandru.

    Thank you very much for your opinion and for trying to help with the issue. But please see this:

    1) I added all my fighting games and online games to the exceptions. No changes.

    2) I turned off all the modules and tried to play. No changes.

    3) I activated gaming mode and tried to play. No changes.

    I did all those things and the problems persist. The only thing that worked was to UNINSTALL the program.

    I paid for the program and I have been a faithful user of the brand. But I have been dealing with this for months and things don't change.

    This is beyond infuriating.

  • Hello @Solx,

    If the basic troubleshooting steps have been exhausted with no change in sight, then it's time to let the engineers handle this. Maybe an incompatibility appeared after the latest updates, we can't be sure. Head to the link below to choose the desired contact channel:
