Updates deleting custom scans

Something odd is happening with my Bitdefender Antivirus Plus updates.

On Feb 19, 2024, the app updated itself, a pop-up appeared telling me that that Bitdefender had finished updating. I later noticed that my custom scans had been deleted and had to create them again.

Today, Feb 20, 2024, same thing happened. Bitdefender updated itself (same as yesterday, with a pop-up stating the update had finished and Bitdefender was now running the latest version). Again my custom scans were gone.

I checked the version number of my Bitdefender installation: 27.0.30.136

Then I checked the latest version here: www[dot]bitdefender[dot]com/consumer/support/answer/32196/

That page states the latest version is 27.0.27.130.

I have two questions

1) Why are my custom scans being deleted?

2) Why do I have a build number greater than the latest version?

Any help is much appreciated

  • I too have the exact same issue on both my laptop and desktop. Both of my custom weekly scans got deleted and I have the exact same version. This is the 2nd issue with Bitdefender in the last month or so. It's getting to the point that I may have to choose another security suite. This is ridiculous. The other issue that has happened is that scans (when they were scheduled), don't start on time unless I reboot my computer.

  • I've noticed that all my anti-virus settings get reset when I reboot my machine. Everything's fine until I switch off at night, the next day I switch back on and custom scans are gone. Guess I'll just have to wait for them to fix this...

    The issue has been already fixed and it will appear on the next update.

  • It's extremely annoying to have to create my custom scans and define my settings again every day, any idea when this fix will be pushed?
