Firewall Is Blocking Dynamic Tiles (windows 10)

The same issue as is or was in TS 2015. If I want dynamic tiles I must disable firewall. Is there any fix? Seriously I am thinking about refound. I am not satisfied with this product <img class=" />

    I don't have any problems with them and BIS 2015 (19.3.0.175). But I agree with you that dynamic tiles do not work with BIS 2016.

  • @urOk, check if these settings would fix the error:


    Bitdefender> Firewall> Adapters> Network type: Home/Office, Stealth: Off, Generic: On.


    If not, you can also try: Firewall> Rules> Show General Rules> Windows Explorer Traffic on HTTP: Allow

    Ok, but why BIS 2015 doesn't block them? I think that it's bug anyway...

  • Bitdefender has had this issue with Windows Live Tiles dating back to BD 2014.

    You have to allow HTTP traffic on Windows Explorer in Firewall Rules to get the tiles to work.


    Why this has never been fixed is a continuing mystery.

    On some systems, the Live Tiles just keep repeating the same screen over and over again, but they never update.

    Never heard about changing the firewall adapter settings. In the previous threads, the mods always recommended allowing Windows Explorer HTTP traffic in the firewall rules.


    Oh, and I stand corrected - the live tiles issue goes all the way back to BD 2013.... :huh:

  • "Windows Explorer Traffic on HTTP: Allow" - fixed it. Thx.

  • I think that this is not a solution but a temporary solution, because Bitdefender 2015 does not block live tiles, even if "Windows Explorer trafic on HTTP" is Deny. If this rule is the default in Firewall, I think that there should be no such conflicts with live tiles in Start menu :unsure:

    Bitdefender 2015 also had the issue. I experienced it personally, as did at least three other users: http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showtopic=55525 . Only setting Windows Explorer traffic on HTTP to Allow made the tiles work. If Live Tiles worked for you with BDIS 2015, great, but they didn't work for everyone.


    What I find appalling is that the same issue has been reported for Bitdefender Internet Security since at least 2013 and Bitdefender has failed to address it in each subsequent version up to and including 2016. It's really time Bitdefender stepped up to the plate and took care of this once and for all.

    BD 2015 v19 isn't fully compatible with Win 10. You need to upgrade to BD 2016. Many features are only on paper. I think basic malware protection is all that worked in v19.

    I don't think so. Ferewall, Web Protection, Real time protection are work, and work good! Where did you find that v19 isn't compalibe with Win 10? I think that v16 have more bugs then v15 now and when 16 version will be fixeded, only then I'll try it.

    I wish bitdefender found a way of allowing the tiles to work without messing up the general firewall security of the system.


    Could Bitdefender's researchers work on this request as many users have asked for a solution for long.


    Thanks!

    I agree with you. I think that there shouldn't be a problems with by default settings and Technical Support should fix it immediately!

  • Any reply from Bitdefender Team? Whet it will be fixed?

  • It is strange that not all the tiles are blocked and only some of them. I have Weather and New in Start Menu (for example) and Weather live tile works well, but News isn't.

    That's what Christian wrote about disabling "Windows Explorer traffic on HTTP":


    "The HTTP traffic is denied by default for Windows Explorer because some malware could inject into this process and all the data will be send to the attacker using this legitimate part of Microsoft Windows..."


    So this is not good to allow this connection in General Rules. And I hope that this issue will be fixed soon. ;)

  • How long Bitdefender will ignore this bug? I'm tired that News isn't work on my Win 10 in Start Menu!!

  • hey BitD team,


    with most of the other errors taken care of, could you put your resources on this feature/request please?


    maybe you do not use the feature of news and weather on your live tiles, but there are folks who do - like me.


    You have smart engineers.. couldn't you solve this issue, as its the most visible problem that is left. Please don't tell me to disable firewall features to work, I am not interested in lowering protection.


    There should be some solution.. perhaps whitelisting? You can figure it out...

    I open ticket to Support team and talk to them about this issue. I hope they fix it soon...

    Any Updates Vitalik / Georgia?

  • Any Updates Vitalik / Georgia?


    Still nothing but I wrote already in Support. Should be fixed soon I think...

  • Can anyone say, when it will be fixed?

    Haha!!

  • It seems that Bitdefender is not going to fix this issue, today Support said that this problem is because of Microsoft (that it's a bug of Win 10) , although the blocking of live tiles begins only after the installation of anti-virus ... <_<

  • I think we should wait (with patiently) some corrective fix.

    Fix from Bitdefender ;)

    It's being "fixed" since the release of Windows 8...


    Someone in Bitdefender really has to hate those tiles... :ph34r:

    Nope... it hasn't been working since October 2012, when windows 8 was released. Someone has been hard at work, fixing the issue since then. <img class=" />

    But BIS 2015 didn't block the live tiles, really so difficult to fix the same problem in 2016 version... <_<
