Bitdefender Internet Security 2009


I have installed Bitdefender Internet Security 2009 (italian), it worked fine for a few hours.

After a PC restart, on demand scanner doesn't work anymore.

If I try to start it to perform a complete scan but I get an error, something like "error in initializing scanner" (I have tried to translate from italian).

I have tried to remove Bitdefender and reinstall it again, but after a few hours I get the same error.

How can I do?

Thank you

    What OS do you have ?

    Fortunately I solved! I followed these steps:

    1. Removed Bitdefender IS 2009

    2. Deteted remained folders

    3. Cleaned all about Bitdefender in windows registry with a cleaning tool

    4. Reinstalled the program.

    Now the scanner works! Maybe the problem is due to some entries in windows registry (I think so because I tried many times to uninstalle and reinstall but it's the first time I clean the registry). I can't see any reason for this, but the important thing is that now works.
