  • I have also found some of these notifications irritating, though I haven't gotten them quite as often as some other respondents. I think the message from the community to the developers about not liking this current (default) behaviour is clear enough. To further encourage specific action, I would suggest now that…
  • A little digression, but I'm also not sure that it's helpful/necessary to show separate icons for each Contextual Scan report in the system tray. (Maybe this was a side-effect of wanting to not add to the taskbar?)
  • I think this mystery is mostly solved now. As mentioned, the Work profile is set (by default, I believe) to "Postpone Windows Automatic Updates". This morning, when I launched Zoom, I noticed a message coming up: "Work Profile We always have your back while working. The performance of your device was automatically…
  • Thanks for the detailed feedback! As a relatively new user, it has taken me a while to get my head around things like the Office Wi-Fi Profile and the Work Profile (which sound a bit similar, but turn out to be different). Thank-you for the support.
  • Here is the interface I was mainly referring to: I cannot see how to access the "Close" button from the keyboard. Incidentally, besides the desirability of being able to use the tab (or arrow) key to navigate between the "View log" and "Close" buttons, another desirable feature would be for a shortcut (underlined letter)…
  • Here it is: I think the Level 2 permissions kicked in a short while after the previous post.
  • Well, it might be an anti-climax after I already described it in words, but here goes.... .... ugh actually it's even more of an anti-climax than I thought. Apparently I still can't post "links" (including images) — you mentioned in another post that users need to be at Level 2 in order to do that.
  • Thanks, @mrmirakhur, @Gjoksi & @Scott. I'm open to the possibility that not everyone will share my view, although I still find the counterview surprising. So much so that I second-guess whether I made my suggestion clear enough. First let's talk about the motivation for the feature of scanning USB drives. I might be…
  • I hadn't replied for a while for two reasons: (i) being too busy, and (ii) observing such erratic behaviour that there was no straightforward pattern to describe. Earlier today I cross-posted to https :// answers.microsoft…
  • I guess a lot of victims of viruses "know" what's on their disks, "know" what's attached to the emails they've received, and "know" what they're downloading from various websites?
  • Incidentally — digressing a little — I am not keen on any applications (e.g. Excel, web browsers) being opened up without an explicit request from the user, with the exception of basic tools like Notepad. Below is the irritating and unwanted result of me clicking "Enter" a handful of times (not more than that) on the…
  • While the Public Wi-Fi Profile is documented, it seems that the Office Wi-Fi Profile and Home Wi-Fi Profile are not. Cf. bitdefender .com/consumer/support/answer/2062/ It's also an open question as to what happens by declining the pop-up. Logically I would hope that it should default to the more cautious ("Public")…
  • You could be right. I am still monitoring this.
  • It gets worse.... The trial version I downloaded was Bitdefender Internet Security (3 devices). Frankly I cannot remember whether that was an option I chose, or whether everyone gets the same thing, but suffice it to say that I really only wanted it for my laptop — i.e. 1 device. When I got the email, with the poor…
  • Thanks, Gjoksi79_. That does seem to work. As there's a support article on it, I probably would have eventually found it myself if I'd searched for it. The general theme of this discussion thread, however, is around user experience, and I would argue that it shouldn't be so difficult that the only way to accomplish it is…
  • Hi, again, all. I "bit the bullet" and purchased a year of Bitdefender Internet Security subscription (for up to 3 Windows devices). There were three other things that came up in this process. Well, unnecessary irritations, really. As a Trial User, I received an email a few days ago informing me that I only had 10 days…
  • By the way, does anyone know of a specific Event Log that would help to track what is causing the above setting to be silently changed in the background? I couldn't find it under Windows Logs\System Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\System Settings\Operational Applications and Services…
  • Thanks, Phil. It's good to hear of your similar experience. And with greater expertise than me, by the sounds of it :-) Thanks also, Alexandru, for considering the above feedback. It seems like the key differences are between the following: anti-virus applications and antimalware applications; applications that…
  • Next day, and now (after I declined to identify that source as my "office network") BitDefender has popped up a new message inviting me to set it as my "home network". I'm still not exactly sure what difference it makes, but I've gone ahead and accepted that invitation.
  • Bitdefender icons added to Thunderbird do not suit 'look and feel' of Thunderbird. In particular, the buttons are too tall and the icons are correspondingly too large. Original Thunderbird icons/buttons are on the upper row, added Bitdefender icons/buttons are on the lower row. —DIVERSE
  • On this topic, when Ransomware Remediation is enabled, I also wonder: are all files & folders protected, or just certain ones (e.g. in My Documents); could the combined size of maintained copies of protected files become very large (more than 1 GB and/or more than 1,000 files, say) — and, if so, can users set a cap on this…
  • Another issue: Following installation it seems that my device was not protected by Bitdefender, because the application had not been 'activated' by me signing in. However, the application never prompted me to sign in!!! It just sat quietly in the (compacted/hidden) system tray with a greyed-out icon, not alerting the user…
