  • I am running Bitdefender 2013 with the 16.24.0.1682 build and I want to disable the antispam tool bar in my Outlook Express 2003. I am running Win XP sp3 I cannot find how to accomplish this since most posts deal with OE 2007 or 2010. I don't use the antispam features and BD is slowing down the closing of OE dramatically.…
  • Hello, Reboot required after every update. What is wrong? Same thing here! Is it time for us to do the Repair/Remove/Reinstall process again?

  • Since I first reported the problem I upgraded 2 of my computers to Windows 8 x64, the third still runs Windows 7 x64. Both Windows 8 computers are not having the reported issue with the latest build! Now, I am sorry to report that the Windows 7 x64 computer is still crashing when the context menu is opened on a USB stick!!…
  • Hello This issue was declare resolved on the latest build, 16.24.0.1682. Could you please tell me if everything is OK now? Changelog: http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?sho...st&p=164968 http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showtopic=35499 Thank you! Since I first reported the problem I upgraded 2 of my computers to…
  • I get no such problem. Why are you scanning your USB stick anyways? I have 4 USB sticks. All immunized and I never need to scan them. Its not scanning, maybe you want to see the properties or format the stick. Anyway, this has been an issue since the initial release of 2013. Christian had this to say on Oct. 7: "My…
  • Hello, A new build: 16.23.0.1637 Just got it. And.. Windows Explorer still crashes when using the context menu (right click) on a USB stick! I guess fixing that is not a priority for the BD developers.
  • Deja vu!! Christian posted on Oct.1 2012: "I am back! I was assigned to another project, some of my colleagues needed me. Everything is just fine and I will start answering to all your requests right now. Thank you very much for your concern. Have a wonderful week!" Can it be happening again?
  • OK. With so many user complaints, with so many different computers and continued through several version updates, this can't be an isolated problem! Are the Bitdefender developers working on a solution?? Anyone?? Since this affects the OS functionality for so many users, I would consider this a very high priority problem!!…
  • For one, you really need to start your own topic, it will never get answered buried in here. Try opening Bitdefender and go to Settings ...then Antivirus .... then the Exclusions tab and then scan usb devices and disable it and restart. I think we do need more help on the forums to ! Thank you! There is already a specific…
  • I hate to inform you, but Bitdefender is way beyond Beta Stage as it works just fine on every system that I've installed it on! I won't deny that there are a few "minor" quirks, but they are usually patched with the regular updates. The problems that some of you are experiencing, sad to say, are user related, due to lack…
  • I have upgraded 4 computers in the last 2 weeks. All 4 computers have the same issue. 3 are running Windows 7 64 1 is running Windows Vista 64 Hopefully this will be remedied in the near future. Thanks in advance ! OK. With so many user complaints, with so many different computers and continued through several version…
  • Same here. Antivirus Plus 2013 Version: 16.21.0.1504 Windows Explorer crashes anytime a USB drive right-click-program is attempted. Just upgraded from 2012 last week. Did not have this issue prior to the upgrade. I have had this same issue for the last 3 2013 versions on 2 different Win 7 x64 computers. Currently running…
  • Hi Chris, The printer is not working. I have a ticket, I sent the required information. I still wait. Fix the problem please. Regards Thinking Outside the Box: Has anyone reinstalled the printer software and driver on the affected computers? I recall having a similar issue some years ago using Kaspersky and all it took was…
  • Tried repair again and it hangs again at 65%. Something is wrong but BD support help is nowhere to be found.--ie no help at all. DAF44-Let me know if you have any ideas. As I said before, my desktop computer gave me the same error message you got when using the CHKDSK function. Like you, I suspected BidDefender and did the…
  • Hi, Trying to run repair and it is hanging for 35 minutes at uninstal-65%,, install 0% . How long did this procedure take for you? In my case it took like 3 to 4 minutes and a restart. It sounds like you could have more complex issues. Can you cancel the repair and then do a full uninstall and reinstall?
  • Hi I recently decided to go with bitdefender as the anti-virus protection on my new laptop. However, my new lap top came with a free trial of Trend Micro anti virus program. Before installation, bitdefender asked to automatically remove the existing Trend Micro program for me. After clicking yes, uninstall program took…
  • HI, I recently purchased Bitdefender Total Security 2013. I have installed it on the two of my windows pc's. Therefore I have one copy left. My question. I am upgrading my hard drive on one of the machines to an SSD. But want to know if I do a clean install of windows on this SSD will it use my 3rd and last license for…
  • I have the same exact issue! Same message when trying to do a CHKDSK on the C: drive. My BD product is Internet Security 2013, OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64. Update! Just did a BD Repair and now CHKDSK works again! It seems that doing a BD Repair every so often is a FAD (Functioning As Designed ) for BitDefender.
  • With BD Total Security 2013 installed i cannot run a scandisk (chkdisk) on my boot drive C. I get this message: Cannot open volume for direct access. Autochk cannot run due to an error caused by a recently installed software package. Use the system restore feature from the control panel to restore the system to a point…
  • Hi, I purchased a licensed installer of Bitdefender Total Security 2012 last March 2012 which is good for 3pc's and a validity of 2 years. I successfully installed it to my laptop, my wife's laptop and my sister in law's laptop as well. Recently i faced problem with my laptop wherein the autopilot mode of Bitdefender Total…
  • but what registration key do I use? do I use the old one from Internet security 2012?? Your active 2012 license will work with the 2013 upgrade!
  • I've been hearing about free upgrades, Is there a free upgrade from Bitdefender Internet security 2012 to Version 2013??? Yes there is! Read all about it here: http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?act...f=243&id=42
  • Christian, after reading more about BD Internet Security 2013, I decided to give it a try and not "downgrade". I just disabled the anti-spam feature and will not activate the parental controls. The installation/registration went smooth and everything is working as advertised. Thank you very much for your assistance! You…
  • To make a snow joke, I must be from Florida! I have been trying to add personal information in my forum profile but always get a "You are not allowed to use this part of the board" message. Maybe it is a Newbie thing!
  • Happy to exchange ideas and experiences, Columbo! Just to time stamp myself, my first computer experience back in my college days : IBM System 360 (1963) BTW, is it already snowing up in MN?
  • Actually, the DNS server is only used to translate the web address you choose to the IP address in the server you want to connect to. Any web data (up or down) and file downloads are coming from your chosen server not the DNS server. If the IP address is black listed by Norton (or Open DNS) you will not go to that web site…
  • Thanks again, Columbo. Here is why I use the Norton DNS service: Your pC needs a DNS service to connect to the internet anyway. Normally this service is provided by your ISP. Norton as well as Comodo and Open DNS provide a free alternative DNS service that can be configured to block sites that are known for malware,…
  • Thank you Columbo and Christian! The retail box Bitdefender software in question is a gift from my son and will not be in my possesion until tomorrow Tuesday therefore I don't have the license key yet. As soon as I get it I will PM Christian with all the requested data. The reason for my interest in downgrading Internet…
