  • Polymorphic viruses, I gave as an example, cloud technology increasingly are used in anti-virus programs, and there's nothing you can do. Yes, cloud technology is being used more but not for real time AV protection that I know of. It decreases the effectiveness of detection due to the nature of viruses since disabling AV…
  • Antivirus obliged to verify the checksums of files opened, to prevent contamination of polymorphic viruses. If you examine the system registry, you can find a server that communicates bitdefender, to analyze files. Here is a sample registry key, proactive module. I appreciate your reply but I see it as speculation,…
  • And the saga continues... 24/7 calling home with every opening of any program. An explanation would be nice.
  • I'm still hoping to get some sort of reply on this. Anyone? Here's another screen shot:
  • Like I said, and thank you for confirming Rohugh, MBAM does run nicely with BD on demand and real time both, though it wasn't always the case. I've been using BD since 2009 and have watched it evolve. For me right now, it is better than anything else I've tried, but I am concerned they are spreading themselves a bit thin.…
  • My thoughts: Dennis Labs also rates Symantec/Norton AV the highest, that's all I need to know about Dennis Labs. Next to AVG Norton is one of the worst. I fix computers for people that get infected and AVG is #1 for detection failure with Norton in a close #2. Bitdefender has been pretty good for the last several years…
  • Try turning off 'Anonymous Usage Reports'. In 2014 version it was found under Settings>General Settings>Advanced. Not sure about 2015 but it should be similar. Anyhow, that is most likely what is calling home. It also enables the cloud functions for realtime malware protection. So whenever you open a new file or create one…
  • Is there some difficulty with this question? Is this a program malfunction? Seems to me the only thing that should be calling home is the update service. What is all this other stuff?
  • Most of those IPs are being used by Vsserve.exe which is a module for real time protection. Maybe it's used to send data onto a server for future analysis? It's stranger than that, when I am not doing anything on my computer there are no calls home. However when I open a Word doc it calls home, when I open note pad, it…
  • What build of CCleaner are you using? Is it up-to-date from piriform or the filehippo mirror site? Reason I ask is I have used it for years, along with standalone Thunderbird (again which build are you using?) and never had any problems with Bitdefender flagging those files as infected. Disabling realtime protection isn't…
  • Rampant, I did send it for analysis. I called too and sent the captures a couple days ago... stridert It is a very odd scenario. And it is a temp directory with other files in it. registry.dill is the one it hangs on along with another one called FindProcDLL.dll I don't think sending the files is going to help as far as…
  • I have the same issues with BDAVPlus 2015. I even have auto update turned off along with safe pay, Wallet and ID theft protection. I set my firewall to block all "Call Homes" from BD with the exception of 'BitDefender Update Downloader' that only connects when I manually request new updates and this is what I get! What the…
  • That would be nice. Except they can't be turned off, even admittedly by Bitdefender themselves (I have that in writing). Sure you can, you click the X each time. That closes it in less than 3 seconds! lol But I get what you mean, it should be removed. So it's a trade-off. So, keep posting complaints and maybe they will…
  • You will find answer on this question here, just look at forum, 3 years old bugs like ghost traffic or black screen on Windows boot and similar bugs. I used both, and Kaspersky definetly have less bugs/problems. Clearly the ultimate way to check antivirus programs out is in their own support forums. I find BD slightly…
  • My my, everyone is so grumpy about something that really is pretty minor. I just want an antivirus! I don't need wallets, and firewalls and whatever other gimmick they come up with. I like standalone's! If it isn't antivirus I turn it off. Popups are annoying but it takes what, 3 seconds to turn it off or one 10 minute…
  • But my point is that a clean, well-written piece of software should be considerate enough to take care of that automatically . It has something to do with a little bit of respect for a user's decision not to use the funky-fresh-latest-and-greatest Wallet feature . Oh come now spacemarine, haven't you heard? We are mere…
  • If you don't want the wallet stuff to load during windows startup there is a way to prevent it. I have used CCleaner to disable the two entries that trigger it as attached. Thanks, Yea, I already did it with msconfig. Now all I want is for the "Last updated" notification to be restored.
  • I completely agree that this is quite annoying. I also have Wallet turned off. I just don't use it. The pwdmanui.exe and bdapppassmgr.exe should NOT be running. It is a really bad style of programming to leave processes running in the background that clearly only serve the purpose of providing a feature that has, in fact,…
  • One more thing, I really don't like that the "Last Updated" notification was removed. Why? What is it with all these companies that they want to hide all the program activities? It's like in many web mail services when you delete a message, it goes to trash and then only shows things in trash that haven't been read. It's…
  • Personally I have found the best method as follows: I posted problems with install on 28th August 2013 (and many years before that on all versions since 2009). I just tried your method and it worked perfectly. Thank you antikythera. Running uninstall tool in safe mode was the trick I hadn't tried yet. I think you should…
  • Hi shpshftr, Thank you for sharing your experience here. Could you let me know if the process hangs at the scan part? If so, download the full kit to that machine, <snip> Hi Georgia, Thanks for the fast response. It hangs on the install, the scan completes with no problem. I already tried the Full Kit offline with exactly…
  • I am having the exact same problem with Win7 32bit install and my 64bit install. If I uninstall BD, all is fine. It doesn't happen with BD2012. I have been able to test with my imaging software. You guys don't pay me enough to do this, think you tech gurus could find a solution?
  • Hello I analyzed those dumps, the reported issue is: Please update or reinstall the driver of your video card and make sure you have the latest version of DirectX installed. http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enh...ributable.shtml Take care. That fixed the BD problem, but the reason I had an older driver installed was…
  • Hello Could you please pack all the files from this folder and upload them on sendspace.com or mediafire.com? Post here the download link. Have a great week! As requested: http://www.sendspace.com/file/s4c2hr
  • Hello shpshftr, In some things I agree with you, anti- virus software should be protected your system and not to be substitute for a entertainment that could it fill the leisure. But you must be aware that this is the 21st century and to innovations in all areas, hence the anti-virus softwares couldn´t returned back. The…
  • Hi I think I have a solution for your case. As the new Bitdefender 2013 product suite was released, we would like to inform you that you benefit from a FREE upgrade to the latest version. Thank you. Christian, I started a new thread in Bitdefender 2013 Products/Installation. Got a BSOD on the initial install scan. It did…
  • Hi I think I have a solution for your case. As the new Bitdefender 2013 product suite was released, we would like to inform you that you benefit from a FREE upgrade to the latest version. Apart from the fact that the 2013 suite brings lots of new features and improvements, it will most likely solve any issues that you may…
  • Same problem here. Install stalls. hehehehe I have tried it on 3 different machines XPPro, Vista, Win7pro. The Win7 got the furthest and completed the download but during the install process it BSODed. So I returned to 2012 for the time being. I am rebuilding my Win7 install from scratch and thought I would give it another…
  • I am still having an issue after following the above instructions exactly. I am still getting: "The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: bdselfpr" but Trufos issue is no longer being reported. Also I have been having issues with BSOD since installing BD2012 when plugging in external USB, 1394, and…
  • Hello We are talking about 2 different things. I made that screenshot from Scan now -> Custom Scan area, you made it from Settings -> Antivirus -> Shield -> On-access settings. The Real Time Protection from Bitdefender 2012 automatically scans for rootkits and all classes of malware. Let me know if you have other…
