Anyone else have BD going ballistic today?

Mine's suddenly telling me it's blocking viruses left right & center when I had no issues prior.

I am currently scanning with malwarebytes.

Since an Update it's telling me I've "FakeAlert.5" in mostly every file?!

That's impossible.

It's telling me that BitDefender's own .dlls and such are viruses.

Along with numerous other essential files in system32 and syswow64.

Update is definitely botched. Until its fixed, turn off your realtime protection to save your own computer from deleting itself to death.

Hello all,

Please provide the exact detection name and the file location.

Also if possible please send me by PM a sample file.

This is happening to me, too. EVERY file that is trying to run is getting quarantined. Windows Explorer and even Bitdefender update itself is being quarantined. Someone really screwed this one up.

I'm getting this too. Before I could shut off BitDefender it quarantined most of my system, including BitDefender itself!

What do I do? Most programs do not work. The computer barely booted (did some kind of repair first).

How do I unquarantine the files without BitDefender?

HELP!

File C:\Windows\System32\de-DE\ws2_32.dll.mui

Date: Saturday, 20. March 2010 17:00:01

Virusname: Trojan.FakeAlert.5

Action: Moved to Quarantane

(I've the german version so...tried to translate it)

Same for

C:\Windows\System32\de-DE\audiodg.exe.mui

C:\Windows\System32\de-DE\dwm.exe.mui

C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvstres.dll

AND now the funniest thing:

C:\Program Files\BitDefender\Bitdefender 2010\vsserv.exe

Action: blocked

I deactivated my antivirus now...

this is ridiculous. We paid for a program to protect our computer, but it instead obliterates our system from the inside. Literally.

Trojan.FakeAlert.5

Both computers after last update.

So many system files moved to Quarantine (where is Quarantine? can't find it) I dare not restart my PC since it will not boot again since windows installer is one of the files blitzed.

Example

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US\msxml3r.dll

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US\netcenter.dll

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US\main.cpl

explorer.exe

wermgr.exe

C:\Program Files\Bitdefender 2010\updatepatch.exe

Way to many to pull off.

Mine is doing the exact same thing as well. This is very frustrating. . .

A quick fix for this would be much appreciated.

Any quick fix won't work since it quarantines the update exe

The same problem here on my PC:

Around 50 Files are moved to Quarantine.

Reason also: Trojan.FakeAlert.5

Because my PC didn't respond well i tried to reboot it.

Now it doesn't start anymore because of missing system files.

Is there a chance to move the files back with the Rescue CD?

Or what is the best way to get my PC running again?

ROFL!

Sorry...but it's kind of funny...

I'm so happy, that it quarantied only 3 system files for me, before I turned it off....

I tried to play them back...but they are still existing...

I hope it's working on restart...

Isn't it possible to unquarantine the update.exe and turn off the virusscan before?

Are you guys on Windows 7 64bit? The same thing is being posted on the German forum and that's the thing they have in common.

Yeah, this is what I did. I restored all files that weren't already restored automatically, turned off AV, and now I'm playing the waiting game for an update.

My PC is Vista 64-Bit.

There is a German Forum?

Then I will look there.
