      Bitdefender Forum Rules - Read carefully before posting   09/13/2016

      BitDefender Forum RULES (PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING)   First, please register with the Official BitDefender Support Forum if you are not currently a member (it is free). You will need to use a valid email address, and follow the instructions to validate your membership. Then you can post.   Click here to reach the registration page: Register   GLOBAL RULES   Welcome to the BitDefender Forum!   Please understand that once you have registered as a new user, you consequently agree with ALL THE FORUM RULES written below.
      These rules were designed to ensure you get the most from interacting with other users in a pleasant and constructive manner and to prevent any sort of abuse.   GENERAL RULES   1.
      First and foremost, this is a support forum for BitDefender. Do NOT post comparative tests for security software for they are unrelated to the main character of the forum. Also, the support process can take many forms: a troubleshooting routine is meant to locate the cause of the issue not offer a permanent solution –do NOT post replies in the form of "I need a fix now" instead of the information requested for without locating the cause there isn't any way to implement a fix.   2.
      Once an official position has been posted concerning a bug in BitDefender and the ETA for the fix, the topic will be closed down. Do not ask for the topic to be reopened unless you still have the bug after the update targeted to handle this issue.   3.
      Users that have reached a 50% warn level will have their posts subjected to moderator approval and if they continue to ignore forum rules their account will be banned.   4.
      Users are not allowed to use clones(using more than one account by a single person). Breaking this rule will lead to a permanent IP ban.   5.
      Users are not allowed to use anonymous proxy. Breaking this rule will first result in a warning, followed by subjecting the user's posts to moderator approval/banning of the account.   6.
      When reporting an issue concerning BitDefender make sure to offer the following basic information:
      - name and version of your BitDefender product;
      - name and version of your Operating System;
      - the complete error message (if any) that you receive and, if possible, attach a screenshot with it;
      - name of other security solutions that you are running;
      - when asking questions about (un)detected files (false alarms, or files that you suspect to be infected, but aren't detected), please attach a complete BitDefender scan log. Be sure to keep BitDefender fully updated so the log contains accurate info – on the support forum we only accept the posting of scan logs, for sample submission of false positive/false negative samples please upload them onto a web based platform where we can retrieve and analyze them.   7.
      Topics related to the lack of response from the support department need to be backed up by as much information as possible concerning the issue that you have been facing. When you send an e-mail to support a Ticket ID will automatically be created - make sure to mention it in the forum post for it will speed up the entire process.   8.
      Moderators do NOT offer support by PM. Do not send personal messages to moderators unless they expressly request it from your side/ you wish to have a closed topic re-opened/ you wish to report a forum member or topic for abusive language or spam/ you are unsure as to posting a possible solution and you wish to consult with a moderator first. All users are treated as equal on this forum and by sending a PM to a moderator you will not be entitled to faster support.
      In case of rule violation reports, you can also use the built-in Report button to announce all moderators that there's a topic/post/user that violated the posting rules. Please do NOT use this function to ask for help, or announce the moderating team that you need urgent support! As said, all issues are handled as fast as possible, and none has priority over another.  
      9.
      Any form of aggressive language, directed at other forum members or at the BitDefender Moderating Team or staff is completely forbidden. Continuous attacks will result in an account suspension or BAN.
      Also, any form of explicit, antisemitic or racial language, or social attacks (by images, text, PMs, signature, or any other form of communication on BitDefender forum) will NOT be tolerated and will result in an immediately account BAN.
      Please take into consideration that this forum a public place. Treat everyone else just like you want to be treated.   10. Users are not allowed to open polls on the BitDefender Support Forum. The only members that are allowed to open polls are the moderators.   FORUM SIGNATURES, AVATARS AND DISPLAY NAMES   The signature is optional on the forum, and should be a personal message of the user that chooses it.
      Moderators are obliged to include a link for the BitDefender Forum Rules in their signature.
      Users will only be allowed to display a custom signature after having completed 15 posts on the forum.   The following will NOT be tolerated:
      1. Any type of explicit reference to the brand name and symbols of other security solutions available on the international market today, except BitDefender. This is a support forum dedicated only to BitDefender and advertising competitor products will lead to editing out the advertisement and a 20% increase in the warn level.
      2. The use of images higher than 300 pixels width and/or 100 pixels height.
      3. The use of images or text containing the words "Moderator", "Administrator" or "Admin" in the signatures. These will only confuse other users.
      4. The use of images taken from other users of this forum. Please use unique avatars.
      5. Use of signatures pointing to external links,they will be removed without any notice.
      WARNINGS   Those who repeatedly violate these rules will receive a warn/suspend/ban.   POSTING RULES   1.
      Topic titles must be as concise as possible, and starting posts must provide relevant information on the issues included, to ensure a fast and precise response from those who are willing to help. For example: avoid titles such as "Heeeeeelp!" but instead write "Question about the BitDefender Antivirus". The last title has a lot more chances of receiving fast responses. Also, topic titles such as "Program X ######! " together with the lack of any constructive arguments will not be tolerated, the topic will be deleted and the user will receive a 20% warning.   2.
      Post new topics in the correct sections. The forum is structured by Product type (Home/Office or Business protection) and by product version (2008, 2009, 2010 or older versions). If you post the question in the correct section, you have a higher chance of getting a correct answer for your problems.  
      3.
      Bumps/Topic advertisments or any other attempts to make a topic more visible without adding any new or relevant information will NOT be tolerated and the post will be DELETED.  
      4.
      When posting a reply on a topic try to keep the suggestion within a relevant range – for example, when there is a post concerning an error message in BitDefender 2009 do not recommend downgrading to BitDefender 2008 for this suggestion does not address the original issue. Multiple posting of this type will lead to an increase of the warn level with 20%.   5.
      Off topic replies (those that have nothing to do with the topic) will be deleted, and users will also receive a written warning . Repeated posting of offtopic replies will lead to an increase in the warn level with 10%.   6.
      Keep text color, fonts and letter casing within a normal and pleasant range - any post that contains only upper case text will automatically be subjected to editing, the same applies to posts containing characters larger than size 20.   7.
      Before opening a new topic, we strongly suggest that you use the SEARCH button, to be sure that the problem was not already discussed. In case you start a new topic with an issue that was already discussed, the new topic will be closed down, redirected and merged into the initial one.   8.
      Do not ask the same thing on more sections of the forum. Do not post the same topic more than once. Twin topics will be removed and redirected to the original one in order to avoid confusion.   9.
      Do NOT request/post warez software, cracks, serial numbers or any other actions which involve software piracy. Topics and replies related to cracking security software, advice on breaching security systems, cracking security protocols, flood attacks or posts that promote cracking or Internet attacks in any way will be deleted at once and the users that posted them will have their accounts suspended at once. Also, no support will be offered for users that are using a cracked version of BitDefender on their systems.   10.
      Please avoid topic titles such as "URGENT" since all cases are treated as soon as possible.   11.
      Please be patient – there are a lot of issues on the forum and we are doing the best we can to answer them all. Therefore, you may receive your answer immediately, but it may also take several days just as well.   12.
      We do not allow people to post threads that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations – all topics of this type will be automatically DELETED . Explicit advertising is also prohibited.  
      FORUM RULES ARE SUBJECTED TO CONTINUOUS MODERATION AND CAN BE CHANGED AT ANY GIVEN TIME WITHOUT PRIOR NOTIFICATION. ANY TOPIC DEBATING FORUM RULES WILL BE CLOSED DOWN AND AUTOMATICALLY DELETED FOR THESE RULES ARE NOT SUBJECTED TO DEBATE.   Have a nice day,
      The BitDefender Team.

...and DO NOT FORGET...

Hello,

Final Version 0.1

http://www17.zippyshare.com/v/53614871/file.html

(I have made the installer, add support for all ports, and made the program stard automatically at Windows Startup)

[iNSTALL]

1) Delete any previous version of the fix.

2) Just launch the setup.exe on your computer, and it works!

[uNINSTALL]

Go to: C:\Program Files (x86)\BitdefenderBandwidthFix\ and click on unins000.exe.

[REQUIREMENTS]

About 1 MB of RAM Memory only!

Thanks.

...above solution, created by JoshY, eliminating problem mentioned by Chev.

It is not a patch, it's a standalone app thus, it should work with any BD release (and against their willingness).

For further adjustments on this app, after installation, you may go to "Task Scheduler".

Regards!

IDM will never update their driver to compatible with bid.

So you're saying it's on their (IDM) end, and that BD can't figure out a work around for the driver issue?

I think ..

this is an ego going on between idm & bid team.

Bid team can easily solve this problem but they asked idm to solve on their end.

I don't know about other country but here in india i have never seen any pc without idm installed.

I do not like using bid without traffic light.

Please fix this sir.

We are still waiting.

How do you know if you have that "ghost traffic"? I have program Net Worx for monitor my network activity, and when I watching youtube videos it uses my traffic but after i close my browser (Chrome) it stops downloading.

I see it in the BD desktop gadget. Network activity is 100% then. When I have this "ghost traffic" I use TcpView and close all "Fin Wait" connections and it's ok.

Thanks,

When I look to my BD Desktop widget when my browser is closed after Youtube my traffic also stops(according to Net Workx and BD Widget), maybe it's not problem on all PC's.

Connections with "FIN_WAIT_2" flag are remaining opened, not the ones with "FIN_WAIT" flag.

This problem exists, definitely, on all PCs with BD installed but not for all (YouTube, Vimeo, radio etc.) stream connections. It depends from the server.

With Joshy's solution you should not see this problem again. It closes connections immediately and automatically. There is no need to open another app and close manually "FIN_WAIT_2" connections which is annoying. Edited by werby3

W8 and BD W8 Security

Firefox 22

No packets downloaded here in FIN_WAIT2 state. Once I close the live stream on KJAZZ it moves to FIN_WAIT2 state and packet (Recd Bytes) downloaded cease to increment. Connection remains in FIN_WAIT2 state without additional bytes being downloaded from website. Once I close Firefox the connection is removed.

No problem whatsoever.

W8 Pro/64b and BD W8 Security or BDIS New Edition

Firefox, IE, Chrome, Opera (last releases)

FIN_WAIT2 state and downloading remains even after quitting browsers.

The only way to terminate connections is to disable/enable network adapter.

@nesivos Don't worry. It's the rest of the world you can put the blame on...like here : http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?sho...st&p=191140

Good night...

This should be fixed by now as it's easily reproducible, the fact that end users are turning to alternative methods of correcting a SERIOUS issue with this program does not leave this company looking good.
