      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.

Wallet - Wrong Password

15 posts in this topic

I am on Windows 7 Ultimate.

I found a couple of days ago that when I try to open Wallet - it asks for the master password as usual. But - it keeps telling me that the master password is incorrect.

I downloaded the reset_password program so I could reset the password for the product. Started windows in safe mode - ran the program - gave me a cmd and it appeared to complete so I pressed a key to finish up.

I restarted windows normally - tried to open Wallet and got the same kind of message after trying to enter the master password. I then realized that I needed to set the password for the product so I went in under general settings and enterd the password. When I try to get into Wallet it keeps telling me that the master password is incorrect.

I selected to create a new wallet - when I do - it warns me about losing all data - then when I try to open the new wallet - I enter my "master password" and it still gives me the error Wrong Password.

I can go into the product under settings - try to change the password - it asks for the original password I key that in and I can get into entering a new password. I can get into the MyBitdefender on the web with no problem either.

So what am I mssing?

Bonsoir NODO

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate that, but rest assured, as soon as I get information on the problem of the Wallet, I would inform you. However, it may take a few days longer, as the French forum moderator is absent, it must be on vacation, perhaps returning to the 1st September. Ok, I will keep my promise ... A soon!

Greetings

John

Dear NODO

I sent a notification to the customer support to report my problem with Wallet playing tricks on me, word goes unrecognized, and today I received a mail service, inviting me to follow guide for the manipulation associated with my license. As ran, uninstall with BD2013_Uninstall_Tool.exe then restart then Patch SetID-Cleaner.exe, then reinstall the version 2014.

Everything went correctly, proper installation and proper functioning again.

My Wallet is now brand new now.

I created again (since I have Bitdefender Internet Security, brand new installed since yesterday!), A master password secure in Wallet.

I rebooted (Windows 7 - 64 bit) and open a small window opens asking for my password. I type and confirm my password and it's ok this time!

So now the rest is simple, every time I log on to a site such as this forum Bitdefender, a small window appears in the bottom right of the screen, saying: "Bitdefender secure your connection bitdefender.com".

I just checked by opening now Bitdefender Wallet and effectively, Bitdefender forum is registered, the web address, my ID and password are too.

So this is great, everything is going at the moment! I think it is a very useful tool, as Safepay.

Good evening!

I just want to confirm what you did to get this to work.

1) Run the BD2013_Uninstall_Tool.exe

2) Reboot your system

3) Run the SetID-Cleaner.exe

4) Install Bitdefender Internet Security again

Where did you get those programs from? Can you forward me the email you received from support? Assuming it is in English and if not - could you translate it for me?

Thanks so much for getting back to me.

Hi Jeannot

You have been so kind letting me know what you are finding out.

I will wait until the September build to see if they correct the problem or not. Anytime wallet comes up - I just close it. Not much of a problem but it is nicer when it is working.

Thanks.

Hello,

The build version is different in French kits. Remember that the slowdown encountered while navigating through the Wallet columns is already solved in the English kits. We announced the fix here, with build version 17.16.0.729:

http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?sho...st&p=195175

About removing the Wallet master password: there's no need to reinstall Bitdefender to achieve that. Indeed, if you forget the master password for your Wallet, due to security reasons it cannot be reset.

What we need to do in this case is remove the current database and create a new one.

In order to do so, please follow the instructions below:

1) Reboot Windows in Safe Mode, navigate to the following folder and delete everything you find on this path:

C:\ProgramData\Bitdefender\PasswordManager\random combination of letters and numbers\

- for example:

C:\ProgramData\Bitdefender\PasswordManager\S-1-5-21-2240077077-2759752423-3911928796-1001\

2) Once you remove all the files found there, reboot Windows normally and open Bitdefender. Once you click on "Wallet", you will be

prompted with a wizard to create a new wallet database.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance regarding this matter. Thank you! :)

Topic for NODO, Hello !

I have done exactly the handling set by Georgia, the Technical Support Group, and my problem is finally solved!

I think you could do the same thing because it is a safe manipulation. I appreciate the way that Georgia has explained to us how to proceed.

Thank you again to all!

Sincerely yours

Jeannot

De rien, Jeannot :)

Indeed, the instructions on how to delete the current database are common to all Bitdefender build versions, no matter the language pack.

@ NODO

Please try to perform the steps indicated above and let me know if you need further assistance.

Have a lovely weekend ahead!

Hi Georgia,

I also forgot my wallet's master password! I tried the steps you provided above but while in Safe Mode (I selected Safe Mode with Command Prompt), I couldn't find the following:

C:\ProgramData\Bitdefender\PasswordManager\random combination of letters and numbers\

Path not found

Then I decided to try:

C:\ProgramData\Bitdefender\

Path not found

Then:

C:\ProgramData\

Path not found

Could the following be the problem?

Product: Bitdefender Total Security 2016

Windows 8.1 64bit

I bought Bitdefender Total Security 2016 on 10/7/2015 because I shop online but unfortunately I haven't been able to use it because I forgot to write the password down! Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

:)

Hey Georgia

Re: Please refer to my first post which is 2 above. :(

So after thinking about it I decided to try again... So I reboot in Safe Mode (no command prompt this time), & it worked! Yippee! I was able to create a new Wallet database! Just goes to show you - Always Follow Directions!

Thanks for the great fix!

:)
