Hi,

Firewall?

Firewall,
Rules,
click twice on the program you want to deactivate
click twice to access to the panel where you can click on Deny (instead of Authorize) in the Action box.

Antivirus?

Resident
Parameters
among exclusions, choose the exe file you want to block click on authorize and choose block
You can surf in your system to add a file to block (or to authorize)

Hi Husain,

Please mention what you mean by 'block a program'. You wish that program not to access the Internet or not to run on your computer ?

Looking forward to your answer!

Regards,

Hello,

You can prevent a program from running on your computer if you add it as a rule into Active Virus Control. To do that follow the steps below:

1. Open BitDefender security center;
2. Switch it to Expert mode from the Settings button;
3. Go to Antivirus tab;
4. Click on the Advanced Settings button;
5. Add the executable file of the program you wish to block as a rule into AVC.
6. Restart the computer.

If the program is also connecting to the Internet you can block its access by adding a rule into BitDefender Firewall module.

Regards,

Hi Husain,

May I ask why or how exactly you wish the program to be blocked ? Applications like Windows Live Messenger can be blocked by clicking on the Config button under Parental Control feature in BitDefender as shwon in the printscreen below.

Attached File  Parental_control___block_an_application.JPG   146.54KB   20 downloads

Note that you will need to set the Windows Username associated with the person using the Live Messenger that you wish to block. Also keep in mind that you can block an application permanently or based on a schedule. For more information on the Parental Control please see the BitDefender Internet Security 2010 UserGuide


Regards,

Hello,

The error you receive reproduce no matter what application you are trying to block or just with Windows Live Messenger ?

I have double checked and the issue do not reproduce on my PC with either old or new Windows Messenger.

Try to repair BitDefender , restart the computer then try to add the file again as blocked application under Parental Control module.

The default path for Windows Live Messenger is:

C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe

Keep in mind to try to block the application for all Windows Usernames to see if the error reproduce on all users.

Please let me know if the issue persist.

Regards,

Hi Husain,

Please right click on BitDefender icon next to your computer's clock and select 'About'. Provide me with a screenshot of that window.

Keep in mind that you can't add Windows files such as Explorer.exe as a blocked application, however Windows Live Messenger is not considered a Windows System file nor application. Try to block an application such as Winamp, WinRar or Skype to see if the issue still replicates.

Do you have Administrator rights on the PC ?
