    Isn't it already? I thought Comodo issued a fix/update?

    I wish that were the case. I'd have installed Bitdefender much sooner.

    Right now no, but in the next update.

    Currently when the virus database is updated, quarantined files are re-scanned, and false-positives will be automatically restored.

    That doesnt make much sense....
    What difference does it make if the database is updated or not,?
    A false positive is a false positive and nothing else.

    Because if a bad signature results in a false-positive and quarantines it, and the new database fixes it, the quarantined false-positive is no longer detected as bad and is restored. Avast! has the option to rescan quarantined files, so you could restore false-positives. The only difference is Bitdefender does it automatically.

    this is not good because if one program not working and there is not a way to restore file detected like virus........ that's very bad and makes problems

    You wouldn't want BD to rush.

    I am getting a lot of blocked websites lately that are wordpress.com blogs with their own domains. I very much doubt that these are malicious websites.

    On my system Bit Defender Free has not updated since yesterday morning more than 40 hours ago. Is there server trouble?

    Question: Can it be installed on multiple computers using the same e-mail address for all of them?

    Well it doesn't appear thay anyone has a more rent update for Bit Defender Free than the version which is shown below, and this is now almost two and a half days old. I guess the server must be down, anyone from Bit Defender around to comment..

    The update version is 7.4558
    The signature number is 8857329"
