well its a major bad update of BD DEFINITIONS that's causing this...The problem is only affecting users of the x64 versions

READ HERE....Bad Update Or....? - Please Check Http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showtopic=18789 For Updates - BitDefender Forum

two quotes from the thread:
Quote:
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!

Bitdefender is going crazy today!!!... it blocks all the EXE files including cmd.exe....the trojan name called fake5
Hurry up...we need fixes soon
I've turned the realtime protection!!
even bullguard which uses BD definitions is experiencing the same....so take care

If you're going to pay for a security suite, then go with either Kaspersky or Avira Premium Security Suite.
