You can’t. Bitdefender locks your iphone, and there is no way to uninstall it because the app is actually not an app but a screenlock that installs on your phone. If you want to remove Bitdefender from your iPhone go here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1574
BitDefender is one of many notoriously bad antivirus applications for Windows PCs! It slows down by at least 300% all programs including antispyware programs such as Spybot search & destroy and Ad-Aware SE, causing these programs to become very slow in response time (cycling from 1 hour scans), thus increasing chances of identity theft due to operating system slowness which makes almost impossible to use the computer for long periods of time.
Also, when running a scan with BitDefender it stops the operating system from recognizing new devices or connecting to them (such as USB memory sticks), and further causing you spend money on plugging in external keyboards and mice because it keeps restarting your wireless keyboard!
BitDefender’s support team is completely useless: they don’t know how to solve problems at all, but instead just keep saying to turn off/on different things with no effect whatsoever. This is a common problem among other antivirus programs known as “bloatware” which get installed onto PCs without permission and then infects the operating system with bloatware that slows down computers significantly making them almost impossible to use.
I just bought a new Dell XPS 10 wireless all in one computer which for some reason, from the day I got it and installed Windows 7 64 bit, can no longer connect to wireless networks (it was never able to). It says that network is not associated with any access point or something like that. The problem seems to be an issue with my wifi card because if I plug in an ethernet cable directly into the back of the computer it connects fine and starts downloading updates automatically using Windows Automatic Updates – but why can’t it do that with the wifi card?
I never had problems like this when I had Windows XP. On my old computer running XP Pro 32 bit connecting to networks was always easy and worked perfectly.
I spent hours watching videos about how to fix this problem all over youtube (including going through a complete reformat of the hard drive) but none of the solutions work! It seems to be something wrong with the networking drivers either with Microsoft or Dell (or Microsoft’s Automatic Updates). If it works fine using an ethernet cable then it is clearly a driver issue, but why should some programs work on wireless and not others? This makes no sense at all – does anyone know why this might be happening? Is there any way for me to download and install drivers manually? I have tried using the Dell website but it never works (it says my product is not supported).
Also, going back to Windows XP on this new computer does not seem to be an option: apparently Microsoft stopped supporting it about a year ago. So how can I get my wireless working again? All advice greatly appreciated – thanks!
This happened on my Nook Color as well. There was no way I could ever connect to Google Play or any other wifi network. A message appeared stating “Invalid credentials”. Everywhere online people claimed that because of the hardware, there was just no solution at all besides rooting your device and installing a custom ROM which would completely erase everything on your e-reader all your data, e-books and other personal information. I was hesitant to do this because of how precious my e-reader is to me. It has literally every book I have ever read on it (and a lot more besides).
But then one day there was an update available for it, so I did the update… And everything worked! No more invalid credentials message. Just in case anything else happens with the wifi, here’s what you need to do if you’re still getting invalid credentials: go into your device’s settings and make sure “Android Market Client” is not set to “off” or “uninstalled”. The default setting should be “on”, but if it isn’t just click the arrow next to it and choose whichever setting it is. It seems like this was the actual problem all along, as I no longer get the invalid credentials message and can easily connect to Google Play (and therefore wifi in general).
Whew… Just don’t ever, EVER do anything with your e-reader or any other device that you would be devastated to lose. Because it might erase all your data or break it permanently if you aren’t careful.
The same thing happened to me when trying to connect Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop computer running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit operating system using a D-Link Wireless G router WGR614v9 connected via ethernet cable. It kept telling me “unable to access network” – basically what everyone else is saying here.
The fix is to make sure the ethernet cable is properly connected to the back of your computer and also that you have a working wireless card because it will not work if there’s no wireless card or an improperly installed one (or else a driver problem – which I had). This seems like a simple enough solution, but I was so confused by it for weeks.
I searched and searched all over Google and tried everything that seemed remotely related to my issue – from installing new drivers to resetting my computer’s networking settings. No dice… at least not until today when finally deciding just what the heck did plug in the ethernet cable anyway? Maybe that does something! Apparently so! Why would Microsoft disable on.

Bitdefender had a 99% detection rate, coming in the same as McAfee AntiVirus Plus and Norton. Kaspersky and Trend Micro were able to detect 100% of fraudulent pages.
In the “Antivirus” pane, click “Open”. In the Advanced tab, under Bitdefender Shield options, choose either to keep it disabled for as long as this applies or until your system is restarted.
