Bitdefender posts an ERROR Msg. in WinXP-32bit.
 
 
      Gziface.exe - .NET Framework Initialization Error
"Unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application"
 
Also a Pop-up in the bottom right appears ...
 
WINDOWS CORRUPT FILE:
  "The file or directory C:\Windows\Microsoft.net\Framework\
  v4.0.30319 is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk
  utility."
 
 
After running "chkdsk" utility, it finds and removes many files.
Upon reboot - same problem.
 
In ADD / REMOVE Programs, Microsoft .NET Framework 4 ... will
not Repair or Remove. Upond download .NET Repair Tool from MS,
it cannot fix the problem and uploads logs to MS.
 
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Rick.

If a second run of check disk also finds problems then you may have either a bad drive or bad ram and will need to fix that first.  If the second run is clean then try the .net cleanup tool:

You will then need to reinstall all of the .net programs in numerical order

I think this Pop-up regarding .NET v4 is an Error. Don't believe BitDefender relies on .NET v4. In fact, BD updated when I switched over to Admin and the Pop-up did not display. Switched back to Regular User, the Pop-up displayed, but BD running Ok. 

 

Still confused as to why the Pop-up regarding .NET v4. Ran MS Security Tool (found nothing), and RT (removed a few Browser addons), Ran BD Full System Scan (found nothing). Ran SFC. So everything seems OK. But feel unsafe ignoring the Pop-up in Regular User.

 

Any ideas? Thanks!

Apparently BitDefender does use .net tho not so much for the anti-virus.  I found this:

 

To run properly, Bitdefender Safebox requires .NET Framework 3.5.

By default, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 come with .NET Framework 4.5 or 4.5.1 installed.

Thus, when running Safebox for the first time on a system that is running Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, if the feature is not initializing (starting) correctly, you will just have to install .NET Framework 3.5.

In order to do that, please follow the steps from this Microsoft article:

 

 

Also found a note that said the user interface used .net but that the anti-virus would still work without it.

 

I would think there is a permission error somewhere since it works for admin but not for user.  Can you create a new user and see if the new user has the same problem?

 

You would probably have better luck in the dedicated BitDefender forum:  http://forum.bitdefe...dex.php?act=idx

Running in to problem trying to Remove / Uninstall .NET v4. Even MS tools will not uninstall.

 

To [bleep] with Microsoft. Wiped out the entire Drive and installed Linux.

 

Open Source for everyone .. .. .. YEEE AHHhhhh.  I've been using it for years. Finally my wife relented, and I install Xubuntu for her.

No more MS scams for support and upgrading because of built in obsolessence.

 

Case Closed ! ! !
