    Access denied to certain things, error 0cx0000022 and more


    I am using windows 8.1

    After installing bitdefender I have lost allot of access to random things, for example:

    error 0cx0000022 when opening 3ds max
    Cant change firewall settings (error code 0x8007042c)
    Some applications dont have access to .dll files (So I cannot open them)

    Please help!
    If there is any more information I need to provide Im happy to do so.

    Uninstalling bitdefender did not work.

    what prompted you to install bitdefender in the first place??

    you already had a virus??


    bit-defender supposedly has an uninstall tool..

    Uninstall Bitdefender

    Uninstall Bitdefender
    I had a virus related to internet explorer, but i use chrome so it took a while to notice, I un-installed it without problem and everything worked fine but i did not want it to happen again so I got bitdefender. Then the problem started. Even after uninstalling bitdefender I have been blocked access to allot of files.

    can you still run Internet Explorer?

    have you tried safe mode? Safe mode with networking actually and then you come back here and look at solutions..
    Safe Mode - Start Windows 8 in


    like running Eset with Internet Explorer in safe mode..

    also try resetting Internet Explorer to default..

    then run eset

    (with Internet Explorer)
    Free Virus Scan | ESET Online Scanner | ESET


    use settings..

    Since you actually have a virus, I would go to BleepingComputer and post you need to be cleaned..

    they do have some info to read.. before joining and posting your virus infection..

    There is no way in hell you can be sure you are clean.. once infected, you have to treat it like a breach and usually you should Reformat to be honest..

    of course it depends on how serious the virus was.. but I'm pretty sure you won't be able to tell how serious it was..

    I would run Eset a few times and Malwarebytes, and have a look at Bleeping Computer - they have virus removal guides and you can see how they "clean" systems..

    it will show you a lot about how computers are used as well and how viruses can attack etc..

    did you run the uninstall BitDefender tool??

    You should be running SFC /scan now in a command prompt and so much more..

    but maybe go to BleepingComputer and you would know this..

    and if you do go to Bleeping Computer website, you will notice going through the downloads, that they have all kinds of uninstall tools for programs..


    I keep reiterating Bleeping Computer because you definitely said you have/had a virus.. and that puts your passwords at risk and info etc..

    so I got bitdefender. Then the problem started. Even after uninstalling bitdefender I have been blocked access to allot of files.
    And BitDefender, especially after uninstalling, should not "block access" to files..

    and if it somehow still does, that needs to be taken over to Bitdefender as a serious flaw and they will help you solve your computer issue..

    but since i'm sure that's 90% not the case that bitdefender caused this, I think you have to go down the virusn removal route..
