I have a fresh install of Windows 7 64bit plus VMWare Player and BitDefender security software
VMWare player is able to install, but unable to open.

Here is the same error I have received and my replies.

Does anybody know why BitDefender would cause this?
Is there a workaround or configuration I should be aware of?

Any Links or assistance would be much appreciated :-)
