Since Friday, a few computers running Windows 7 Pro have lost their static IP address.
When checking the Local Area Connection / Properties / Intenret Protocol Version 4 / Properties / the fields IP address and efault gateway are blank - despite the fact the "Use the following IP address" is selected".
Re-entering the static IP address does fix the issue but I don't understand why this is happening.
I am running BitDefender End Security Point on each machine.
The issue does not happen on all the Windows 7 machine.
A few users have reported an automatic installation of a Windows update - then a reboot - before the ip address issue occured. But I cannot confirm this point for each case.
Has someone seen this before ?
