First thing, let's be sure that some trust exclusions are made into the settings of BitDefender.

In order for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Bitdefender  to work  smoothly together instead of conflicting, you must configure both applications.  
 
How to configure Bitdefender  to exclude Malwarebytes files -
Step 1. Open Bitdefender
Step 2. Click on "Protection"
Step 3. Click on the little white cog icon beside the "Antivirus" options
Step 4. Go to "Exclusions"
Step 5. Turn on "Exclusions for files" by pressing the dark square
Step 6. Click on "Excluded files and folders"
Step 7. Click "Add" and select "Browse"
Step 8. Navigate to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware' or 'C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware', select desired folder and click "OK"
Step 9. Make sure that the option "Both" is checked and select "Add"
Step 10. Click "OK"
Step 11. Reboot your computer <--Very Important!
 
 
How to add your Bitdefender  folder to Malwarebytes "Malware Exclusions" list -
Step 1. Open the Malwarebytes application
Step 2. Click on "Settings"
Step 3. Click "Malware Exclusions" in the left column
Step 4. Click on "Add Folder"
Step 5. Navigate to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\'  or  'C:\Program Files\'
Step 6. Click once on "Bitdefender" folder to highlight it
Step 7. Click on "Select Folder"
Step 8. Close Malwarebytes
Step 9. Reboot your computer <--Very Important!

 

See how it does after these steps.   and if no joy, then kindly provide this Protection log.

Look for the Protection Log for today  from the HISTORY section in our program.

Click on the History tab > Application Logs.
Double click on the Protection log which shows today's date.  Please make sure the word Protection is shown and also that you grab the very latest Date.
You can double click the line to get it on screen. Then use the menu at bottom of the window.

Click the EXPORT button at the bottom left.
Click TEXT file

Be very aware as to what folder and what NAME you give this report.  You have to make a note so you can send it.

Then attach that file with your next reply.

OK,  Thanks for the news.   I wonder whether there was  a leftover trace of one or another antivirus-firewall was leading to some interference.

Switching from one A-V - firewall to another can often lead to some pain, unless one takes extra steps to insure all traces of the old suite are removed.

Glad to hear yours is ok now.
