Dear Dinesh,

On download of CE zip follow steps given below to unblock zip so that any antivirus will not quarantine the CE binaries-

  1. Right click on CE zip file and click on properties.
  2. Check at the bottom of the properties window where it shows Zip file is blocked since it is downloaded from internet.
  3. If it is blocked then click on “Unblock” button present beside message mentioned above.

Now, you can unzip and install CE and antivirus or bitdefender will no more block or quarantine the binaries.

Thanks,
Sachin
