I have SAS but not BitDefender so I have not experienced your problem, but if BD is complaining about files that SAS has made read only and quarantined, why not just navigate to the the location of the files and delete them yourself?
The Application Data folder is hidden so a normal search won't find them. You can check the box to tell search to look for hidden files/folders under the Advanced and Other options, or look for them yourself in Explorer:
If you are using Windows Explorer, navigate to:
C:\Documents and Settings\William xxxxx\
Select Tools, Folder Options, View and select Show hidden files and folders, click OK and now the Application Data folder is visible.
Navigate to wherever your SAS quarantined files are or wherever BD is having a problem:
This is just like any other folder on your system where SAS has put the afflicted items for safe keeping and out of reach. Delete the afflicted items, but leave the folder.
If BD is complaining about some other folder/files and they are read only or password protected and you are sure you don't need them, use the same process to go to folder/files where BD is having an issue and just whack the files yourself.
It sounds like BD is just giving your warnings which are not the same as errors, so It may be working just fine and there may be some way to configure it to deal with this situation more gracefully than my brute force approach.
You did not give an example of the path/files BD is complaining about, so if this doesn't sound quite right, give more info.
When you are done you may want to then go back in Explorer and chose to rehide the files and folders that are normally hidden so you don't accidentally delete them someday.
