I managed to fix this problem by completely uninstalling Bitdefender using the official uninstall tool.

http://www.bitdefender.com/uninstall/

I then reinstalled it by downloading the Windows 10 compatible version and installing manually.

Windows defender now reports that it is turned off! 😊

(This was for Bitdefender Total Security 2015)
