    Have you ever wondered why a company would want to install their software product in a manner that makes complete removal virtually impossible?
    So goes my adventure with BD. And this is no fun at all.
    I tried their newest version 10 Internet Suite. It was pretty good.
    But their complete lack of caring enough to answer email questions was a very good reason to uninstall their product.
    The uninstall was without any noticeable problem. After it was done, I went to Search and pulled up some left over fragments and deleted them. Then used CC Cleaner.
    But of course BD was causing me problems on my XP pc.
    I have gone through the registry at least 5 times. And deleted everything from BD and Softwin.
    And still my pc thinks that BD firewall is turned off. And no other firewall shows up as working.
    If anybody has an idea of how I can finally fix this problem please let me know.
    As for BD-I'm thinking of the fleas from a 1000 camels should visit them at the worst possible time.

    thats not a bitdefender problem its the stupid Microsoft security centre problem. what you need is the the windows security centre reset tool.
    someone else can give you link because im going to bed now:D
    you will need to uninstall all av's before running it thou then reinstall your av after.
    when i read the title i thought you meant it wouldn't uninstall
    you should now be able to blame Microsoft for your problems and apologize to softwin =)

    i wouldnt apologize to softwin. they have never responded to many posters here of issues regarding false positives. nor as far as im aware corrected these in their definitions especially their online scanner. in fact as far as im aware they still delete these false positives even after setting the scan to report only. some software developers are responsive to customers some are not . i would only support those that are responsive. i avoid softwin as a hard sell much like some anti spyware companies that do the same to panic potential customers.

    Hmm? I've not encountered such a problem from BitDefender and personally think their support is pretty good, though the support was not good at the time they initially launched BD10 (but its pretty good now).

    Anyway, try the BitDefender uninstall tool, and if it doesn't work, you need RejZoR's Security Center reset tool (https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=863840&postcount=22). :)

    I always found bitdefenders support pretty good, especially when you chat with a specific person.
