I solely use free anti-virus and stand alone firewalls. My problem is that i continually change these programs (once every two months or so) , to ensure proper protection. Every time i install a new anti-virus , during the install process it tells me i need to un-install Bit Defender. The Bit Defender i used is 3 years old , and was un-installed 2 years ago. I have searched "My Computer" for any remaining BD files using multiple keywords and such , but to no avail. Because it "strongly Recommends" removing BD before continuing the install , could there be a hidden or behind the scenes software conflict with my new anti-virus and Bit Defender? , and could it affect my protection level ? Your help is greatly appreciated. R.

Please do not use Oversize Fonts on the forum as it is not required - Your answers will be in our standard size -
Visit This site Ra products uninstallers and use their uninstallers for Bit Defender - It works very well -
Thank You -

EDIT - If you have problems viewing normal size fonts then please ask for a larger size and we can message you in another size -
