My bitdefender keeps giving me a popup that agremove.exe is getting blocked due to my IDS (Intrusion Detection System) I've looked up this agremove.exe and found it to be some sort of virus. I don't know how to remove it and some sites that give instructions have me going through my registry, which I don't feel comfortable doing unless I know EXACTLY where I need to go in my registry.
Anyone heard of this agremove.exe? If so, any way to remove it?
Thanx!!

BitDefender did not report the file as a threat when it was submitted for analysis:

VirSCAN.org report of agremove.exe
VirusTotal report of agremove.exe

You probably should resubmit it for analysis again.

Yes, I've called BD already and I have to WAIT on them to respond to me!! Was just wondering if anyone had heard of this virus and had a way to remove it.
Sorry about the double posts I didn't realize I had done that.

From the prior scan results it does not appear to be a virus or malicious file. That's why I asked you to resubmit it to VirusTotal or VirSCAN for a more current analysis. If it still comes back clean, then it's probably a false positive.

If that's the case you will need to wait on BitDefender to correct the detection.

agremove.exe can be found in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\ folder. From the information I found, it is related to Absolute Software Corp. You can confirm that by right-clicking on the file, choose Properties and examine the General and Version tabs.
