    Program refuses to be uninstalled


    Bitdefender (an anti-virus program) is giving me trouble. After running for a week it gave trouble (refused to accept my sign-in details and even a new attempt to register under new details). It refuses to run and it keeps in asking me to re-install it, which I do but I get into the same loop again.

    I have tried Windows 10's uninstall control panel but I repeatedly get a window, presumably from Bitdefender, giving me info on how to complete installation (which includes a restart). Bitdefender continues to be listed in CP "Programs and Features".

    How can I get rid of this troublesome program? Is there a brute force method?

    Thanks.

    Yes, that worked, but it was a struggle involving irrelevant error messages. After the hassle with Bitdefender and, earlier, AVG, I am now relying on Windows defender and Malwarebytes (paid).

    Thanks for your help.

    That is also the combination I use, it works on my system with out a bunch of hassle.
    I do manual update often on both programs. It takes less than a minute.

    Good. That's reassuring.
