    gz services


    Bitdefender services are usually prefixed gz, search for gziface, gzserv.

    That could be it. The "parent" program might have been uninstalled. Oh well, I'm not going to waste any more time on it I suppose lol

    Bitdefender is one of the best AV programs on the market, I use it and it doesn't slow down the machine like many others do. Do you know what version it is? This may help http://www.bitdefender.com/site/view/uninstall_consumer_trial.html

    Well, if it's not giving you anymore probs, then glad you got it sorted. The only reason I could guess you had an orphan file related to that would be that somehow, it tried to install in the background without your knowledge & it either failed or was interrupted. You might want to give Agent Ransack a try just for curiosity's sake & see what it finds. Something to do when you get bored.... And it's a good prog to have. The only thing I use anymore when searching for files.

    I have no idea. There is no trace of it anywhere on my computer except some obscure log file created during reboot because Bitdefender encountered an "error". lol

    It's good? How much does it cost?

    Could it be some malware "masking" itself as Bitdefender or "mimmicking" it?

    I don't know. My system was fully restored and everything works 100%. The file is this: "BitDefender Threat Scanner.dmp" and is in c:\windows\temp and whenever I reboot, right before it shuts down, I get a pop up message something about BitDefender encountered an error.
