- Clean uninstall bitdefender total protection 2017
I have several issues with this software on my windows 8.1 pc.
I’ve tried to uninstall it in the easy way and also with its tool, but I get errors. And at a certain point I’m asked for a psw which I don’t absolutely remember.
Can I act through the registry or through a script?
Could you please help me solve this nightmare?

Have you ever set up a password for Bitdefender Antivirus? Since the password is mandatory, you won’t be able to uninstall it without having the correct password. Please try to remember your password.
Uninstalling the antivirus manually can be a bit tricky and risky, I wouldn’t recommend this. But what if it gives you an error message while uninstalling? In this case, you’ll have to remove it manually.
Can you please share that error message with us here?

Wow, thank you so much for sharing this tips! I really appreciate your help.
No, the password was set in 2016…🤷♀️🤦♀️.
The uninstalling tool would not remove it completely, showing just a plain message saying that there was an error removing it.
I had to bring the pc back to a previous restore pointto have it working.
I will try with your precious tips in about 16 days time, and will let you know.
Thank you very much!
