Bit Defender Antivirus 2009 Does Not Uninstall
My Bit Defender antivirus 2009 was not responsie for last 1 month and I could not manually start a scan. I tried to repair it with a original CD and runing Autorun.exe. It prompted my for dowlonad new version... when I click NO, and then it pops a dialog saying - a newer version of Bit Defender 2009 is detected on this machine and has to be uninstalled to complete this installation. When i click OK, I get wizard dialog saying ..Bit Defender installation ended prematurely... and I get 3 buttons...Run Uninstall Tool, Scan and AV Scan. When I clik -Run Uninstall tool it opens Uninstall tool where I click uninstall, it lists out what are the components it is able uninstall.
There are 2 items it failed to un-install - Delete main registry keys & Delete remaining registry values.
It seems that I am able to uninstall all except registry keys which is preventing me a re-install. But I still see Bit Defender in Cotrol Panel, but again, when I try uninstall from control panel, it fails find the ....msi which I guess was already deleted as part of my earlier un-install process.
Can somebody guide me how to fix this so that I can re-install? I am running Windows Vista Home premium eidition that comes with a new laptop.
