Persistent installation request...RarSFX0\bddeploy.exe

I recently uninstalled an old version of Bitdefender Antivrus Free and Bitdefender Agent (via Windows 10 “Uninstall or change a program” panel). I then downloaded and installed the latest version.

Subsequent to that, each time I turned on my laptop, logged in to W10 and connected to wi-fi, a dialogue box would appear asking “Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?”. It was for Bitdefender Installation file, Verified Publisher Bitdefender SRL, Program location ……...App Data\Local\Temp\RarSFX0\bddeploy.exe. There seems to be no reason for this, as Bitdefender loads and appears to be functioning as it should. I deleted the temporary file, but the problem arose again when I next connected to wi-fi. I again deleted the temporary file, then uninstalled Bitdefender and did a fresh install.

None of those actions resolved the issue...I still get the Installation File request every time I connect to wi-fi.

Any suggestions for eliminating this persistent and annoying bug?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
