Can't delete the remaining Bitdefender files.

I had the trial version of Bitdefender installed and after the trial ended I uninstalled the product but there are bitdefender files that remain and i am not able to delete them even with the uninstaller utility. The utility says that uninstall completed with errors and visit support for complete uninstall.
