Cannot reinstall/uninstall/load in taskbar

Recently thinking a random power throttle in my WIN 7 was caused by Bitdefender processes spiking my CPU, I began trying to uninstall so I could do a fresh installed version.

After failed attempts to remove it by using Control Panel, not able to find it in Revo Uninstaller, nor able to remove it booting in safe mode, I am now stuck with a version that will not load in task bar because it says trying to login and must restart system when forcing it to load, nor let me get rid of it so another AV can install without saying I need to remove this one first, I am lost on what options I have left to try.

Now trying to download and install over itself fails, trying to uninstall in control panel does nothing- no error just does nothing at all- and system restore fails no matter the point chose. Since soon I have to buy a WIN 10 anyhow, I am ready to take a loss, but mad as to have been beat by anything I did not learn from.


Any ideas welcome, specific registry areas would no doubt be ideal.
