How do I remove other security solutions?

The main reason for using a security solution is to provide protection and safety for your data. But what happens when you have more than one security product on the same system?

When you use more than one security solution on the same computer, the system becomes unstable. The Bitdefender  installer automatically detects other security programs and offers you the option to uninstall them.

If you did not remove the other security solutions during the initial installation, follow these steps:

 

  • For Windows XP:

1. Click Start, go to Control Panel and double-click Add / Remove programs.

2. Wait a few moments until the list of installed software is displayed.

3. Find the name of the program you want to remove and select Remove.

4. Wait for the uninstall process to complete, then reboot your system.

 

  • For Windows Vista and Windows 7:

1. Click Start, go to Control Panel and double-click Programs and Features.

2. Wait a few moments until the installed software list is displayed.

3. Find the name of the program you want to remove and select Uninstall.

4. Wait for the uninstall process to complete, then reboot your system.

 

  • For Windows 8 and Windows 8.1:

1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen,

2. Tapp Search (or if you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search
