Hi ksmith!

How are you today? I hope you are doing very fine.

Thank you also for informing us about your concern in the community. Let me help you with this.

Upon checking your concern, it appears that you were getting a pop-up error message regarding BitDefender.

Please be informed that the BitDefender is one of the programs that can cause conflict and has to be removed before installing Trend Micro Security software. You may refer to the link below for the list of other programs that are considered as incompatible with the Trend Micro program.

To be honest, I would recommend to contact BitDefender support so that they can assist you well in uninstalling their product. But, since you have already contacted them, I have checked their support page on how to successfully uninstall their product.

To successfully remove the BitDefender, please check the full name of the software then download the right uninstall tool with the same product name. You may check the link below.
