I have had Bitdefender Anti Virus installed and running (free-trial) on my Mac. I've uninstalled it and still when I restart my Mac the pop up come up that "you're trial has expired".

 

How can I delete that?

 

Thanks

Thanks, The first link actually worked for me.

 

My experience with Bitdefender is unsatisfactory and I've already tried malwarebytes for Mac (free version) I was always using free versions. First was malwarebytes, now Bitdefender, and now I've been thinking to move into paid antivirus as I've been checking overall rating for the famous ones mentioned here https://techloris.com/best-antivirus/ which one would you suggest is best for Mac and window 10.

 

So... Stick with which one? Any other recommendations?

 

Thanks again!

Not sure I trust that site.  Total AV & PC Protect are practically unknown.  I don't even see them on this site:

https://www.techrada.../best-antivirus

Personally I do not like McAfee.  It's not that good and it's harder to remove than some malware.  Norton tends to be a resource hog and will slow down your PC.  ESET's firewall can cause problems with Windows Updates.  Trend is on my bad list because they bought up one of the few anti-malware programs we had back in the day and stopped updating it (HijackThis!)

 

 

Personally I just use the free Avast.  Their boot-time scan is one of the best.  If you go in and turn on Silent Mode it stops bothering you with ads.  Their paid version isn't that expensive and it's pretty good tho for paid Win 10 AV I usually recommend Kaspersky or BitDefender.  We very seldom see them in our malware forum and when we do it's usually not malware causing the problem. 

 

Don't know much about Macs so can't really say.  https://www.pcmag.co...irus-protection

Thanks again for the detailed explanation. I'm checking out the listed ones and looking to purchase one.
