BitDefender 2011.



BitDefender 2011 is a misleading security software that will mimic the legitimate program in order to deceive computer users.
Sometimes called as the  Bit Defender 2011 virus, this one was included in the lists of rogue security applications that were created specifically to be sold via unfair marketing method. The real BitDefender 2011 can be downloaded from Bitdefender web site and must be installed manually, while the rogue one’s will be dropped on to computers and be installed without users consent. Also the legitimate one is offered in two variants namely BitDefender Antivirus Pro, BitDefender Total Security 2011 and BitDefender Internet Security 2011. These variants offers different levels of protection.

It is good to know that fake BitDefender 2011 can penetrate a computer without being detected. This is because it uses a technique that will hide itself on the system by injecting a code on legitimate Windows process. A Trojan is also responsible why the fake BitDefender 2011 can manipulate a system without hindrance from any security applications installed. Modifications can be performed on the registry that will allow itself to run when Windows is started. Removing BitDefender 2011 virus is the best idea to prevent further harm it may cause to compromised computer. Use only legitimate anti-malware programs to scan the computer and remove fake BitDefender 2011 together with all the files residing on the system.

Removal:

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
  • bitdefender.exe
Location of the infection:
  1. C:\Program Files\BitDefender 2011\bitdefender.exe
  2. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\BitDefender 2011\BitDefender 2011.lnk
  •  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “BitDefender 2011″ = ‘C:\Program Files\BitDefender 2011\bitdefender.exe’
Although it is possible to manually remove BitDefender 2011, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
