Default Fake BD

I do not have Bit Defender on my computer (that I can find) but I continue to get this popup on occasion:

BitDefender2.jpg

BitDefender1.jpg

Is this a virus or spyware?

Thanks, Kevin.

i don't think it's a spyware. you properly have gotten a trail version of Bit Defender via some free application you have downloaded.
just uninstall it in the remove program section in the control panel.

BitDefender is a well reputed software. Very powerful, very useful. Provided that this is really BitDefender, of course.

Perhaps you could paste a HijackThis log? (Don't fix anything though.)

I had looked for it in programs (under uninstall) and used search to try and find it but no joy. Would it be listed as something else?

A HijackThis log would clarify this.

But answering your question first, it could also be browser add-ons.
