    Only what you choose.

    Last night I was still able to use Revo Uninstall Pro, but my 30 day trial evidently expired overnight. Revo Free doesn't have the Forced Uninstall option, so I can no longer experiment.

    Hi Rick,
    try the above mentioned. the free version has a forced uninstall option as shown by David.
    What version bitdef are you running, mines the free version, and i find no reference to that folder.

    I just checked features of Revo Free vs. Pro on the web, and Forced Uninstall says YES only for the latter. It doesn't show up in the menu bar for the free version that I have.

    Anyway, I have already deleted the folder using the Safe Boot method described above.

    That folder, which contained Bitdef. stuff, was apparently created by a packaging application called Winrar. It was supposed to be temporary, but for an unknown reason became tricky to delete.

Delete the Windows.old folder
Hey, Pisan, if it works, let me know. I've been trying for two days to delete it. The instructions are for deleting the windows.old folder out of Windows 7, and they don't work on Windows 8. I've saved everything I want, and I can't get rid of the rest.
