Remove Bitdefender from OSX (App Store version)

Bitdefender for Windows is a highly rated application, but I can tell you from personal experience, on OSX, it's pretty much garbage. Furthermore, the App Store version does not come with an uninstaller the same way the download (from their site) version does. After following their recommended way of removing the app you may want to remove other files also. Remove this folder: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Bitdefender\ Virus\ Scanner And this file: ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/com.bitdefender.BitdefenderVirusScanner.savedState The issue that I, and other nay sayers on the App Store, have with BD AV is that it completely locks up your system when running a full scan, essentially making it about as bad as some viruses. I'm using ClamXAV now instead.
