When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Bduninstall

Post by golaman » Tue Sep 13, 2011 4:49 pm

I noticed something today on my computer called BduninstallTool 16,019KB, Bduninstall 355KB and BdLog 24KB. Can anyone enlighten me as to what these items are about, how they might have got there and can I safely remove them. Seems to be using a lot of space. I did google it but it was talking about registry etc and I just don't feel brave enough to go there.

What was it?
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

Yes Bit Defender. I had a prob some time back but I can't remember how but it was determined that BD was the culprit. I had to download Bduninstaller to get rid of BD. My computer has slowed up a little of late and I was hoking about and saw this bduninstaller. It didn't register with me. I have deleted it now.
