Windows 7: Free BitDefender mess

I've been busy.
I shut down the computer, unplugged router, replugged and network/web are fine.

I reinstalled Revo Uninstaller, which killed every last bit of BitDefender without a premium license. Tried restoring to 2 diff restore points, but got an error message that "An anti-virus may be running." Nothing is running

Switched monitors, and this one is HP LV2311. Resol was wrong again
Installed driver, rebooted, resol still wrong.
Native is 1920x1080, but Display is showing highest at 1280x 1024 True Color 32 bit.


So I have just the display problem now. Screenshot of my backup folder of all drivers. I make these with each new computer.

I don't know how to disassemble the case to check the display card. Top, left and front of the case are all one piece.But I think the graphics card is onboard. It's Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

Go to this Intel link and run the auto detector to see which one it recommends you use that's from 2020, also could use the one below as it's the Original one but very old.

Intel(R) Driver & Support Assistant

Driver - HP Pavilion p6-2100 Desktop PC series | HP(R) Customer Support

EDIT: your case should open like this http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03870877

Assistant wouldn't install because "You don't have permission to create the StartMenu shortcut." I did it as Admin. I've had that with other installations and don't have time to fix it.


Got the 2012 driver in, (actually 6 years newer than mine) rebooted, still the same. I have to stop this because I have to get some work done tomorrow. I've made some adjustments to the fonts.
I'll get used to the stretched screen till I can buy a new graphics card, and disable the onboard.
What card should I buy? I'm an average user, don't game or design graphics that would require a premium card. I shop at a local MicroCenter, but Ebay might be better for an old style card.

Thanks for your time

BTW--both of the monitors I tried worked fine on my Gateway without any special installation.

I think you might have the actual OS screwed up but this is a good add in if you don't need much power and will power it self with just the slot. It also has good drivers. EVGA GeForce 210 Low Profile Single-Fan 1GB - Micro Center

In the future might want to run a heath check. Use DISM to fix issues SFC can't - gHacks Tech News

Many thanks for sticking with me all weekend. Can I use Dism++? I've used it only for Win updates, and the directions are literally in Chinese.

I have a 3rd computer I've been meaning to transfer my work to, but I haven't had time to install Win7 + programs. It's blank right now. Then I can clean up the OS in this one.

Not sure but the built in one in the guide is what I always use and have used to even fix a non booting system.

One last comment--I put the first troublesome monitor back on my Gateway, and it works fine at 1600x 900 with no fiddling, so the problem on the HP is definitely the video card. Many thanks for your time. And I'm all done with BitDefender.

Can free BitDefender and MSE live together happily?
That's the question. MSE works pretty well but it seems BitDefender gets high marks (everyone is assuming the free version is using much of the same engine found in the pay version - I hope that's true). I'd like to give it a try if they can work together without stepping on each other.
