    I do not know where or how I got Bytefence but it has showed up in the notification area and is prompting me to buy an update. Is this free, necessary, helpful, or what? I did not recall hearing of it and was going to remove it. Would like some opinions.

    Yes, remove it.
    If you have problems with the uninstall, please let us know.
    It was probably part of something else that you downloaded and you don't want it.

    Sounds like BGBG, you may benefit from installing Unchecky.

    The free version only scans for malware.... It does not remove any malware.
    So a complete waste of time.

    BGBG: Because you don't know how ByteFence got onto your machine, it may be been inadvertently installed by you. You may have not unchecked some option when you downloaded some other application.

    Suggest you install Unchecky which will help in such instances. It's not perfect, but it may help. Here's the link https://unchecky.com/
