I have been a Bitdefender user for several years and have never before been offered a free upgrade.
On 6 August I receiver an offer of a discounted upgrade (as in previous years). On 8 August I received an offer of a free upgrade.
I proceeded with the free offer, which was successful, but I also ended up with the dreaded fbdownloader.
Could the second offer have been from someone other than Bitdefender who had intercepted their upgrade offers.

There has been quite a number of free 6/9 month promotional offers from Bitdefender in the last month or so, check these forums for details. Yes it is highly likely that the one you chose came with other "crap" bundled with the download as this is certainly something that Bitdefender themselves would not do.
