BDAGENT - das ist der Agent des Antivirenprogramms, also gar nicht gefährlich, es ist gefährlich, diesen Prozess zu beenden :)
It is a Bitdefender executable file, that often remains on the computer and interferes with other programs. Go to http://bitdefender.com/uninstall, and save the program to your computer, then run it. It should clean up all files, including bdagent.exe

I know that I won't use your web site again because you're are not being sincere with the info and are creating a fear rather than explanation like for example www.what-is-exe.com.
I just want the file off my computer. it has caused me all kinds of grief in that I have security software and I got this dam thing by error (I think through Safepay). It is a cute trick by Bitdefender to give you the file and then try to sell you software to get rid of it. There should be a law.
