    Should be fairly easy. Have you tried an uninstall of Kaspersky and clean install of Bitdefender? Did you run into any problems? If so post back the error messages and we can see if we can help straighten it out.

    You did not mention the OS name here. Did you uninstall the same? If yes, what method have you taken to uninstall that like built-in utility/used any external tool. Why you wanted to change that one? Is there any special reason? Is there any error message shown?

    Moreover if you search for free AV, you can try avast which is good and as using it has strong virus scanning utility, just a free registration is required.

    There are numerous AV programs out there. Basic ones that you run to scan your system data on a demand basis to real-time full protection that includes thing like emails and other options. What type of coverage are you looking for and are you looking for a free option? If not, how many users are we looking to provide protection for and what is your budget like?

    I mean replacing Antivirus in VDI environment (VMware Horizon Host and Windows 10 zero clients). Must I recreate OS image again with new Anti virus? Should I recreate all VMs?

    Yes, you can create an image again and it is safe and better way to apply for new process.

    Yes, I'd create a new OS image. It should be a part of your disaster recovery process. Other wise if your system fails you will have to do this whole process over again after the old OS image was restored.

    There may be more to this, but: Uninstall the old and reinstall the new? Be careful with "free" software...With antivirus, you get what you pay for! Just ask Target and their refrigeration vendor.
