How do I create a custom scan task?

If you want to scan specific locations on your computer or to configure the scanning options, configure and run a Custom Scan.

To create a customized scan task, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the Bitdefender window.

  2. On the Antivirus panel, click Scan Now and select Custom Scan from the drop-down menu.

  3. Click Add Target to select the files or folders to be scanned.

  4. If you want to configure the scanning options in detail, click Scan Options.

    You can easily configure the scanning options by adjusting the scan level. Drag the slider along the scale to set the desired scan level.

    You can also choose to shutdown the computer when the scan is over if no threats are found. Remember that this will be the default behavior everytime you run this task.

  5. Click Start Scan and follow the Antivirus Scan wizard to complete the scan. At the end of the scan, you will be prompted to choose the actions to be taken on the detected files, if any.

  6. If you want to save the scan task for future use, open the custom scan configuration window again.

  7. Locate the scan you have just run in the Recent scans list.

  8. Go with the mouse cursor over the name of the scan and click the to add the scan to the Favorite Scans list.
