How do I scan ?

File or Folder

The easiest and recommended way to scan a file or folder is to right-click the object you want to scan, point to Bitdefender and select Scan with Bitdefender from the menu. To complete the scan, follow the Antivirus Scan wizard. Bitdefender will automatically take the recommended actions on detected files.

If there remain unresolved threats, you will be prompted to choose the actions to be taken on them.

Typical situations when you would use this scanning method include the following:

  • You suspect a specific file or folder to be infected.

  • Whenever you download from the Internet files that you think they might be dangerous.

  • Scan a network share before copying files to your computer.
