How to schedule a scan

In the New Bitdefender, you can schedule a scan periodically. It is recommended to run a scan once or twice per month. In order to perform this, please open the main interface using the Bitdefender icon from your desktop. Under the Antivirus panel you should have the Scan now -> Manage scans.

In the window that will open you can schedule a default scan (using the Quick Scan or System Scan profiles) or create a New custom scan.

By pressing the Schedule button, you will turn on task scheduler and the scanning task will be set to Once, Periodically or At system startup.

When this scan is done, Bitdefender will take proper action for all detected malware and if needed, the PC will have to be rebooted to perform the cleanup.
