With the rapid and changing landscape of malware, it may happen that on occasion, virus protection software is not able to detect all types of malware. BitDefender differs in that it is designed to conduct quick, on-the-fly scans that provide a second opinion as to whether your computer is infected or not.
To keep the QuickScan as fast as possible, BitDefender Quickscan does not have any cleaning or quarantine capabilities. If it detects a threat or virus, you then need to conduct a full system scan using your own antivirus software to remove the security risk.
