Why did Quick Scan upload a executable file from my computer?

Where it the privacy statement for this site?

Welcome to the forum. smile.gif

Did Quick Scan detect a virus and move the file to quarantine? If so, open BD and navigate to Settings-->Antivirus-->Quarantine and check the option Send quarantined files to BitDefender for further analysis. If the option is set to ON, you may want to change it to OFF.

The link to the Privacy Policy is at the bottom of the main BD web page.

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Please note that Quickscan does not modify or delete any file on your system and only uploads executable files for checking (i.e. NO documents or other data files are sent). The upside to that is you're safe. The downside is that Quickscan provides no virus removal either.

Thank you.
