BitDefender Online Scanner scans your computer for viruses and other malware and cleans them directly from Internet Explorer. BitDefender Online Scanner opens in a separate window when you start it from its Web page. If you have a pop-up blocker running on your computer, nothing may happen when you click the "Start Scanner" button on the Web page. You can open BitDefender Online Scanner by disabling your pop-up blocker before continuing.
