Bitdefender Virus Scanner is a Mac utility that, as its name clearly suggests, helps you find malware threats and viruses on your computer. This program provides you with a very intuitive interface, searches for malware inside various types of files, and immediately offers you the scan results.

The first thing you need to do before scanning your system for threats is to update the malware signatures (it only takes a few moments). Afterwards, you can select the proper scan method (Scan Critical Locations, Deep System Scan, and Scan a Custom Location) and let the program get the job done.

Furthermore, this program provides you with a solution in case it finds malware threats as it gives you direct access to the homepage of an adware removal tool (from Bitdefender as well).

In my testing, this program took less than 10 minutes to complete the Deep System Scan and, most importantly, it used a small amount of CPU resources while searching through my Mac. After checking the performance of various similar applications, I have to say that Bitdefender Virus Scanner really made an impression on me.

In conclusion, I'd say it's definitely worth installing this program on your Mac if you're looking for a capable virus scanner. The application is simple to handle, immediately offers you the results your require, and comes without a price tag.
