Where Is "scan With Bitdefender 2009" Opton?



I'm new here.

I use Bit Defender a couple of year backward and I'm a happy user of this product.

Since I migrated from XP 32bit to XP 64bit i lost a function in TotalCommander so I need help.

When a open windows explorer and right click on a file a have in the pop up menu a menu option "Scan with Bit Defender 2009",

but in most of time I use Total Commander and if I click there on a file with my right mouse button I didn't get

"Scan with Bit Defender 2009" option in the pop up menu but in the Bit Defender 2009 x32 version on XP x32 I have this option.

Can somebody help me to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot.
