On Mac Catalina OS - System Scan & Quick scan stopping halfway through never completing


For some reason I am no longer able to scan my hard-drive entirely with my Bitdefender Pro for Mac.

Everything else appears to be working ok except the scan function.

It stalls on the same file every time - /System/Library/launchagents/.com.apple.mdworker.shared.plist

I have tried it under the following situations -

  • Full Disk access BDLDaemon only
  • Full Disk Access BOTH BDLDaemon & Bitdefender Antivirus

I have restarted a couple of times also. Still stalls on the same file.

Please help!
