Does Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition use the cloud or downloaded signatures when scanning a Windows 7 PC? Does a scan work when a PC is not connected to the Internet?

Any contemporary antivirus with a cloud component also uses a signature file for the very reason you stated. It is not "either/or" but "both or on-board signatures when there's no internet connectivity."
