Scheduled scans don't run? Scans not in history?

Windows 10 Pro 19043.1052. My scheduled scans don't run on either of my PCs. I understand that McAfee doesn't believe in scheduled scans anymore, but if they offer them, they should actually run. Plus scans aren't logged in the history. I see McAfee run a scan when I start up or sometimes randomly during the day, but these aren't logged.

To try to get the scheduled scans to run, I've moved them from overnight to during working hours (inconvenient). I've changed the screen settings to 1 hour and sleep to 2 hours. Still only runs a "weekly" scan maybe once a month. Did everyone else just give up on running scans?

Hi @ElaineQ 

We are truly sorry for the trouble caused.

Please follow the Article and let us know if the issue still persists. Also, kindly confirm if the scans are getting successfully completed, to take investigate this issue further.
