Re: Scheduled Scans?


I surely hope this works.  I am testing it to begin in FIVE minutes.  We will see. 

The real problem I was having is with Scheduled Scans which were set for 11:00pm, not starting until I'm in the middle of something the next day.  I won't go on and on because I've seen this posted numerous times and have adjusted my settings (again) to test it.  This has been going on for a LONG time and I rarely can accomplish a full scan because it takes too many resources while I am trying to use graphics programs, etc.

(Total Protection, latest version, Windows 7, 64bit)

My next issue might be that it will not begin on its own when the PC is Locked (not off). If that happens, I'll be back
