I have scheduled a full scan for every Mon. at 6:30 PM. Sometimes it works. Once it did not scan at all. Yesterday (Mon), it scanned at 9:55 AM and shows the next scheduled scan on Mon. at 5:30 PM. I changed the schedule to Mon. at 6:30 PM, clicked "apply" and it saved, but it still shows the next scheduled scan to be for Mon. at 5:30 PM. It seems to set its own random schedule. What can I do to fix this? I'm using Windows 7.
Make sure your computer's time/date settings are set correctly also try to make Internet Explorer as your default browser and check the status
Yes, the time and date are set correctly. I don't want to use Internet Explorer, but will change only to test the scan schedule, if that's what you mean.
I made IE my default browser and changed the schedule settings and clicked apply. When I closed McAfee and opened it again, the schedule had returned back to my original settings (which it somehow overrides anyway) and the Scheduled Scans section above read next scan for Mon. 11/8/10 at 5:30 PM. I had entered 6:30 PM. Maybe that one is due to the time change coming up. At any rate, it still doesn't function properly.
