Re: ome of the users in Payment Services Department somehow having scanning pause.

The Threat Prevention module supports traditional scans that start based on the schedule set
by administrators. Scans will run until they are complete—without waiting for the idle condition.
Administrators can also configure the user message, duration of the message, and the maximum
number of times a user can postpone the scan by one hour.
Please note that on-demand scans can be configured to run anytime or only when the system is
idle. Both scan types require a schedule and frequency.
Here is an example of anytime scanning and idle-time scanning for a full scan scheduled to start
weekly on Mondays at 10 am.
The full scan starts at 10 am. However, if the user is active on the system, the full scan
pauses immediately and waits for the system to become idle before it resumes. The
scan continues pausing and resuming until the full scan for that week is complete.
When the “Scan Anytime” option is selected, the full scan starts at 10 am and continues
to run until it finishes (as it does in McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8).
It is recommended that the “Scan only when the system is idle” option be used for desktops and
laptops because these systems are typically idle at some intervals during the day. “Scan anytime” is
best suited for servers, as they don’t typically enter an idle state.
