Why does scheduled scan never start at the time that McAfee states?

Jump to solution

Ever since the new McAfee (2011) has been installed, my weekly scan never starts on time.  McAfee will then post a new time.  When that time arrives, it then gives ANOTHER new time.  When that new time arrives, I get YET another new time.  This can go one for several hours before the scan actually begins.  By this time, it is running in the background and takes 3-4 X as long to scan.  I did not have this issue with the "old" McAfee.

Can anyone one assist me with this?  Thanks for your help.

I have checked with Tier 2 Support, and once the original scheduled scan start-time has elapsed, PC/Laptop must be "idle" for 15 minutes before scan will initiate.
