I am testing the new VSE 8.7.0i product and I know this will sound weird, but i am struggling to understand the " Defer Scans" new feature.

I have setup a " On Demand Scan " with the user ability to defer scan for 1 hour. The process will start off saying, scan is about to run, select YES or DEFER... i select Defer, but when u go to the VirusScan console, i am able to stop the entire scan process which is not good.

Is there a way i can prevent the user from stopping the scan process completely and only have it deferred....for that hour?

My 2nd question is : Increment Scans, what is the best practice for setting up Increment Scans...i run scans once a week on all my laptops, workstations? Need to know best practive for increment scans?

Access protection policies/Common standard protection:
Prevent termination of McAfee proceses

You can also check the box "prevent mcafee services from being stopped" but then even domain admins can't kill a scan if necessary happy
