Run daily scan

Jump to solution

How do I set up McAfee LiveSafe to run a daily full scan? Other antivirus products I have used offer this ability. I am not satisfied with a weekly (or less often) scan. I can't seem to find an option to run a scan every day at a set time.

Hi @TJ_Hudson 

McAfee has a feature that lets you schedule scan weekly, monthly and also everyday. 

Please follow the below steps to configure schedule scan to run everyday,

1. Open McAfee Console
2. Click PC Security tab
3. Click Scheduled scans menu at the left pane
4. Click Turn on button
5. Under Create my own scan schedule, select all the days and Time you want to schedule the scan and click apply.
6. Please make sure the computer is turned On and idle during the scheduled time.

Please follow the above steps and McAfee will run a scan everyday. Let us know if you have any queries

Thank you. That worked. I only wish McAfee were more clear about these things right on the screens, or that Help actually answered these kinds of basic questions.
