Scheduled Scans

I am not sure where this question should go.

My LiveSave has recently been running  full scans three times a week without being scheduled. Is this something to be concerned about?

Thanks.

Jerry

Re: Scheduled Scans

Scheduled scans are now not actually full scans but quick scans. What version of McAfee have you? Latest is 16.3. Have you checked the scheduled scan area?

If you say all ok bar this I will ask about this in our moderator call tomorrow.

Re: Scheduled Scans

I agree with Tony..Something definitely is wrong. Especially if you are automatically receiving scheduled (Full Scans)?

Actually Version/Build 16.4 is due to start being released late September. I also agree we need to bring this up as a Topic of Discussion on September 11th,2017.

Generally the norm is that all of the different suites have the same Virus Scan Engine.

Re: Scheduled Scans

I have been running full scans every so often. I didn't run one yesterday. The reason I know this was a full scan is by the number of files it scanned 206767 files. On August 22 a Tuesday the scheduler was suppose to run on Mondays the number of files was 6390 files.

Re: Scheduled Scans

This is strange Are they happening at a particular time or random? Nothing in task scheduler?

They happen different at times. There is nothing in the task scheduler.

Re: Scheduled Scans

Have there been any decisions from the Techs? Will there be an add-on in the future for the scheduling so you can choose witch scan and the times?

Thank you.

Re: Scheduled Scans

Hi Jerry,

              To be completely honest I will have to check with the Engineer, and get back with you on this. In short order I hope.

Thanks
