Re: scan time

Just spotted this in the wrong area so moved it.   Not knowing whether you have the 2009 or 2010 version I will try to explain both.

If your  taskbar icon is a red square with a white M inside then it's the 2009 version and the following apply:

Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter

Click Advanced Menu (bottom)

Click Configure (left)

Click Computer & Files (top left)

Click Advanced (right)

Click Scheduled Scan (left)

If your taskbar icon is a white-rimmed red shield with a white M in the middle then it's the 2010 version.

Double-click that icon to open SecurityCenter

Click Realtime Scanning to expand

Click Scheduled Scan Settings.

Hope that helps and sorry to take so long to answer.
