I am having this problem. I scheduled a full scan once a week, Sunday 11.30pm. however, the scan never starts...
my laptop was on and i was not working on it... I have also unchecked the option to wait till PC is idle.
there used to be a way to modify the registry to make it run on schedule. but now i can't seems to modify it to keep the scan on schedule.
any other solutions?
I am using windows 8 64-bit, running Mcafee internet security 2013 (security center version 11.6 (build 11.6.511) / VirusScan version 15.6 (build 15.6.245)
Moved to VirusScan for better handling.
There was a bug with one version that caused severe delays in scheduling. I'm wondering if you shouldn't try to get the most up to date version possible by doing the following:
Uninstall all McAfee in the normal manner. How to Uninstall, Change, or Repair a Program in Windows 7 and Windows 8
Run the MCPR Cleanup Tool and reboot.
Go to your online account and download a fresh copy from there.
The latest version doesn't have this bug and it also is more Windows 8 friendly for those with touch screens etc.
