May I ask what Version /Build you are running? There is a New Version being throttled out as we speak 15.1r2, which has the next Generation Scanning Engine. In this build the Scheduled scan (has been) added back. Albeit being a *Quick Scan*, you can of course run a *Full Scan* manually.
To schedule your scan Open your McAfee Security Center/Navigation/Scheduled Scan/expand and set scan.
While the New Version and Build scans less files, and performance has been enhanced. You can be self-assured that your Protection has not been effected.McAfee also has a *Pledge*
New Scanning Engine new LAM ( Lightweight anyimalware) install FAQs
Also the Client Analytics issue (has) been resolved.
Note: The FAQ above is basically is for the 15.0R0 Version.The FAQ for the 15.1r2 is forthcoming.
I am running Total Protection - V15.1 R2 on W7
I am running Total Protection - V14.0 R13 on W10 (Installed yesterday)
I see that in navigation/scheduled scan there is the option to schedule. Previously, when you clicked on 'Schedule and run scans' you got a third choice on the screen below - to schedule a scan - on W10 it was there yesterday morning and not there yesterday evening. In any event as long as it can be reached from navigation I'm fine with that.
I do notice that when you go into security report you don't see the date of the next scheduled scan. That used to be there.
I agree that it was in that location the prior version. Since you know how to set the scheduled scan,can we consider this answered?

I have brought it up as a Topic of Discussion on our Conference Call Monday. Requesting that *Scheduled Scan* be placed back in the original area as before also.
1. MarkR Scheduled Scan difficult for users to locate CD
yes. this is answered regarding where to find it to set it.
Now I have to see that it actually scans - it is scheduled on a W10 machine for Sun @ 12:20 A.M. - so tomorrow morning I will see if it scanned.
Thank you If it indeed does so, kindly mark this thread appropiately as 'Correctly Answered', so other individuals will know where to go to set a scan.
Hope this helped..
All the best
Also I might add as you can see in my prior *Screenshot*. I had a Scheduled scan set to run this morning @ 4;00am, and every first Saturday of the first of the month. Unfortunately it did not? So please apprise us if yours does.
I have marked my solution to the problem of not knowing where to (Set) as *Helpful*, and unmarked it as 'Correct Answer"
