    SCHEDULED SCAN GONE???

    Zeewatchful Eye

      I happened to notice (not sure how long it has been like this) but SCHEDULED SCANS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE FROM TOTAL PROTECTION.

       

      Is this intentional?  If NOT intentional, when will scheduled scans return?

       

      I happened to discover on both of my two Windows 7 computers that the option to schedule scans has completely disappeared.  The scheduling referenced in the Vulnerability
      Scanner is NOT applicable to scheduled scanning.  Simply, on neither of my Windows  computers do I have any option to set my default scan day and time.  The last scan was yesterday (Wednesday) which seems to now be the default, but I am not sure about the time.

       

      My systems scanned soon after the computers were powered on for the day, which was an unusual time to power them on, so I won't confuse anyone with the time that both of them were started up for that day, but there IS NO SCANNING SCHEDULE OPTION in Total Protection, anywhere except in Vulnerability
      Scanner, and that one is NOT applicable.

       

      Help, please!!!!!

       

      Thank you all, as always.

          Could you please provide us your Version/Build? Also try opening your McAfee GUI/Navigation/Sroll down to *Scheduled Scan* expand and you can schedule a *Quick Scan*. And manually run a Full Scan.

            As you can see you are still capable of scheduling a scan.Capture.PNG

              Hi Zeewatchful Eye, My McAfee just upgraded to version 15.1 R 2 and I also noticed that the location of Scheduled Scans had changed. However, it is not completely removed from the program. Please refer to the below screenshots.Screenshot.PNGScreenshot 2.PNG

                As I said , it is still available just in a different location. Thanks for the confirmation Also after opening 'Scheduled Scan' If he expands the button he will see my 'Screenshot' of setting the scan.  I might add that I am running 15.1r2 also. Eventually the New installer will provide the (Blue) GUI and replace the (Green) one for McAfee Total Protection as well.

                  Total Protection is Version 15.1, Release name is 15.1 R2,  My screens are not as has been shown above.  There is no SCHEDULED SCAN, although there WAS (not so long ago).  I have also run MVT, and I am getting a notification that 7 files are missing, but the MVT is apparently not capable of repairing the problem(s).  Further info from my versions is listed:

                  I no longer have any ability to schedule scans.

                   

                  Any suggestions?

                    OKAY, I FOUND IT -- THANKS SO MUCH!!!!1

                     

                    ACTUALLY, it is located further down in the Navigation Center list of items, alphabetically, immediately beneith Home Network Defense. For those that might be looking for where it has been moved to, look at this list and also, look at the position of the scroll bar to get an idea of how far down it is:

                     

                     

                    AND JUST CLICK ON "SCHEDULED SCAN" FOR THAT FAMILIAR MENU THAT USED TO BE LOCATED AMONGST THE SCANNING OPTIONS.

                     

                    Thank you very much!!!!  (Sorry for replying to my own post, but I thought it was the quickest way of answering this question, and since I am not the only one that asked about this, I am hopeful this reply will help others.

                      Glad you finally figured it out After looking at your initial screenshots, I realized you had not 'Scrolled' down far enough.

                      Locking this as it has been answered.

                       

                      All the best
