    How to control McAfee scheuled tasks?

      Hello!  I have

       

      • VirusScan Enterprise 8.7.0i
      • Engine 5400.1158
      • DAT 6350.0000
      • Installed Patches: 3
      • Windows Server 2008 Standard 64-bit

       

      There are a number of scheduled tasks I see logged under McScript.log (C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Common Framework\DB\McScript.log).  These tasks run at:

       

      • 12:00
      • 14:00
      • 15:00
      • 18:00
      • 21:00

       

      The one that is underlined (14:00) seems to run once a day, and the others run every 3 hours. 

       

      The log entry for the one that runs once a day has the command line:

       

      START [C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\McScript_InUse.exe -script C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Common Framework\UpdateMain.McS -id 15501 -localeid 0409 -parent FRAMEWORK -logfile C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Common Framework\DB\McScript -initiator 2 -ipcid \\.\pipe\upda23012 -installdir C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework -silent]

       

      The log entry for the one that runs three times a day is:

       

      START [C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\McScript_InUse.exe -script C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Common Framework\UpdateMain.McS -id 25485 -localeid 0409 -parent FRAMEWORK -logfile C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Common Framework\DB\McScript -initiator 1 -ipcid \\.\pipe\upda14140 -installdir C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework]

       

      I can't seem to find a way to control these times via the UI.  How do I change these times?

       

      Thanks!
