scan64.exe runs every four minutes for less than a second

I am running VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 on Windows 2012 Server, and I see in the windows event log that scan64.exe is starting and stopping every 4 minutes (give or take 5 seconds).  The process is called by

VsTskMgr.exe, and even continues when I disabled "On Acess Scanner" and "Access Protection" from the viruscan console.  There are no schedule on demand scans and nothing appears in the mcafee logs.  This happens every ~4 mins all day and night long. 


Has anyone else seen this behavior?  what is causing it?


I tried running mcafee profiler, but it crashes everytime i try to start capturing data, so can't tell what it is scanning.
