Maybe i'm confused, but nothing new there!
I only setup a scheduled task to check for Updates every 4 hours.
For scans I use the MSE "built in" scheduler and make setting changes there.
I never had a problem with scheduled scans (as long as the PC was on at the scheduled time).
I don't see a need to set up a task for scans, as daily works for me...
i want them checked/updated more than once per day.
i don't want to be notified of an update available for THIS - i just want the definitions updated without any intervention by me...
Right now though it's really a question of "Do scheduled scans" work for Patricia?
If they don't, why and how to fix it...
