Windows 7: Every other day, MSE asks me to do a scan

Every other day, MSE asks me to do a scan

Hey guys!

I have noticed that every other day, MSE's system tray icon turns into yellow and tells me that I am potentially unprotected because I haven't scanned my computer for a while. MSE notified me a while ago and so I did a scan. The last scan I peformed before tonight was last Wednesday. Unlike before, I have to wait for a week or longer for MSE to notify me to perform a scan. Is this happening to you?

I'm running MSE v2 beta and I have set a scheduled scan every Sunday at 10:00am.

Thanks a lot,
Francis

Perhaps one of these solutions might work for you:

- The date and time on the PC are incorrect, check the month/day/year/time and fix them and reboot

OR

- reinstall MSE

OR

- go to the settings tab and turn off auto scans

The date and time aren't incorrect, and reinstalling MSE would be my last resort. I have unchecked the scheduled scan option. I'll observe MSE's behaviour tomorrow. Gotta go to bed. Good night!
