Windows 7: MSE thrashing disks after boot.

MSE thrashing disks after boot.

Ive noticed that MSE seems to do a hidden scan after you boot up and get to the desktop. Doesnt always do it but sometimes. Is there a way to prevent it from doing this?

There is no option in the MSE interface and I cant see any option in task scheduler.

Yep, it does and you cant even kill the process. Its a little bit annoying

......also MSE removes any modified 'HOST' file you might have and replaces it with the
generic one. Does not ask permission either......

I dont (at least manually) use the hosts file.

The only thing I have against avast is the regular 'rearming' of your registration.

Maybe I just don't care but most of what was said on this thread, that MSE does, doesn't bother me.

If it wants to scan, I'll let it. Long as it doesn't effect me much.

If it does its job correctly I keep it, and I have. Used it since the beta.

Im with you on MSE except the scaning thing. Most AV's let you schedule and have a smart start up scan. I thinkk MSE is really good at what it does im just nit picking

Trouble is, its options are rather limited.
