MSE Scheduled Scan Problem

I installed MSE last week and I really like it, but I am having a problem with it. I cant get it to run a scheduled scan. I keep moving the time back to try and get it to work but it wont. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have the check box unchecked that says to only run a scan when the computer is not in use. Anybody know why its not working? Thanks
