The Scheduled Scans section contains a list of all scheduled scan jobs displayed as tiles. Each tile lists the scan type, a summary of the scan interval and the amount of time remaining until the next scan interval.

Scheduled scans can run unattended, which means they can run without showing the scan screen or scan progress to the user. Unattended scans can run if no user is logged on in Windows. The animated scan icon (magnifier glass in the system tray) indicates that an unattended scan is running. You can open the scanner window by clicking on the animated system tray icon. If you close the scanner window, the scan will continue. Unattended scan results are notified as follows:

  • If no administrator account is logged in: the scan results are saved to the scan log.
  • If one administrator account is logged in: the Scanner window will appear, to provide you with information.
  • If more than one administrator account is logged in: a notification will be shown to all administrator accounts. For the administrator whom confirms first, the Scanner window will appear. notifications for the other administrator accounts will be closed automatically.
  • Don’t start scheduled scans in Game Mode – Prevents interruptions in resource intensive games by ensuring that scheduled scans don’t start if Game Mode is active.

Clicking on the Add new scan button (or clicking an existing scan job tile if you wish to edit it) opens a dialog with the following tabs for configuring scan time, frequency and other advanced options:

When

Scan the computer

  • Every [x] hour [x] min between [x] and [x] – At specified hour/minute intervals during selected time frames (e.g every 5 hours between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM).
  • At [x] – Run at a set time (e.g 1.00 PM).
  • After – PC startup/Online update

Recur

  • Monthly – On a particular day of the month (e.g. the 1st of every month).
  • Weekly – On selected days of the week ( e.g. only on Fridays and Saturdays).
  • Daily – Every day.

The checkbox Enabled indicates whether this specific scan is currently enabled or disabled. The Run now button allows you to manually start this scan and the Delete schedule button allows you to remove this scan from the list of scheduled scans.

What

Scan type – The dropdown menu allows you select from either [Quick Scan][Malware Scan], or [Custom Scan]. If Custom Scan is selected, a Configure button will be visible and open a further dialog with all Custom Scan settings.

Advanced settings

  • Update before scanning – Configures the software to check for updates before performing the scheduled scan, if the last update was more than 30 minutes ago. It is recommended that you enable this option if automatic updates are disabled or set to a long interval. This option will be unavailable when “After online update” is selected in the “When” tab.
  • Scan silently – Configures the scheduled scan to run invisibly to prevent disruption to your work. An animated system tray icon is displayed to indicate the active scan. You can open the scanner window by clicking on the animated system tray icon.
  • Run missed scans on next startup – If the computer is not turned on at the specified time, the missed scan will be executed when you next start the computer, unless more than a third of the time before the next scan interval has already passed.
  • Detect Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) – PUPs are programs that are not dangerous by definition, but are usually unwanted by most users as they display ads or manipulate browsers. Value is copied from Scanner settings but can be changed here.
  • Performance impact – Advises Windows to give the scanning threads the specified priority over other running processes. Priority can be set to a minimum to avoid negatively affecting the performance of other active tasks, e.g. when running lengthy background scans. Value is copied from Scanner settings but can be changed here.
  • On scan completion– If you are scanning a large number of files that are expected to take a long time then you may wish to use the On scan completion setting to define what the program should do when the scan finishes. Value is copied from Scanner settings but can be changed here.
