Is there any way that I can get File Checker to only check ONCE a day That is... on demand? Understand my question please -- I am NOT asking for the program to be changed. Rather I am asking what *I* might possibly do -- as a work-around to achieve on-demand scanning -- within the PRESENT state oif the program. If there IS a way to achieve this, please be aware that I have to pull my car over to the side of the road to honk the horn. Ergo, the mere thought of doing techno-stuff like messing with the Windows registry causes intense constrictions in my nethermost sphincter. Yes, I am aware that on-demand scanning is risky. However, my small, quite elderly computer simply cannot handle any more stuff running in the background.
