    Last night I added an on demand scan to run every Friday at 20:00 and a smart scan to run every Wednesday.

    This morning I rebooted NOD v3 vis the kill process as I had done some excluding work on BoClean. A couple of minutes after I noticed 3 scans start simultaniously. The 2 scans I set for next week were running, plus one with my computer id listed on the scan page, which I presume is an inbuilt feature as I had killed the ekrn.exe rather than reboot the PC.

    Is this right?

    I had similar when I switched on my computer this morning. I have a weekly scan of local drives set to run at 10.00hrs every Sunday, using the In-Depth profile. In the settings, I selected that it should run as soon as possible, if not started at the scheduled time. Last week, the computer was on, and it ran fine.

    This morning, I turned the computer on at 10.07hrs and the scan started three times simultaneously. I thought it was just me :blink:

    I also have set-up some scheduled on demand scans and I also noticed that 3 on demand scans are launched at the same this. Is this a bug or working as designed?
