    Just out of curiosity, why would the NOD32 scheduler have a delay of more than a minute in some cases?

    This is not a big deal, really. But for a while, I had been launching VBScript I wrote with Windows scheduler. Since the script is related to NOD32, I thought I'd try to launch it from within NOD. That's when I noticed how imprecise the NOD scheduler was.

    - When launching external apps, launch delay was consistantly 47+ seconds beyond the scheduled launch time

    - When launching a scheduled scan, scan launch ranged anywhere from 23 - 45+ seconds beyond scheduled launch.

    FYI - when launching an external app, I found that you have to include a working directory (which is usually an opptional thing).

    Like I said, just curious.

    I've actually noticed the same behaviour just using Win2K's scheduler. I also have a VBscript that kills and restarts two services at 2:00AM, and it logs anywhere between 2:00:00 and 2:00:23. Never really got too worried about it - I mean, we're not launching a space probe or anything... ;-) I agree that it would be nice to have it a bit more precise so that I could schedule things a bit tighter than at ten minute intervals (just to make sure).

    Had Windows Task Scheduler exhibited the same behavior (i.e. launch delays), I would have assumed that the behavior was typical. But here (contrary to your experience), Windows Task Scheduler launches exactly as scheduled (no delay that I can measure easily) as do third-party schedulers (freeware) that I've used.

    So, I thought it was a NOD thing.

    Thanks.
