    If anyone has ever followed my posts, they will know that I have have several snapshots or different configurations. One of which has WSA installed.

    Well I have noticed that when I switch to that one, that there is lot of harddisk activity as evidenced by the tower light staying on for an inordinate length of time. I don't input my login password until this light stops its activity.

    Then finally when I enter the login password, and the desktop icons have loaded, I invariably notice that WSA is/has been very active, and that my CPU temp is a little high for my liking. I like to keep the CPU temp below 60 degrees.

    I imagine it's a scheduled scan taking place because it will have missed a previous scan time when not booted into the snapshot.

    I seem to recall that I mentioned this sort of thing with you, before, and thought it was then fixed. ;)

    P.S. I wish I knew how to use the forum search function, competently, to try and find my previous posts, but....:doubt:

    Also, I don't know why scans are being handled the way they are, because it wasn't like this in the past. BTW, I never initiated these scans. These are WSA initiated.

    This looks normal - it's scanning again because it was offline. I don't think there's any issue here :)

    I changed the scan schedule as follows, then rebooted, and it boots faster and WSA is not scanning a boot, which is what I wanted, all along :)
