    I have EAV version 4 set to do a weekly scan on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. If the scan does not happen at that time, I have it set to "Run task immediately if time since last execution exceeds specified interval" - (one hour).

    The last time a scan was run was on 11 Mar and nothing since.

    Anybody else have any problems with scheduled on-demand scans.....or am I missing some setting for this very important task.

    Thanks and have a great day.

    Bill

    I was having same problem. My AV 4 is running on Vista. I had forgotten to check "save" in the in depth scanning profile which pops up after you finish scheduling. You might want to edit the schedule so as to bring up the "on demand schedule profile". Worth a try.

    I've set up a scheduled scan on my laptop with the "Run task immediately if time since last execution exceeds specified interval" option set one hour just for a test. I then closed the lid to put the laptop to sleep during the scheduled time.

    On waking laptop about an hour later, no scan started. I used the laptop for about 30 minutes, but nothing. I then rebooted and a scan started immediately on startup/logon.

    Is this similar to your issue, or have you rebooted since the scheduled scan time?

    Finally!!!!

    I went into the setup and rescheduled the scan for today at 2:35 p.m. and wha-la....it worked.

    Now, I'll hold my breath until next Monday and see if it works again....:doubt:

    Maybe EAV just doesn't work on weekends....:rolleyes:

    Now to go fishing....:cool:
