I scheduled a full system scan to run every Tuesday at 7:30pm. If the pc is off, the rule is that it should run as soon as possible. I've only had NOD32 a few weeks, and the first time my pc was off at the scheduled time, the scan did indeed run the next time I booted up. But this time, the result was very different. The pc was off last night at 7:30, so I expected the scan to take place this morning, but it didn't. What makes this even stranger is that the log shows a scan but with zero items scanned. And it is stuck with an "in progress" status, even though nothing is (or was) being scanned. If I double-click on that entry, the scan log box is empty. Further confusing the issue, if I go to the Computer Scan section in the advanced view, it correctly lists my actual previous scan (an ad-hoc one) as the lastest. I suppose it is ignoring the one that (falsely) says "in-progress" in the log. Any ideas on what might be happening? At first I thought the scheduler was just failing to follow the rule , but this "in-progress-but nothing-is-happening" phantom scan makes it even more perplexing. Either way I'd like to solve this. It's a little worrisome since I need to depend on the program to operate properly. Thanks.
