    Hi members.

    Well, I don't know if this is normal or not.

    Of course ESS made a "Start up scan" when I first started the PC as always.
    And now after the PC has been on for 7 hours it does a "Start up Scan" again.

    So how come :doubt:

    Hi,

    I think it's because you left "startup scan file check" enabled in the scheduler, the one that's triggered by a successful database update. In this case, a startup scan can be run anytime the virus database is updated and not really at start-up.

    Right I see.

    Well maybe it should be called something else then, than START-UP scan :p
    when it scans at times other than at start up.

    Like (Update scan) after an update since I belive it scanned after the 4988 update that's why I noticed it.

    But I understand why now anyway, Thanks :)

    You're welcome.

    And I agree it's not very aptly named.
