    Is there a way to stop or pause a scheduled scan once it has started? I know I can do this with a manual scan, but I couldn't find a way to stop one that is scheduled.

    TIA

    Hello, yes. Open Control center and go to "Computer scan" card. There you can stop or pause running test.

    Regards

    Yes I tried that, but it just seemed to start a new scan. Perhaps I'm missing something? I'll have another look.

    Thanks

    EDIT:
    Yes, just tried it again, and there's no option to stop the scheduled scan. It just shows the status of the scan. If I click on Standard Scan, a new scan starts, which I can stop. If I click on Custom Scan, it shows the dialog to choose scan locations. Nothing seems to give the option to stop the running scheduled scan.

    Hi all,

    Just loaded up V3 ... once again to see how it runs. I seem to have the same problem as pondlife. The scan activates on startup which I do not want, and I can`t find a way of stopping it. I have in "Schedule" deactivated "Automatic startup file check" and rebooted.

    Scan starts with computer boot once more.

    Any idea's

    Cheers Webby
