SAS won't check for definitions updates automatically before starting a scan. Can anyone tell me why? Win 7 64 bit version. I have it checked to do so.

Are you referring to the option on Preferences>General and Startup tab which is "Check for updates before scanning on startup"? If so, that works only if "Start a Quick Scan", "Start a Complete System Scan" or "Start a Custom Scan" is selected under Start-Up Scanning. These options automatically start a scan when SAS itself is started. There is no "Check for update" option on the Preferences>Updates tab that allows users to obtain an update check when manually starting a scan or when a scheduled scan starts. I wish there were such an option. Perhaps it will be in V5.0.

I'm talking about a scheduled scan. I have it to scan every night 9:15pm. The option is to check for updates before scanning.
