Scheduling of scanner...how to stop 2:00 AM scan?

Recommended Posts

SAS scans @ 2:00 AM.  How do I stop this scan?

 

It's not listed in the WIN7 scheduler, and not in SAS scheduler.  How do I stop this scan?

 

Cheers!

Hi Jim,

 

Under the Updates tab uncheck Scheduled Definition Updates.

 

Failing that you could try selecting Reset Program Options. :)

Any SUPERAntiSpyware Scheduled Scans will show when clicking the blue "Configure.." link next to Scheduled Scanning. SUPERAntiSpyware uses the Windows Task Scheduler to run scheduled scans, so any scheduled scans will have to appear in the Task Scheduler as well.

Thanks...Yes, that's how SAS is suppose to work, but it's not.  Still getting scans @2:00 AM.

 

SAS scheduler shows no 2:00 AM scan.

WIN7 scheduler shows no 2:00 AM scan

Automatic Upates is not checked.

 

But consistent 2:00 AM scan over past several days.

Thoughts?

@jimlarkey : Just dropping in for an additional info :

in the Windows Task Scheduler, did you also check "in" Task Scheduler Library (I mean clicking one time on this line) ?

This is were I find all the scheduled tasks for SAS.

OK, problem fixed...did a uninstall/install, as recommended by SAS tech support, after diagnostic scan.

 

The scheduler must have been badly corrupted because I'm seeing a lot of options in the current that were not in the former.  This morning was the 1st time I did a scan NOT @ 2:00 AM!

 

Thanks for being there guys.
