Annoying bug "scheduled scan was missed"

Recommended Posts

Every single time my computer starts up in Windows 8.1, there is a popup saying "a scheduled scan was missed". I have manually run scans repeatedly and they have finished, but the popup appears every time.

 

 

Specs:

AMD FX-8350

Windows 8.1 64 bit

EVGA 780Ti SC

8GB DDR3

Sounds like maybe a scan was scheduled at a time when your PC was turned off or your user was logged out.  If you go into the properties for your scheduled scans, you can disable "run task as soon as possible if missed" and it should disable the missed task messages.  If that doesn't do the trick, let us know.

Ah yes, per the default settings, scheduled scans are set for 2AM every day. And like everyone with a computer that uses a decent amount of power that pays their own electricity bill and works full time, my computer is off at 2AM. Those settings seem a bit daft to be defaults.

 

Thank you for the suggestion and I hope this fixes it.
