On demand scan schedule not working anymore?


Recommended Posts

Hello:

 

This is an Windows XP SP3 fully patched install. Scans are all coming back with nothing found. No recent removal of any problems. This worked fine until about 10 days ago. I tried reintalling ESET. No change still does not fire. I tried restore points from XP, but did not restore anything? One other system restore said it failed because of no changes. I tried deleting scan setup and making a new one.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!! :)

I'm afraid it's not clear what the problem is. I understand that a scheduled scan runs but does not find any malware. If you suspect that your computer is infected, run a Smart scan.

If Scans are all coming back with nothing found that means that your system is Malware Free..>> THIS is a good thing..  ESET will not find threats and every single scan unless you are constantly doing to the gutter of the internet and downloading bad stuff.

The problem is the scheduled scan does not start, even when I tell it to scan next available chance. The only way to scan is manually. This function worked fine for years. Only recently developed the problem. Unit appears to be working OK otherwise. My concern is a virus Etc somehow turned off the automatic scan. I should have repeated my issue in first line of previous post. My issue is listed in the topic of my post. The rest of my first post our the things I have already tried to fix the issue. I will check Monday morning if it is logging other scheduled events for automatic updates.

Hi TomFace:

 

I have been trying different things. Most recent was to put on some .net windows updates. On bootup my one scheduled scan that should start if over 24 hours did start. :)  I will check if other scans also work and continue to work. I will post back if I still beleive it was the .net windows updates stuff.

ESET scheduled scan have been unreliable for a long time. If you restart the computer you will find it runs the scheduled scan. I gave up trying to fix it. hxxp://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=313679

Ok, Taking off a recommended update KB2492386 seems to have fixed this on my ASUS motherboard. Until this recent problem scans have always worked very good for me. But, I am still on Windows XP here on a very small Novell network. Microsoft=$$ does not care that I need to stay with this to run a old Database program called dataease. The cost to migrate for a small company is just to costly!

Still have issues. So, I turned off screen saver, even though I changed power setting to always on. It now worked flawless for two weeks. Does not make sense to me, but it seems to have worked.
