OK, the netbook has been powered up for a couple of minutes, and hovering over the ESET icon in the systray shows there is a "startup scan in progress". The last time this happened this morning, I stopped it after 10 or 15 minutes, but I'll let it do its thing now and see how long it lasts.
Edited to add:
OK, now I feel silly. The startup scan did complete in a very short time. When I opened up the user interface, I clicked on Smart Scan to see the progress of the scan, and my doing that started a full scan.
I guess I'll leave the startup file check option in the scheduled tasks, since it doesn't seem to be an issue.
Now ESET informs me I need some Windows updates, so I'll get that done.
