How does it run a scan when my computer is off?
« on: 17/05/2008 03:38:20 »
Well this image below shows that it running scans at 1 in the morning, and well um about that my computer is off. How is it doing it? It works great I never have to defrag my computer anymore or go in and run the virus scan myself, but I don't see how it works when the computer is off. I checked my defrag by pressing analze and its just about as good as it will ever get. And we havne't had a virus problem since like a year and a half ago when we hadda reinstall everything. So how does it run when the computer if off?

Thats just the time it wants to do the scan if the machine was on. Try unplugging the pc and i bet you get the same message.

 Trust me no power no scando
