Windows 2000 server locked and NAV does not run

We have a Windows 2000 server.  It locks after 15 minutes with the screen saver.

When I log in the next day, it immediately starts the previously scheduled Norton Antivirus scan.  It does not perform this when the system is locked.

What have I missed?

Check the scheduled events inside of NAV. It might be setup to run a scheduled scan each time you login. When you unlock the screen saver you're not necessarily logging in. Also check your startup menu inside of programs to see if something isn't in there. There is also a place inside of NAV for scheduled startup scans. NAV wouldn't be acting this way unless someone told it to.

Hope this helps

NAV may also require that you log in as an Administrator to run properly.
It could also be that the Task scheduled is not set up with the correct permissions.
Is NAV using the Win2k scheduler or it's own separate scheduler ?


I hope this helps !

The events are scheduled for a specific time.  The update is running while locked but not the scan.

NAV is using its own scheduler, but I added the scan to the Win2k scheduler and will see what happens.

I will advise.

may be the scan is waiting for idling and the screen saver is eating resources?

The screen saver is a blank screen, and there are no resources running on the computer at 4:00 am.

ok, no idea if the NAV sheduler is working as a service.
starting a scan with the windows task sheduler should work

did it work?

No, it continues to run only when the station is unlocked.

I could not see the NAV scheduler running as a service.

I will try removing NAV and reinstalling it.  Perhaps it did not make an appropriate registry entry.

ìs this a current and server-aware version of NAV?

MarkhamAuthor Commented:
Yes it is both a current version and a Server version.

We just solved the problem with a version upgrade.  It had unpublished known issues with Term Server running.

I feel that franka had me look in the right direction.  It is the closest answer to the identified problem.

Thanks all who participated.
