I'm sorry if I'm not in the right topic area. I am having a problem that is driving me crazy. In Norton Antivirus (norton internet security 2004) I scheduled a virus scan when I installed the software. This does not show up in the schedule. However, every friday evening it scans as scheduled. I cannot figure out for the life of me how to delete this schedule or at least change it.

Hmm. That would mean waiting a week to see if that actually worked.

You woudn't by any chance have Norton Systemworks installed on your system as well do you because "One Button Checkup"  is scheduled to run its full set of scans on Fridays at 5:30 P.M.  Norton Antivirus is probably scheduled for the sametime.

I do have Norton Stem Works. I have also found out how to delete the scheduled scan. Windows task scheduler. Go figure! I thought it was within Norton and could only be changed there.
 Thanks for all the replies.
