I have had NIS 2005 installed for awhile with a nighly scheduled scan at 3AM on my laptop. The last month it will not do the scheduled scan anymore and I have tried to delete and recreate another scheduled scan, but still no luck. What is the problem all the sudden with NIS not doing the scheduled scan it is scheduled to do? I am running Win XP Pro on a Toshiba Laptop.

Greetings, rattleme !

Here is a trouble shooter when scheduled virus scan does not work
http://service1.symantec.com/Support/nav.nsf/docid/2001101116104606?OpenDocument&ExpandSection=1%2C3

1. Look carefully through the first solution: Remove and reschedule a virus scan. I know you said you did that. But verify that you did it correctly.

If no joy, follow the steps for the other 2 suggestions:
2. Set the Windows 2000 or XP user account password
3. Verify that the Windows Task Scheduler is working correctly

Best wishes!

Hi
What I would do is to carry out a system restore, back to a point where it was working

Your antivirus scanner makes use of the Windows Tasks Scheduler, check that the Task Scheduler service is running in your services list and is set to 'Automatic'
Run 'services.msc' to view your running services.

Hope this helps
