I've scheduled scan daily at 1PM on SAV 10.2.,but I do see another scan running at 11PM which was not configured by me.

How do I delete this unwanted scan scheduled at 11PM? It would be great if you tell me registry value,as I do not see any option to delete from Symantec antivirus interface.

Many Thnaks!!

    check you groups and make you that the scans are to that group alone.

    the scans will only run if they are in the policy (or they are set as unmnaged machine)

    yes this is Unmanaged client. How do I delete unwanted scan from registry? As I'm view/delete from Symantec antivirus interface. It simply appears in scan history.

    Thank you
