Hello, I need some help.
I have Microsoft forefront on my network workstations as my antivirus. Two of my workstation are continuously being scanned causing the cpu usage to spike which causes decrease in the workstations' performance. My other workstations run a quick scan once a day early in the morning and a full scan once a week. But 2 of these stations are always non stop in scan mode. Any idea what is causing this and how to fix it. No infections are ever found. What can I look for to fix this.
-thank you-

I amy even want to test if scan per file will stop - rightfully it should just to make sure the engine is alright. I suspecting the scehduler though...we can also stop all scan and try the commandline approach to see if this loop exist still.  There is means to schedule thru commandline too.

In particular, usage of MpCmdRun.exe -Trace indicates that it traces all levels and all groups. There is log file generated which can help us to see where or hints of hanging... ... probably event log has error hints too

i was thinking if it is catch up scan initially but seems its scan was never been stopped - meaning the machine is shut down before or "missed" the scheduled scan etc.

I was looking at sort of file scanned that be causing loop, maybe
