Win 10 Home 64 bit, MBAM Premium (WSA on trust list, and Ransomware real-time disabled). Shutdown every evening, and normally restart 4-times before browsing…

 

I installed WSA late in the day, and somehow Auto Scan is scheduled for 7pm?

I start browsing... much earlier, and would like to know my system is clean (without having to do a manual scan)!

What time should I re-schedule my scan for?

BTW- MBAM auto-scheduled their scan for 2am, so it scans 5min after cold startup.

Hello @scottls59901 

 

Yes WSA will setup a scan time very close to the Install time but you can set it as you like here! I have all my boxes unchecked because I want it to scan right at 1PM and it does if my PC is on at the time.
