Idle Full System Scan Doesn't Resume
An idle full scan was underway today when I had to briefly open an MS-Word document to check something, so the scan stopped. Then I left the computer and did not return for two hours. When I returned, the log did show -- as expected -- that scan was canceled when I looked at the Word document. However, the scan did not resume.
It seems like I've been having this issue for 3-4 weeks now. Namely, when an idle full scan is interrupted it doesn't resume as it used to. I've even waited 3-4 days for resumption, but it doesn't retry until it's time for the next weekly idle full scan.
Any thoughts or suggestions? (For reasons I won't go into here, I prefer not to upgrade to 2012 right now.) Thanks.
