Random Full System Scan


This morning I booted up my Win10 machine and walked away, when I came back it there was the “Your system is clean” screen. I did not start a scan nor do I have any scheduled scans setup. It had however only scanned about 5000 files and the log indicated that the scan had been cancelled by the user.

I did not start that scan nor stop the scan.

Any idea why a scan just started then stopped all by itself?

  • Hello @Shlagg,

    Are you the owner of the subscription? I'm asking because the scan command can also be deployed remotely from Central to a PC protected by that subscription / license.
