Scan tasks custom tasks don't work

edited September 2017 in General


In Total security 2018 custom scans are not working, I setup a scan just to scan a specific folder on the C drive on system startup (Email folder) and I set to aggressive.

When I try and run this scan from manage scan tasks it starts scanning all of drive C even though it's not checked under scan targets, also if I edit the scan it is always reset to normal scan from the aggressive setting.


  • Bump, Anyone?

  • I've found that their whole scan function is a hot mess.  Custom scans that I set up to just scan a particular drive were still scanning all drives.  I tried deleting those custom scans but they still keep running.  Now I have 2 or 3 scans running at the same time and there doesn't seem to be any way to stop or cancel them.
