What is the difference between a scheduled and a manual scan?

A manual scan is targeted at a single computer. A scheduled scan is targeted at all clients within the group that have been selected for scanning in the Console. Unlike scheduled scanning, manual scanning does not allow you to change the scanning parameters before you run the scan; the current selected settings in the "Scheduled Scanning Options" panel are used. If you do not want to use the default settings, we recommend using a scheduled scan rather than the "Scan" icon.

To perform a manual scan:

* Select an individual client from the list of client computers.
* Click the "Scan" icon or the F11 key.

To perform a scheduled scan:

* Select the scanning options you would like to use.
* Select the days of the week and the time of the day when you would like to run the scan.
