Scheduled scans are a necessary part of ensuring the continuous health of your PC. On a regular basis, they thoroughly check your PC for viruses and other threats.
By default, McAfee performs a scheduled scan at 4:00 A.M. once a week, but you can modify the schedule to fit your needs. An option to use a minimal amount of your PC's processing power is enabled by default, but you can disable it to increase the speed of the scheduled scan. Another option allows you to conserve battery power if your PC is not plugged in at the time of a scheduled scan.
