Virus scan

My Trend use to do a nightly scan.  Since Support reinstalled it yesterday, that scan didn't happen.  The schedule only allows certain days and not nightly.  I am confused.

Hi @barbiehines!

Is this happening right after you open your computer? If yes, that is normal.

Another possibility is the Trend Micro Security real-time scan. It scans the activities or running processes of the computer in real-time. For example, if at that point you're browsing the internet it will check the browser's processes and will run a scan if needed.

Here are the Scan Types in Trend Micro Security for Windows.

Can I get a screenshot of the nightly scan? It would help us paint the picture. Thanks.
