I cannot scan, when I finish with the computer I usually do  a quick scan, set it to shut down once finished, but I get a message saying.  Cannot scan, scan in progress, or waiting for update, but I am upto date. This problem happens during the day or a night, and I cannot see it scanning. Have checked/changed setting no luck.

Hi mbaas1,

I would like to know if every time you do a scan, you can see a message below that says "Shut down the computer when the scan is done". The box beside it might be 'ticked' or 'checked' that is why your computer shuts down after scanning. It would be best to try doing a manual scan again to verify this. Thank you.

Feel free to reply to this thread if the issue still persists, so we can assist you further

Thank you and good day!
