My computer is running really slow. Scan32.exe seems to chew up a lot of my CPU. I know it's a virus scan and has to run but is there any way that I can schedule it to run outside of my work time?

What version of McAfee VirusScan is installed?

If this is a work computer, it sounds to me like an issue for the IT personnel at your worksite.

Also, scan32.exe is not necessarily part of an AV package, http://www.file.net/process/scan32.exe.html

My version is 3.6.0.603
Also this scan32.exe file appears twice whenever it appears in Task Manager
Not sure why it would be there twice

If you are sure it's a legitimate process...why not shut down both and reboot?

Any process shut down via Task Manager restarts at boot.
