Despite MS saying the default time is 2am mine will not run unless I'm actually sitting in front of the screen working on something. I've reset it to 5pm and most days it works but not today as I was away from the screen for an hour and nothing happened. Is it just me or is it a beta glitch?
When it runs it's fine and the only thing it has found is MSN trying to hijack my Google toolbar. Sorry Microsoft but I'm happy with Google.

You need to teach that you allow your settings to be set to google. As for the scheduler I have found it to be a bit buggy as well.

Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Scheduled Tasks/Microsoft Antispyware
Under the Task tab make sure that "run only if logged on" is unchecked.
I had the same problem and got rid of it that way after doing some navigation.
You can also go to Control Panel/Power Options to change settings for staying logged on.
