Twice now this has happened, I hear my computer making a noise like its scanning so I check windows defender (because I am curious) and it starts up!
Its made to run at ten at night but these two times were not near that time.
Any reason as to why this happens?
It does not happen everytime I click WD just these two times, Also when it is a schedueled scan it take well over 2 1/2 hours to complete, but if I click scan now it take 50-55 seconds to complete! :thumbsup:

EDIT

I just checked WD and it says that the last time it scanned was 7/8/09 at 23.55 (full system scan)
Yet this is not the time it started the last scan, that was 8/8/09 at 00.56.

I shut down my computer before it had finished scanning (it had scanned for about 30+ mins) but it still should have had that scan as being the last one and not the one before it.

Anyone any ideas?

I set the time for it to scan now at 13.00 and I waited till it was 13.05 then looked at it and it immediately started up! it should have been running for 5 minutes but it did not start till I looked at it 5 minutes after its start time...
