Under Scheduler:

This is the area you can schedule a complete system scan (as outlined below) It can only
be configured for once every 24hours the hour being set as the time the program was started
and every 24 hours following.

The Information tab provides you with information on your program last update date as well
as program and virus pattern number.

Go back to the Resident shield tab and select "Save parameters as new default" You must
select this when making changes so the changes are saved for future use. If not selected
your changes are temporary for this session only.
