Selecting the run mode for the scan task

If it is impossible to run the scan task for any reason (for example, the computer is off at that time), you can configure the skipped task to be run automatically as soon as this becomes possible.

You can postpone the scan task start after application startup if the scan task start time matches the Kaspersky Endpoint Security startup time. The scan task can only be run after the specified time interval elapses after the startup of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.

To select the scan task run mode:

  1. In the main application window, click the Tasks button.
  2. In the opened window, select the scan task and click the icon_settings button.
  3. Click the Scan schedule button.
  4. In the opened window, configure the scan task run schedule.
  5. Depending on the selected frequency, configure advanced settings that specify the task run schedule.
    1. Select the Run scheduled scan on the next day if computer is turned off if you want Kaspersky Endpoint Security to run missed scan tasks at the first opportunity.

      If Every minute, Every hour, After application startup or After every update item is selected in the Run scan drop-down list, the Run scheduled scan on the next day if computer is turned off check box is unavailable.

    2. If you want Kaspersky Endpoint Security to suspend a task when computer resources are limited, select the Run only when the computer is idle check box. Kaspersky Endpoint Security starts the scan task if the computer is locked or if the screen saver is on.

      This schedule option helps to conserve computer resources.

  6. Save your changes.
