    Yes. Been looking for this since the betas. Thought it would be added to the final release.
    Now how about scheduling a daily scan?
    Can't seem to figure out the scheduler feature.

    It runs real time in the back ground, what is the benefit of having a daily scan?

    Do you regularly have problems? My AV hasn't detected anything in years.
