Is there a way to schedule scans to run on a weekly basis without my having to kick off the scan? I really like the program so far and would like to be able to automate the scan portion. I did set up a scheduled task in Win XP Pro, but I don't think it'll kick off the scan. Any help would be appreciated.

Oh and thank you very much to the folks who put this together.

It appears that the newest versions of PSI automatically scan every 7 days. However, I wish to change the scan day so it never occurs on a weekend when heavy processing is required on my machine. Can the scheduled time/day be modified?

As a "manual" work around :

Run the full scan at your time of choosing - this is recorded* in the "scan" tab & the next auto full scan is reset for exactly seven days later .

(* "Last and next full system scan " module )

Thank you for the info. I had suspected a timer reset when a manual scan was launched but was curious about my being able to manually change it to a different time. Your info certainly helped. Thanks!
