What Ralph said. The scheduler is nowhere to be found. I just spent a frustrating 45 minutes trying to find the scheduler and came across these out-dated instructions. All I want to do is change the time the scanner is run, but the only option is to start from scratch with a new one. I don't want to add a new scan, I just want to change the time on the one I have. I'll have to look for a better, more user-friendly product when my license runs out.
