    I have MSSE installed and scheduled to run each Saturday night at 21:00 hours (9PM). This week it ran Friday night and did not run at all Saturday. I did not initiate the scan, and the day/time is correct. Any ideas?

    I'm thinking it may have something to do with Windows Update / automatic updates and restarting required at some point. I got Windows updates that were not complete on purpose because of some requirements and then a restart was required to finish and the remaining updates were then downloaded and installed. When set to automatically update, it won't prompt for a restart until shutdown or two days later, whichever happens first.
