online_scanner glitch pending restart??
I have F-Secure Total, and slowly integrating it into the few computers I use from home. So far, I find F-Secure products excellent! I want to use Online Scanner on a win10 computer that is using a different anti-virus until its license expires, but I'm having issues. Win10 21H2, in SUA and running onlinescanner.exe from Run as Administrator. Scanner opens, but very quickly I get a popup notice that
"pending scan with restart request was found. please restart your computer to continue"
I cannot tell if online scanner has quickly run, and it is requesting the reboot, or if it fails to run because it sees some issue related to the popup, related to online scanner, ie, forcing a reboot to complete its scan, or to some other win10 issue. Windows reports that all windows updates are current. I am not aware of any app or update requiring a pending reboot. When I do reboot, online scanner does not pickup where it left off in its scanning process. The popup comes within a few seconds of starting the online scanner, so I don't get a chance to see what else, if anything, the online scanner is doing. Preliminary research indicates that this could be a windows registry issue that can be hard to track down, and I do not like making changes to registry without very specific instructions. Also if the reboot is not part of online scan, why would F-Secure online scanner care whether some other app or update failed in the past? Please advise.
