Minimize CPU utilization

How can I minimize the CPU utilization of the F-Secure in the task manager on server because sometimes it reaches 100% when it timed on at designated scheduled task?

    In F-Secure Policy Manager Console, advanced view mode:


    Settings / F-Secure / F-Secure Anti-virus 9.xx / Settings / Settings for manual scanning / Scanning options / Priority = Normal or Background

    The Background setting will allow other applications to use necessary CPU when a schedule scan is in place.

    Effectively decreasing F-secure usage of CPU in favor of other applications running at the same time.


    However note that high CPU usage will happen when a schedule task is performed.
