A self-managed ("unmanaged") Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 12.1 client is running a scan at the same time every day, even when there are no scans listed under "Scan For Threats".
The default scheduled scans have been deleted from the SEP client, but there are still entries for these scans in the Windows registry. These registry listings cause these scans to run.
There are several possible solutions.
Uninstalling and reinstalling the SEP client will almost always solve the issue.
In some instances, uninstalling and reinstalling the SEP client will not solve the issue and the scheduled scan entries can remain in the registry causing the scans to still run.
These registry entries will need to be removed manually.
