Specify the time of day to run a scheduled full scan to complete remediation

This policy setting allows you to specify the time of day at which to perform a scheduled full scan in order to complete remediation. The time value is represented as the number of minutes past midnight (00:00). For example, 120 (0x78) is equivalent to 02:00 AM. The schedule is based on local time on the computer where the scan is executing.

If you enable this setting, a scheduled full scan to complete remediation will run at the time of day specified.

If you disable or do not configure this setting, a scheduled full scan to complete remediation will run at a default time.

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 or Windows RT
