Question

GMS appears to continue to run timed events even though they were either previously removed or the software key associated with these events has expired.

How can I prevent these from running in the future?

Answer

GMS provides an interface to control timed events under the System > Timed Events page of the administration interface.

Simply highlight the event you wish to remove and lick on the Delete button. (In older versions of GMS click on the D to the right of the event in question.)

For example, to delete the timed event that fetches new virus definition files you would delete the Virus Updates timed event.

Note: You should only delete events you are sure are no longer used by GMS. If you do accidentally delete a system event it can be recreated by visiting the appropriate page of the administration interface.
