I've noticed that since I started using Omni instead of "standard," when I right-click and "scan selected items," it doesn't always work.  Regardless of what this new system is supposed to do to prevent infected files from getting on the system in the first place, I scan anyway.  Always have.  Probably always will.  But now it takes several attempts to get it to work.

Does it work if you first open the Omni User Interface ??? There was a bug that has already been addressed. Maybe the Omni product hasn't been updated ???

@steele42 - As @bob3160 mentioned, the issue should be solved now. Please update the app and restart your device. Thank you
