Strange... It should generate a log on each time the screensaver is loaded and finish when it is closed.
Did you change any of the default settings of the screensaver scanning?

It look like it could be looping

In Windows go into Screen Saver------Settings and make sure that the "Loop Scanning" is not checked.

But, why loop scanning would be related to 30 seconds logs? ???

ok i unchecked loop scanning.

btw- its my dad pc, so full scan takes 4:34 minutes so his computer is actually pretty empty.
update: 1 log, after a minute the screensaver says "scan finished" xD
problem solved- not enough data on the computer!

You can set what areas (folders) should be scanned...
