Title: How to set tasks to start scan - start update
Post by: shu-hi on November 29, 2008, 01:48:35 PM
I am using the free home edition and for the life of me, I can't find where I can set the day and time to start a scan - I have searched and searched but can't seem to find where.

Thanks  ???

The scheduling feature is only availble in avast! Pro

But there is an workaround for the avast home version, but I haven't tried it:
