Avast Scheduled Scan Won't Work!
« on: January 23, 2013, 11:25:30 PM »
Hi, I have been using avast! 7 for a couple months now and the scans have worked properly until now. I set avast! to do a full system scan on Wednesday at 12:10 PM but when I look in the scan logs, it's not there. Please help, this is becoming very annoying.  >:(

Is your computer awake at that time?

No, it sleeps after 30 minutes of inactivity.

Oh... Seems that Windows is not allowing avast! to awake the computer and scan.

The solution did not work. I never had troubles with scheduled scan on AVG.  >:(

When you look at your scan logs, click on the downward arrow on the right side. You should be able to scroll down and maybe find the missing scan.

I only have two scans. I just re-installed not to long ago to attempt to fix the problem. Saying 12:10 PM for the time is OK, right? I don't need to switch it to something else?
