I think you have to use military time for scheduling. I may be wrong about that, but if you want to schedule a scan for 12:10 p.m. try scheduling it for 24:10.

Isn't that somewhere at 12:00 AM? 12:10 has always worked for me.

In military time, 12:10 is 10 minutes after noon.  10 minutes after midnight would be 00:10 as the day starts within the second after midnight (24:00).  24:10 doesn't exist at all.

Avast just started a scan now. It should of started it at 12:10 PM.

Verify that your system time is correct.

By default, your system time will show in the System Tray at the lower right of the windows screen.  If you click on it, you will get a popup with options to change date and time settings.  No need to change it if system date and time are correct for your location.  In order to change those settings, you must have administrative privileges.

Just got avast! 8.0.1483 and was rather disappointed. I did a clean install but scheduled scan STILL does not work.  >:(
