Unscheduled scans starting up?
« on: March 20, 2013, 08:21:35 PM »
Heya
It's only happened twice so far, but over the last week Avast has been trying to start up scans I didn't schedule or start myself. The first one was a full scan that I had not scheduled myself (but was scheduled that day, for some reason), the second was a quick scan that happened just this morning which was unscheduled, and I didn't start it myself.

What is this? has it happened to anyone else?

What I have is when I go to "Scan", Quick Scan starts running.
