Have updated to 10.2.2214 on a paid version of Internet Security. Now when I go to scan for viruses option all I get is Boot Time Scan (which will run straight away if selected, not at Boot) - no option for Quick or Full Scan.

Anyone else have this issue ?

Thanks

Perform a clean installation of the latest avast version.
Updating from a previous version is known not always to work as it should.

- Uninstall through control panel
- Use the uninstall tool : https://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility
- Boot
- Run CCleaner (for files and registry)
- Reboot
- Install the latest version of avast
- Reboot
