avast, why is scheduled scan Skipped?
« on: April 27, 2015, 07:21:26 PM »
why is scheduled scan Skipped? from this picture u see when it was running & from TaskBar u see the time (more like date not time) it skipped, it should run awry week this day, but this week it skipped

sleep mode is turned off, only thing that happens is Monitor shuts down from PC after 15min, that kind of a screen save mode

its not awry day, once a week, awry week this day, i don't remember what day it is today in English, i go afk awry time 18:30 & i return 20:00 & it does scan awry time,  but 1 time it skips, i have the issue sins upgraded to avast 2015 free version, example its set to awry Monday, at first i had a second issue, it was delayed, sometimes it scanned 19:48 even, that seems to have been fixed, but skipping issue still exists, its not huge issue, but still its a issue

did that, but i guess i will see within 3 month did it fix it or not

after repair & restart i opened avast & schedule was same, it did not reset it, default was schedule turned off, so i doubt it had any effect. but only future can tel

A repair fixes the install and shouldn't affect your personal settings.

interesting thing, i got Win update (i have it sins morning 10am something 29.04.2015, new its next day 1:32am & i just installed update 1:10am) & after restart, when i open TaskManager i don't see NGservice nor VirtualBox running, is TaskManager bugged? i heard VirtualBox is critical process (important), event log does not show issue with avast & no error report neither, what does it mean? that it works & its not showing in Task Manager?

i meant avast virtualbox interface ofc
