2. Click on 'Repair'.
3. Follow instructions.
4. Reboot.

Just to be clear, here is what my Virus Scan menu looks like. The Settings option does not have any controls for setting/changing the scheduled scan time and the clock icon only displays the "Run your scan daily at 3:00" text and is not clickable.

BTW - I tried doing a repair and several re-boots with no change to this behavior.

That's not what the Help says...
What does it say? Where? Online help? Help with the latest version or general help?

However, you're right, (I just tried it) I don't understand why the settings don't allow you to do a complete scheduled scan without having to go through a custom scan where you have to redo everything.

Hopefully avast can fix this and they didn't voluntarily delete it as they deleted the fast scan.

After updating to this new version (Avast! Free), I can no longer find any controls to set the scheduled scan date/time for a full scan. The Settings link under the Full Virus Scan (from Protection->Virus Scans) contains nothing about scheduling. There is also a clock icon under the Full Virus Scan panel, but it only shows when the scan will run - no controls for setting/changing it. This clock icon is not clickable - the scheduled scan time only appears in a pop-up which is also not clickable.

In previous versions, the scheduling controls were easily found and intuitive. Have these controls been hidden somewhere else or are they simply missing in this release? I think the scheduling settings have been missed and should have been part of the Settings menu tree.
Hi, you can use the old settings in troubleshooting (for now).

I tried using the old settings option, but there are no controls for scheduling scans there either. I stand by my original assessment that this is a mistake in 19.1.2360 - and from my perspective, a serious mistake. The scheduled scan feature has been around in every version of Avast! Free I've used over the past 10+ years except this one.


No we cant troubleshooting and the 'old settings' option.

There is no option anywhere in this new version to modify existing scheduled scans, or to set up new scheduled scans. How did this major flaw slip past the testing team at avast???? How long will it take them to fix it. Will they even fixed it!

I didn't pay good money to Avast just to have them release such a flawed update, it seems like they've been taking lessons from Microsoft that it's OK to release flawed software for users to find the bugs.

Just installed this and Input Director, the application I use to control my secondary computer using the same mouse and keyboard, no longer functions without completely disabling Avast.

Input Director uses my private wifi connection to allow this kind of connection between my two systems.

^^^ This is their site. If you could please analyze this issue, and help create a method where software which leverages the same resources can be selectively "Allowed"

not quite
As mentioned by Asyn (# 41), it is possible to configure new scheduled scans ... by setting up a custom scan.There is clock option.

One or two more reboot(s) would be needed. I had the same issue with beta which was resolved with reboot(s).

As a result of Avast 19.1 update Outlook 2010 Avast plugin does not work anymore.  :(
I guess it will take days to fix it.... as during December 2017 (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=212301.0)
Where can I download previous Avast setup offline version (18.x stable version) ?

The new version wrecked my test pc. The system partition got corrupted. I have a multi boot test PC and first I tried the new update of Avast on a Win8.1-32 OS. At reboot Windows says cannot load user profile. It booted with a blank desktop. At next reboots the Boot menu or the manufacturers Start Logo was not shown anymore. Just a black screen.
Tried repairing Start up with Win 8.1 and Win10 installation disk/USB. They couldn't repair. A fresh Installation of Win10 wouldn't reboot either.

The only solution I found, happily, restoring the System partition from an old backup. But the menu choices didn't work: No OS was bootable.
Then I installed a fresh Win10 on an available partition, and that did work this time. Next I added all OS's of the multi boot PC to the boot menu and now they all work again. I don't dare to update Avast again for the first months....

AND why is the current year 2018 in the captcha?
