How to remove a 'scheduled scan'
« on: April 14, 2019, 02:12:04 PM »
Hey, I was wondering if someone could help me with removing this scan that is scheduled as it gives me no option to delete it.

If I can't remove it how can I edit it so it takes less time and doesn't affect anything I'm doing, as it takes ages and slows everything down

1. Download Avast Premier Antivirus: https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup_offline.exe
2. Follow instructions: https://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed Avast versions..!!)
3. Reinstall Avast with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.
