Thank you very much for your replies

    I still have not found the button to change smart scan "Monthly" to none.
    "Some-timers"


When you run the Smart Scan, from memory at the end of it there is a field indication to run this scan monthly, uncheck that box. "
I have unchecked the box many times but each time I scan it is checked again.
Ahh Don't run it !

Image brackets should also work if used properly.





Here's what that will look like on the forum once posted.


Thank you that is what I thought, needs to be uploaded to a server first.

You're welcome

Check the Avast Menu > Settings and I think the paid users have a Privacy section or Personal Privacy within the General section.

I have unchecked the box many times but each time I scan it is checked again.

I have only ever done this once and the Smart Scan has never run since.  I don't know of any other option to kill it.

You could try the Avast geek:area in the Menu > Settings, click on the search icon and type geek:area

   Hi- would it be possible to permanently disable the monthly automatically scheduled Smart Scan?  I see a check box with the check ticked every time Smart Scan is finished.  I have to manually uncheck it after the scan finishes every time . 
  Thank you

Please see my post right above this one.
