You can set the program and the virus database updates to manual, automatic or ask mode...

So this is the only options to "schedule" updates ???  Is there no way to set update for a specific day ???  Every time I turn my PC on Avast updates.  I am not like most users who might just leave their PC running and it has gotten very annoying when I have had to get on more than twice in the same day.  Dont get me wrong, I love Avast and think its they shizzz, been pirate since pirate wasn't even cool!!!  Know what I mean 8)

Yes, on the Professional version there are these options...

it has gotten very annoying when I have had to get on more than twice in the same day.
Do you mean it's annoying that avast updates itself more than once per day?
Just increase the auto-update time on Update (Basic) > Details tab of settings...

I need help with avast also.
I have just gone to DSL. Everyone who sends me mail with a yahoo address Avast says it has a potential virus detected.
you can tell it to continue and if it has a file attached it will delete it.
Ive even sent mail to my dsl address from a yahoo I created and it says detects virus...

Did you change the Heuristic settings of Internet Mail provider and/or Outlook plugin?
Which program are you using to send/receive email?

avast will tell you what is suspicious (I don't think it is saying it is a virus) about the email and it sounds like iFrame tag.

Check the avast! Log Viewer (right click the avast icon), Warning section, this contains information on all avast detections.
