Change scan settings for Avast One
« on: August 15, 2021, 12:08:10 AM »
I'm still trying to get used to the new UI of Avast One. In the old UI you could change the settings for each scan type as shown here. https://support.avast.com/en-au/article/Antivirus-scan-settings/

You can customize the scanning behaver for Full, Targeted and Explorer.

For Avast One only File Shield can be changed like this


Is there anyway to do this in Avast One?

There are only very limited settings in this version.
What you are looking for isn't within the settings available

How are you supposed to change the scanning behaver?
Is there a way to go back to Avast antivirus?
Are the old settings transferred to Avast One?

Going back means a full uninstall
Settings aren't transferred

So what about the "per scan" settings? are they static or do they all follow what the same thing as the file shield?
