Scheduling A/V Scans
« on: June 14, 2022, 03:18:24 PM »
Just a quick question.  I did a forum search but couldn't find anything recent on the topic and searching through the support pages didn't help.

Could you point me to the section for scheduling A/V scans? I want to disable the scheduled scan option and only run it manually.

(The setting is probably staring me in the face!!)

Running Avast Premium Security - 22.5.6015 (build 22.5.7263.730)

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Asyn.

I looked at that page earlier and didn't see anything specific but I looked closer and saw that the setting is under Custom Scans. Seemed to be easier to find in older versions.

To edit your custom scan settings, go to Protection ▸ Virus Scans ▸ Custom scans, then hover your cursor over the scan name and click … More (three dots) ▸ Settings.

Maybe the support page could be amended to clearly state how to adjust scan schedule settings?
