For whatever reason, I did not see a Security tab on the Properties screen of the Scheduled Task.

The scan failed to run because I had not password set.
Finally figured out that I needed to go into my Profile Accounts and set a password for the user account (admin).  When I did that and entered the password on the Schedulted Task Properties, the scan ran succesfully.
Maybe someone else has run into this situation.

At any rate,I certainly appreciate the scheduled task instructions 8)

Do you see them into any folder properties? I mean, using Windows Explorer?
If not, you should enable the 'enhanced' sharing properties of folders.
By default, XP use simple sharing.
Go Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Option > 2nd tab at the end... there is an option for sharing folders and files...

We had something similar before where the Security Tab wasn't present, we found that in XP your HDD has to be formatted with NTFS in order to have it, unlike mine FAT32 (where the security tab doesn't show).

So if Technical's suggestion doesn't resolve it, check the format of your HDD.

I don't see an option that even implies sharing.
There is one for showing files they don't want you to see and recommend you don't unclick that option.

@ DavidR
No, I have NTFS

It's the second, from bottom to top... Sorry, my sytem is not in English and then I can't translate to option for you.
Could be: "Use simple file sharing method (recommended)"  ::)

Are you using Win XP?
I looked and looked in my Windows XP, the missing manual under scheduled tasks and file sharing, etc.  What I find looks like the way to schedule a task involves the password scenario. No mention of security setting in the file options that I could find.  ???

Wow, that looks alot like my post from a while back

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=7129.0

Thanks for the credit...

If you are referring to the original post of this thread I would suggest you look at the posting dates. I posted these instructions back in April of 2004. You're post, which you linked to, is from September 2004, a full five months later. If anything, you should be giving me credit.

Hmmm, I just tried setting this up, and when I tried testing it, I got the Avast initializing window, and then it ends immediatly. If I run it from a CMD prompt, it executes fine. Is there a log somewhere that I can use to determine why it is ending quickly out of the scheduler?

Hi!
I found this topic Very interesting, BUT I cannot schedule a task
After entering the password in Windows schedule  Manager I press the "Apply " button.
Then I receive the following message:
Error
0x80070005.Access denied
You have not the right to execute the requested task

What does it mean? ???
Any  help please!! :)
Many thanks
Yannis

Are you using the Administrator account (or an account with Admin rights) to schedule this task?

Hi
Yes I have admin rights.
My system is Win XP home SP2, if it helps.
Thanks

Although this could not be enough, it helps.
For instance, by default, you don't have access to C:\System Volume Information folder, for instance.
The on-demmand schedule is, for sure, a Professional version feature and won't be able to 'replace' it at the same level of effectiveness and effort with the Home one.

Worked for me, too.  Piece o' cake.  Thanks for the easy to follow instructions, Jedisb.
