New User of Avast Home, couple ?'s
« on: May 05, 2004, 07:36:53 AM »
I've looked around, the answers are  probably right in front of my face and I can't see them. :-[

I read a thread regarding timing of scans. It appears that with Pro you can set it to scan at a certain time, but with Home you cannnot. Is that correct?

What about updates? Can one set Home to look for updates every X number of days? If one can't, what is the default? I can't find it. I don't really like having an AV program and not knowing when it's updating. :(

Yes, the Pro version includes the scheduler - you can "program" given task to be run at given date/time. In the Home version, it is possible to simulate this feature to some extent using the Windows Scheduler - there was some info on this forum.

For the updates, I would suggest to check the FAQ page - look for the text How does the update service work.

Thank you for the reply. I found out the update answer right after I postedy question. :-[

It says it checks every 4 hours.
