schedule a full system scan
« on: April 30, 2009, 02:31:29 AM »
Is it possible to schedule a full system scan with avast home?

I had been using AVG which did this, but I got rid of AVG when it went to the 8.5 version, the 7.5 was superior except for rootkit scanning.

BTW, I did get AVG COMPLETELY off my system.

Thanks

These automated options are only available in the Pro version. This is a limitation of the Home (free) version that it has interactive input requirement, there have to be differences in the Home/Pro version and this is one of them, the programmers have to eat ;D
