Avast 4.8 wont start scanning automatically
« on: May 16, 2009, 04:40:29 AM »
I have set my Avast 4.8 to scan every Friday night at 7.30PM. It goes through the memory test and then brings up  the Avast screen. Nothing happens unless I start it myself . I would like it to scan automatically at 7.30 PM every Friday without me having to be there.
Any suggestions or solutions to my problem?
