As Artras suggested, you can use taskmanager. I am guessing you are using the Home version.

I do not remember the exact set-up, but, if you use the Search button (at the top of each page) and search for ... schedule scans ... you should find some posts about doing this.

I hope this helps you.    :)

shgoh is fully right... this is a Pro version feature.
On Home version, use task manager to schedule: ashQuick.exe file from avast folder. You cannot use parameters  :-\
In Pro version you can have both Windows and Command-line possibilities (ashCmd.exe)  8)

So...  :'(
the avast free version has a lot of features but this one is reserved to the pro (paid) version.
