Scheduling time to run scan
« on: August 24, 2004, 04:36:18 AM »
 :) Maybe it is me, but I cannot locate anywhere to schedule the Avast virust protection to run.  For example:  I want it to run daily at 6:00pm.  Is there a way to do this?

It's a Professional version feature...
In Home (free) version you can only schedule the boot time scanning.

Wellcome to forums.  ;)

Thank you.  Well, I guess that explains why I cannot schedule the scan.  I've spent hours trying to figure it out.  :'(

Feel a wee bit dumb right now.  Thanks again.

With the home version you can use tasksheduler to create a task ;)

You can add a link to ashQuick.exe but it's not configurable (does not have parameters).
You can use the Screen saver module (scanning while the screen saver is active).
You can 'create' a Windows macro but it will need third party applications...
I hope you get it won't be easy at Home version as this feature is a Pro one...  :-\
