Scheduling a daily scan
« on: December 03, 2004, 03:47:28 PM »
How do I schedule a daily scan of my hard disk?  In other anti-virus programs it is easy to do.  How do I do that with the Home edition of AVAST?
Thanks

Avast home doesn't offer that option. You need Avast pro for it. (Hé there has to be a difference between free and paid ;) )

But there is a workaround with taskschedular. Another user on this board has expalined how/what to do. Use the search function here to find it.

edit: found the thread that explains it.
