sometime,

Once you open the Program Files, go to Alwil Software and then just click on the Avast folder.  It is listed as ashquick.exe

If you click on any other folder, you will not see it.

Scheduling of scans is only in the Pro paid for version. In the home version you can use the task scheduler and ashquick.exe as you have already found. There are however, few options on how to deal with a virus should it encounter one.

When I click on ashquick.exe, a window opens and closes immediately, before I can read what it say.  It does not look as if it checks for viruses, since it all happens too fast.

Ofcourse it closes immediatly. You have not specified what to scan.

read here on how to schedule a scan with the home version:
