Re: avg question

If you don't touch it, it will automatically scan each morning beginning at 
8 A.M., and then update itself with its latest definition files at about 
9:48 A.If you're using the computer when these procedures are happening, 
especially the virus scan, you should be aware of it; the program deisplays 
a mission completed message at the end of its scanning, and also announces 
when it's beginning its update and when it's done with that, which only 
takes a minute or less.
The only reason you'd want to learn how to change this is if you wanted 
deliberately to change the schedule.  Not just to turn it on.  You don't 
have to do anything just to set the program in motion.  If that's all you're 
worrying about, don't worry.  It should already be doing what it needs to 
do, according to its default scheduling .

One important note:  If you don't have broadband service (DSL or cable or a 
T1 connection), then you must be sure you're online before the time the 
update is set for, otherwise it can't be done automatically, and you'll have 
to go into the control center and do it manually from there.

Hope this helps.

Subject: avg question


Hi List:



I am using the AVG free antivirus software and am trying to set up the
scheduler to scan my computer.  I think someone asked this already so if
this is a repeat question please forgive me.  I went into the scheduler and
scheduled the part where it downloads the actual virus definitions but can
not seem to find where you actually schedule it to scan your computer for
viruses?  What am I doing wrong?



Regards, Liz Wade
