avast screensaver virus scan?

  Old Town Steve 10:17 26 May 2006

I've just managed to delete Norton and install Avast, i've read on here somewhere that you can set it up to scan when your screensaver comes on. Sorry can't now find that post, so can anyone tell me how to set Avast to do this?

P.S. On first scan 3 Trojans found all of wich Norton hadn't found.

P.P.S Avast recommended and did move Trojans to chest. Is this sufficaint?

To access the screensaver scan, open display properties via the control panel, select the screensaver tab, then chose "avast! antivirus" from the screensaver dropdown option list. You can then tweak the avast! scan settings via the"settings" button.
The Virus chest is usually safe, but I rarely leave anything in it for long, just delete it when you want.
