AVG automatci scans/updates.

Following some good advice from this forum I have installed AVG free.

However I cannot seem to find out if it does an automatic scan or updates it's files automatically.

I have looked in the scheduler where it says "update plan in basic mode". Is this to update the files or run a scan?

And if so what if your computer is off at that particular time?

Thanks for reading.

AVG does do updates and scans but you have to put in a time for both if you go intoupdate plan in basic mode clock on them and click edit schedule you can set the times there is a box you can tick so that if you are not online at the time it will update and run a scan as soon as you go online leo

Cheers leo,

Does it update and scan at the same time?

The last AV I had it was obvious it was scanning as it slowed everything up and you could hear the machine whiring away in the background.
