AVG free version 2011

  User-01DB3158-C279-4074-97E6FF8FBCFBF42C 20:48 29 Oct 2010

Have just needed to buy a new laptop, & have downloaded the current free version of AVG (2011). The interface is very different to the version I was running on my old computer. What I can't find is how to initiate a scan of the hard drive - any guidance on how to do it would be most appreciated. Thanks...

Open User interface,click on computer scanner,where it says Scan for Threats,click on
Scan specific files or folders,Tick the device you want to scan and press scan now.

Hmm,.. there is no "computer scanner" option on the user interface, only "AVG LinkScanner" which from the write up appear to look at the websites you are viewing rather than stuff on your hard discs - still confused :(

The scanner option is on the menu to the left hand side.
