AVG Scheduler

  Bass99 18:02 23 Jun 2003


I want to run AVG virus check on different times on different days. This I thought to do with Schedule Wizard. That is if I knew the file spec to start av test running.

Can anyone help please?

as far as i am aware you can only pick ONE time of the day for the daily scan.

you can however do a scan manualy anytime you want, Right click the taskbar icon, choose "run anti-virus", click on Tests then custom test, then choose the drive/ folder/ file you want to scan.

or just click the Run Complete Test button on the main screen to check your whole system.

Thank you Paperman27,

Using Windows ME with the Scheduled Task Wizard I have the option of setting scheduled tasks running, what I am hoping for is to set up a cople of tasks with different days and times to do the same task. The same as I can do with say Disc Defragmenter.

Slightly off topic, but I set up AVG to check for updates daily at 8:00 am. If none is available the updater flashes on screen for a few seconds before closing down. If a new update is available it downloads it in the background and applies the patch, then restarts AVG automatically. IMO if you have AVG resident shield running you only need to do a full test once a week, or if you suspect problems.

Perhaps someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I think any more than that is overkill.

Thank you Pesala,

I was looking to do it twice a week, though once a week should be adequate.

It is starting to look like I have to accept the AVG daily scheduler, or manualy do it once a week. Having a computer and doing jobs manualy does not sit well with me.

my avg is set to run daily at 7am, as i am on broadband i feel it is nescessary to do this. it might be overkill but you cant be too careful.

Having just gone broadband I shall accept the daily schedular. Boot up first thing in the morning and let it get on with it. Instead of my normal mid day boot up.
