    Hello ,
    Might someone be able to tell me
    if you have Avast 5.0 free , does it allow
    scheduled tasks .
    I've had NO luck in trying to get
    any info from them and I've tried google
    with no success .
    xp pro
    i.e 7
    oe 6
    The error is : " ox80070005 - access denied !
    Try using the task page browse button to
    locate the application " .
    I've tried this but I see no mention of
    Avast .
    TIA ,
    D.

    I can't tell what you're trying to communicate wrt the error message,
    but Avast 5 (free) does accommodate scheduled scanning. Open Avast and
    click on "Settings" under the type of scan you want done. You may need
    to click on "More Details" to see the "Settings" button. Under
    "Settings" there's a "Scheduling" button.

    things I missed from AVG was the ability to schedule a full scan. After
    searching through the forums here I found out that this feature is only
    available in the Pro version of avast!. However, I did come across several
    people asking about this feature in these forums as well as a few hints on
    how to go about it. I decided to give it a whirl. I figured out how to
    schedule a scan using the avast! shell extension program, ashQuick.exe (the
    program that kicks in the scanner when you right-click on a file and choose
    "Scan" from the popup menu), and the Windows Task Scheduler. I thought I'd
    share this trick with others. Here's how to do it:
    (NOTE: These instructions are for Windows XP and assume Windows is set up to
    use "single click" to open items. I would assume the steps would be similar
    for other versions of Windows.)

    a.. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks

    b.. Click (or double-click) on Add Scheduled Task

    c.. In the wizard that appears click Next - a list of programs will appear

    d.. Click Browse and navigate to C:/Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4
    (or whatever folder in which you installed avast!)

    e.. Click (or double-click) on the file ashQuick.exe

    f.. On the next screen give the task a name of your choice and choose how
    often you want it to run and click on Next

    g.. On the next screen choose the appropriate scheduling options and click
    on Next

    h.. On the next screen enter the user name and password for the Windows
    user you want the task to run as, then click on Next

    i.. On the next screen check the box for the option "Open advanced
    properties for this task when I click Finish", and then click Finish

    j.. On the next screen, in the "Run" field you will see the path for the
    ashQuick.exe program. After the closing quote enter a space and type in the
    path(s) that you want scanned. Multiple paths must be separated by a space
    and any paths that include a space in the path name must be in quotes. Here
    are a couple of examples:
    "C:/Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashQuick.exe" C: E: - this will scan
    the entire contents of the C: and E: drives
    "C:/Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashQuick.exe" "C:program Files"
    E:Downloads - this will scan the contents of the Program Files folder on the
    C: drive and the Downloads folder on the E: drive, including all subfolders
    (Note the first path is in quotes due to the space in the folder name
    "Program Files")

    a.. Click OK

    b.. In the Scheduled Tasks window, from the menu, click on Advanced and
    choose "Start Using Task Scheduler"

    c.. To test your newly created task, from the Scheduled Tasks window,
    right-click on the task's icon and choose "Run" from the popup menu. If the
    scan doesn't begin correctly you'll get an error message. The problem is
    most likely in the scan path (missing quotes or something like that.)
    d.. Close the Scheduled Tasks window

    Keep in mind that this is just a "quick scan" and I'm not sure with what
    sort of depth that ashQuick.exe scans, but it beats nothing at all.

    I don't know if there is any way to pass other parameters to the
    ashQuick.exe program for various options like scanning depth, what to do if
    a virus is encountered, etc. If anyone has any info on how to pass other
    parameters please feel free to add the information to this thread.

    Lastly, I wouldn't suggest using the screen saver scanner in conjunction
    with this scheduled scan, as they may end up running at the same time and
    cause conflicts.


    Enjoy!

    Sound like a hell of a lot of work that most senior computer users would not be able to perform.
    Too bad Avast cannot work better with these users.

    Thanks for the reply Tom .
    When I try to schedule a scan , and check the
    appropriate boxes, when I go back to the
    page , all info is blank .
    I believe that Etaoin was correct that
    scheduled scans are only available in
    the " pro " version .
    Thanks again ,
    D.

    The scheduling feature was added in v5. And, it works fine for me.

    I did *not* say that it's available only in the Pro version. I have
    the free version (5.0.507, which is the most recent) and it works for
    me. If you're having trouble with scheduling in the free version, try
    downloading a fresh copy, uninstalling what you have, and reinstalling.
