to scan the whole file system as superuser:

open a terminal
sudo avgscan /

as root:
gksu avgscan /

to update as superuser (this will be enough):
open terminal
sudo avgupdate -o

If someone tells you to su rm -rf /
DON'T DO IT!!!!

Thanks Joe

That's very cool stuff. I wonder if the command line scans and update run faster without the GUI overhead.

Much faster. Without having to dedicate resources tot he front end, it is left to dedicate a majority of the system to just do it's job. In Linux, it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes anyways, with or without the front end.
