I have been using AVG Free on my desktop computer for months. Initially, and for some time since, the program scanned automatically each time I booted up. I put the same program on my laptop and it has never scanned automatically and I do it manually as I do with the desktop now.

I have scoured the help files looking for a way to schedule an automatic scan. It looks like I should be able to set a time and also elect to scan on bootup by checking the "If missed" box. Problem is I cannot find where to schedule and check the 'if missed' box.

Hep files seem to say I can do these things with the free version. Am I mistaken and, if so, how did I have auto scan and scan on boot up at one time before??

Thanks for the help.

Jim

Question: Are you talking about the AVG Antivirus free program or the AVG AntiSpyware free program? Also, which version?

I'm glad you have the problem worked out. Thanks for posting back. :flowers: Sometimes uninstalling and reinstalling is the best way to go. I was just getting ready to look for information about AVG AntiVirus free in terms of your question as I don't have the program myself, when you posted back.
