One user asked before "Unwanted pause during scan" at http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=22295.0 but it seems that is not possible.
I'm not sure if that is a limitation with the free version or if the paid edition will allow a user to configure avast Pro to not to pause during scan.
How can I keep Avast Antivirus from pausing during full scans of my hard drive whenever it finds some malware? As I do with other free antivirus and antispyware programs I run the free version of Avast overnight when I am sleeping. This allows me to do a thorough deep scan of all files on my hard drive. It takes hours. But unlike other antivirus programs Avast pauses its scan when it finds something, and demands that one take an action before it continues the scan. So when I wake up I get rid of that single piece of malware. I can't just pause the scan and continue the next night because Avast does not remember the pause once the computer has been shut down during the day. It starts the scan from the beginning. Is there a way to get Avast to finish a scan, and only list the malware after it has finished? This is how other antivirus programs work.
