setting scan on AVG

I have AVG free on my Windows XP computer. On AVG, when I click Tools/Scans/Schedule Scans, I can?t seem to get the time to stay at 12 AM. I can set it for Mondays at 12 AM But for some reason it always reverts to 3 AM. This is a vicious cycle. Can anyone advise me. Thank you. user470

Schedule

Hello,

could I ask you to remove the "sched.cfg" file from this folder*:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg9\cfg

- then reboot your computer and check the situation again. All AVG schedules will be restored to default values and it should be possible to change the scheduled time.

Thank you

* Some files or folders could be hidden by default. This can be changed in Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View tab -> Show hidden files and folders. (The location and names can vary, depending on the operating system version).

To Dusan: To Dusan: I followed your instructions. When I get to ?cfg? how do I remove the ?sched.cfg file?? Do I right-click on ?cfg? and then click delete? Thank you. user470

Re: To Dusan

Hi,

Yes, you can use right-click and delete option, or use "Delete" button on your keyboard and confirm removal.

Then restart computer and set the scan time again.

Thank you

Re: To Dusan

Hi user470,

are you using other protection applications or firewall? Are you using application "ASK Toolbar"?

Is possible to upload mentioned "sched.cfg" file to some online storage for closer analysis?

Thank you

To Dusan: The only way I could answer that is by saying that I have a firewall set up by Windows XP and it has been set up for about five years now. user470

Re: To Dusan

Hi,

could you please find mentioned file "sched.cfg" again and make a copy of it in some folder (or Desktop) - use options copy/paste.

Then visit favourite online storage (for example rapidshare) and upload this file to it, then provide us with link to this file.

Thank you

Dusan: I thought that I would let you know that even though the date and time was done by the computer and not my choice (WED. 12 PM) I still got the AVG scan and at the present time I am satisfied. use470
