    Besides a permanent real-time scan for the running processes, all files on the hard disk are daily scanned for viruses on a preset time. These default scan settings can be changed by the main AVG window, Tools, Advanced settings, tab Schedules (in the left pane), sub tab Scheduled scan. Here, the scheduled time can be changed to a more favorite time when the computer is usually on but not used. By choosing for a specific day (see example), the daily scan can be changed to a weekly scan (for normal use, a daily scan is not necessary).
