Administration :: Scheduler

The Scheduler gives you the option of creating scheduled scanning and update jobs , and adapting or deleting existing jobs.

You can define that Avira AntiVir Premium searches for new virus definition files on the Internet server, for example, every 6 hours, and where appropriate loads and installs them. You can thus always keep Avira AntiVir Premium up to date without manual effort. Or you define that Avira AntiVir Premium is to scan the computer for viruses and unwanted programs, for example, daily at 22:00.
