    "Awesome Anti-virus with a few quirks"

    March 30, 2013  |   By robertjohn527


    Can customize scans to eliminate tracking cookies and gives the impression it offers great protection


    Will not allow me to edit the scan schedule to scan every night and shut my computer down upon completion. The scan can be scheduled but never runs at the time I set and computer will not shut down.

    @Gold Dust
    You are right and it does work great.

    Yes AVG can scan every night and turn your computer off. Just go into advanced settings then go into schedule scan than go into settings then drag the side bar to the bottom and there is where you can do it. I do and it works great!
