You can see the command line options here -

But i believe you can only run a scan from command line with the professional version.

Thanks, but those are for setup for avast!
I need them for the actual protection package.

Were I an owner/user I would join the support form. I am sure you can find what you are looking for. In the meantime I found some command line parameters

Type "aswcmd.exe" (without quotes), a space and a supported parameter to run commands. Common Avast command parameters are "/*" (without quotes) to scan local hard drives, "/c" (without quotes) to fully scan all files, "/h" (without quotes) to receive a help listing of all command prompt parameters and descriptions of the parameters, "/m" (without quotes) to test boot sectors and "/p" (without quotes) to have Avast automatically deal with viruses.

This came from this site.
