You can see the command line options here - https://support.avast.com/index.php?...articleid=1240

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

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.

Does Free Avast Antivirus Have A Firewall?
I'm just about to change from paid Avira Pro to free Avast antivirus. The Avira had a firewall, but does the free Avast have one? If not, what should I do? Am I right in thinking that my Win7 has a firewall, and if yes, is it enough to rely on this? Thanks for any advice.
