    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.

    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.
