Hi there,
Renewed my Bullguard subscription about 3 months ago and its not behaving like the old version did. I cant / dont know how, to set it to full scan once a week and quick scan daily at a certain time.
I just keeps scanning every time I 'wake' the computer.... very annoying as everything slows down.
It seems to take hours and hours to scan even though the time on the 'scan' says 2hrs45mins.....

Can you help please. Not good at all this IT stuff, its more 'monkey see, monkey do' , so please have your instructions very simple to understand if you can please.

Lyonsie, first timer.

Hi Lyonsie,

You can schedule scans as follows:

1. Open your BullGuard program and go to Settings ->Advanced ->Antivirus.
2. Press the "Manage Profiles" button from the lower right corner section of the window.
3. Select "Full scan" and go to the "When" tab.
4. Check the "I want to select a schedule" box and select a convenient time frame.

For more details and images, please check this guide.

Best wishes!
