I'm looking for a reliable, up to date AV product where it is possible to set up a custom scan and schedule this custom scan. Custom scans are important for me because on various home PCs and laptops I have attached drives and I don't want to scan all of them at the same time. The system drive might be scanned very day but some backups or network drives might be scanned only once a week or once a month. I would also like to control exactly when the scans are run. I used to use VIPRE; it has custom scans but up to version 4 they could not be scheduled. I have read on this forum that the VIPRE 5 beta includes scheduled custom scans. I've also used Microsoft Security Essentials, which, like VIPRE, allows normal scans to be scheduled, but not custom scans. I bought Bitdefender AV 2011, which does allow scheduled custom scans, but Bitdefender 2012 has apparently - according to the Bitdefender forum - removed the option for scheduling any scans. I looked carefully at the manuals for several other products (Kapersky AV 2011, Norton AV 2011...) but it seemed that nothing else offered this feature. So I am wondering if there is another AV product which I should be looking at? It doesn't need to be free - I am quite happy to pay for something which has this feature.
