Hi everybody.

I have problems with setting automatic updates and scan with my AVG Free antivirus and Microsoft antispyware.

AVG: I set it to search for updates and scan between 18.00-19.59 but it starts at 8.00.

Microsoft: It doesn't allow me to set update search after 11.59. If, for exampke, I set it to 15.00 it will change immediately to 3.00, jumping 12 hours back.

This is not the first time that I see this problem. The real time clock of the computer is adjusted correctly on a scale of 1-24 hours (no AM, PM).

Does any one have any Idea? Thanks.

Maybe because the Automatic Updates time is 3AM.
Go to, Control Panel->Automatic Updates, change the time.
My guess is M$ antispyware updates occur with Automatic Updates.

Do u have the latest version?
To check it, Open M$ Antispyware; Click Help->About.
Check if the version is 1.0.615.
