I have automatic virus scans set to never.... (id like to manually do it)... but the "file sheild scan" i think its called... seem to scan, random files, whenever the heck it wants.

any way to put a stop to this?? I mean im glad its scanning, but id rather it not happen when the phone is supposed to be sleeping, with wifi and mobile data off (therefore no real threat of malware or viruses).... its not supposed to be reading or writing anything (except maybe recieving a text message, but it doesnt even correspond with that at all)

any way to set it to scan, but only when i tell it to?? or to only be agressive like that when wifi or mobile data is set to on?? or, something??

It's a bug Avast is working on. It's not technically scanning it is just an 'immortal notification' saying it did. Supposedly this i fixed in the new testing beta.
