Question AVG Free - Automatic Scans?

I use McAfee Antivirus because I get it for free with my Verizon with MSN subscription, but a friend's Mcafee was expired and she wanted a free antivirus so I downloaded the free version of AVG for her, updated it, and ran a scan. Does anyone know if you can set the free version up to check automatically for updates, and also to run scheduled scans in the background like I do with McAfee? If you can, can you tell me how to get to where you schedule the automatic scans....like where you put in what time you want it to do a scan.
