I'm pretty sure it automatically downloads updates, and I'm sure there's a way to have it auto-scan on a weekly basis, but I'm not certain.
Apparently avast home version doesn't have a scheduled scan option (pro version does) but here's a workaround to have scheduled scans with the home version:
I think there's also some sort of screensaver mode? which scans whenever the screensaver is up; then interrupts it when you come back to the computer? Not too sure.
I use VIPRE Anti-Virus so I really have limited information on AVG/Avast except what I've read.
