    Sorry all user here, no ZA staff.

    Yes with the current version you can't do that automatically (the same apply for the deep scan) and honestly it makes little sense to scan everyday if you keep your system up-to-date and ZA always active. You will always be protected from new viruses by the "on-access" protection. If you have existing viruses active either is too late (security tool killed) or as before the malware will be treated "on-access". Also consider that you will contribute to reduce the life of your hard disk. On top, ZA received a lot of complaints from users doing like you say and at the same time complaining about their system been slow.

    So, I guess all the above contributed to limiting users in their scan flexibility.

    You can always go to the advance settings of the antivirus/antispyware and change the mode from quick scan to normal or deep scan. This way you will able to manually do your normal scans at your wish.
