During install, choose custom, and uncheck avg add-ons and additional languages.
Once installed you must update the software and do a first time scan called an "Optimization Scan". Complete the first scan all the way through without interruption. To set-up automatic scanning Choose Options / Advanced Settings / Schedule / Scheduled Scan / Click the top button and uncheck the bottom one, and then choose your frequency and time of scans. I like once a week.
