If i pause my virus scan and then reboot my computer, will the scan resume from where it left off when the computer turns back on?

Thanks in advance,

The short answer is No

The reason is because with a 'reboot' you 'wipe the slate clean' of any activity that was going on. All running programs are closed during shut down prior to the restart.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
