To schedule boot scan using Avast, follow the steps below:-


Right click on the Avast system tray icon
Click on “Start Avast Anti Virus”
Avast anti virus window will pop up and run a memory scan
Once memory scan finish, you can right click on the Avast anti virus window and select “Schedule Boot Time Scan”
“Schedule Boot Time Scan” window will popup, select “Scan all local disk” and check on “Advanced Options”
For normal infected file select “Move infected files to Chest” and select “No action” for system files and Press “Schedule” button.
Avast will prompt you for restart to perform the Boot time scan and click “Yes” to reboot and start the scan.
Done you have just scheduled a boot time scan from Avast anti virus
