Avast boot time scan issue

Post by Hawq » Mon Jun 07, 2021 3:21 am

ugh Avast boot time scan decided to stop working & PC just goes straight into Windows, very annoying when I wanna run a scan, installs all the definition updates then just reboots Windows notmally with no scan, very annoying & I hope they do an update to fix it if its a bug on Avasts end.
Anyone else had this issue crop up? pretty sure there was an update not too long ago so maybe thats knackered it but I aint sure

I don't use Avast so don't know what's up.

Have you tried scheduling a scan in Avast and then rebooting?

Twice set it to do a boot time scan & twice it just boots Windows with no boot time scan being done, kinda frustrating, hopefully its an issue that the next update might fix (whenever that will be)
