Schedule Avast Boot-Time Scan

For detecting and removing malware from the system, the effective way is to run Avast Free Antivirus boot-time scan. It is effective because the scanning process runs before the Windows starts and thus there is no chance for rootkits and other modifiers to hide themselves.
There are two important things you need to keep in mind:
  1. Those who are not acquainted with this process of detecting can easily delete or move system's files.
  2. The process of boot-time scan can take very long.
If your Avast Free antivirus is not updated or has a previous version, then either touch or right-click on Avast icon in the system tray. Expand update and then select Program.

First, schedule a Boot-time scanning-

  1. Access the Avast User Interface.
  2. Go to Protection> Antivirus.
  3. Select Other Scans option.
  4. Choose Boot-time Scan.
  5. Click Run on next PC reboot after clicking Install specialized definitions for running the detecting process letting the other system restart. 
    You will see a screen of a scanning progress as Window loads when the system restarts. If you want to skip this process then press Esc key from your keyboard.
  6. Now choose the action which you want to take after detecting any threat after the process completes. You can do it in Boot-time Scan settings. 
    This scanning procedure will take time, depending upon the system and the number of the files to be scanned. Windows will continue to boot up when the scan finishes or skipped.

Adjust the Boot-time settings-

  1. Go to protection> Antivirus> Other Scans. On Boot-time scan click on the gear icon.
  2. On the left side of the screen use the tabs available for managing the parameters of scanning.
  3. For saving your changes click OK.
