Scan occuring on every bootup - Error: 0
« on: December 14, 2003, 02:20:30 PM »
Using the latest release of avast! Home, the install scan after restart always occurs.  The following text is displayed after the avast! copyright line at the start of the scan:

       .. Launching record not found Error: 0

How do I resolve/stop the scan from occuring during every bootup?  I have uninstalled and reinstalled avast! to NO avail.  Thanks in advance.

Maybe these links could bring you any solution:

Can someone provide clear instuction on how to resolve the problem?  The information in the links is vague at best.

Sorry, but doggeral gives the solution at that links:

Well if its not an obvious option in the program here is what I would do.  Generally programs that run prior to the Logon Screen booting in XP use a specific key (good ol' session manager).  

Browse to the following location in regedit

HKLM\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\Session Manager

on the right there will be a key labeled "BootExecute"  

Doubleclick that key and you should see at least the default value of "autocheck autochk *" which is scandisk.  Somewhere below that should be the path to avast (Alwil Software) with options (sorry I can't tell you what they would be or what the line will look like, bit i don't know however it should be obvious that it is avast) but anyway delete that entire line and you won't see it again.

This assumes you are on Windows XP.

Here's what that string looks like... Deleted, problem fixed.

C:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast4\aswBoot.exe /A:"*" /L:"English"

Thank you!
