Boot-time Exclusions Needed
« on: May 05, 2014, 11:46:44 PM »
The one thing I don't like about the boot-time scan is the lack of an option to setup exclusions. Because of this lack the boot-time scan has a tendency to carp on the efforts of and waste time on malware already found and quarantined by other anti-virus/malware programs. Other than that I think Avast is the best anti-virus program and I recommend it to my customers on a regular basis.

Although you can't select what to exclude, you can select what to include:

The boot-time scan should honor the global exclusions set in the program (Settings / Antivirus / Exclusions / File paths). Doesn't it?
