Boot Time Scan with Avast
« on: April 22, 2019, 04:56:44 AM »
Hello All

after running Windows Defender a while on laptop machine,  listened to a local tech that is recommended protection, tomorrow reinstalling Avast Free on it,  should I run a boot time scan to make sure no hidden infections, systems running fine,  I guess for reassurance aspect might make me feel better doing that.

Thank you in advance all

P.S.  Avast running great on Desktop machines, so happy there,  should've never uninstalled it from laptop or not installed it after 1809 came out---dummy decision I think in my mind

I look at it this way; it's your time, your peace of mind and never any harm being thoroughly cautious.  ;)
