I'm also having this since yesterday. Just popping up into the main window for no reason every now and then.

Hi,

I suspect the OP is complaining of Avast activity at startup not necessarily have a Boot Time Scan scheduled, but they should check and confirm that is the case and report back with details of Avast processes that are causing concern at startup. Also whether free or paid Avast and version. Also Windows version.
