Avast Team,

My Process:
Did a 100% Un-Install and Re-Install of Avast Free
Set the boot time scan to run on next reboot
Downloaded the extra Virus Definitions
Reboot and results in a failure see below and full attachment.....

This is what I see in my log as attached, but this is what the tail of the Log looks like:

avfilesScanAdd *RAW:C:  [Fs: 03e706ff, NTFS; Dev: 07, 00020020]
avfilesScanAdd *STARTUP
avfilesScanRealMulti begin

What I see when it drops the boot scan is the word:  *STARTUP

The scan drops and windows starts up normally.

Could the "Downloaded the extra Virus Definitions" be the killer?

The 201008-6 Virus Definition update fixed my boot scan "closing" problem. Thanks.
