Do you get any error messages? How do you notice that it is not working?

What Avast version are you using?

There are many such topics in the forum related to Boot Time scans.  The New Boot Time scan run under the Windows Runtime Environment (WinRE) introduced around the end of July 2022, in Avast 22.7 - https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=320488.0 had an issue for some.

However, without exact details of which product operating system and version this is speculation.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.10.6038 (build 22.10.7633.734) UI 1.0.733/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
