"C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast\ashQuick.exe" "*STRT-MEM-SHORT"
The *STRT-MEM-SHORT scans (besides the startup items) the modules loaded in memory: the corresponding files, not the real memory.

Is this what the avast! on-demand scanner does at startup ?

I think that boot sectors and memory should be checked
when the system is first started. Before windows starts.

Try:

So, if you want a real thorough check of the memory/ startup, I'd rather recommend using both the parameters *STRT-MEM-SHORT and *MEMORY together (or, *MEMORY, *MEMORY-SHORT and *STARTUP for all the user accounts). Like this:

"C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast\ashQuick.exe" "*MEMORY" "*STRT-MEM-SHORT" "*STARTUP" "*STARTUP-SHORT"

Thanks Technical, for a great explanation of the parameters and there uses with AshQuick.exe. I have gone with your last option quoted above, which is now working in the shortcut path, my error was trying to contain the extra parameters within  the speech quotes of the URL path.

Even with the thorough scan options listed the scan doesn't take very long at all 45 seconds (I don't have a large amount of programs opening at  startup).

I can see from the interest after your explanation, this will be very useful to many others and hopefully become a future option that can be selected within the Resident Shield's options.

Thanks again, David

You're wellcome...
Maybe Alwil team add this option in the Standard Shild settings in the future.
Anyway, you can post this wish here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=57;start=345 (the 'WISHLIST')  ;)

it is possible to made low level service which starts immediately after kernel ...

it's just very complicated to code ...

and btw someone said u can't define order what is started on boot ... i got somewhere util which was able sort and set all services starting after kernel ...

so it is possible , what matter is HOW HARD is to code it  ::)
