And by the way, no other antivirus has the boot-time scan like avast! does.
This list says there are some that have it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_antivirus_software
I have never found it in AVG? so they must be hiding it well, the rest i don`t now

Such Awesome advice here on this Forum.  Well I guess I'm good for now.  Got all the layers of protection I need.  Avast 4.8 Pro, PC tools Firewall Plus and the Malware Protection.  No boot sector scan for me required for now.  As for version 5.1 well I guess I'm stuck waiting.  Hey will they allow people to upgrade for free to the internet security suite with the included firewall since it might not cost that much more.

Ran the AVG Remover...didn't find any of it on my  system which is good.
