Boot time scan help
« on: July 14, 2004, 07:07:42 AM »
Hello all.  I am trying to do a boot time scan on the home edition (I have the reg key), but it is greyed out in the menu.  Clicking on it doesn't do anything.  Is there something that I need to do to make it a selectable option?  Thanks for any help.

Hmm... I tried posting a picture, but can't see it anywhere.  I'm not sure if it is up here or not.

The boot-time scan is supported only on the NT platform (i.e. Windows NT/2000/XP). What OS do you use?

Windows 98 SE.  Guess I'm out of luck then, huh?

I'm afraid you are... the boot-time scanner uses special NT-platform specific features, so it really cannot be started on Win9x.
