Boot Scan in 64 bit
« on: September 18, 2010, 10:15:28 AM »
Hello

I used to use boot scan a lot to pick up viruses etc that a normal scan would not detect. However I am now using a 64bit Windows 7 operating system and the option is unsupported.
I wondered how soon (if at all) the Avast! crew will get boot scan functioning on 64bit operating systems as I believe it is an incredibly important tool.  ???

Version 5.1 should be released within the next 2 months as to my understanding, and the 64-bit boot-scan is projected to be available in this version.  :)
