Hello Vopiyoushii and welcome to the forum.

What is your OS, 32 or 64-bit?

You are best to keep your settings to default settngs for now (do not make changes).

To do a boot-time scan:

Open the the Avast GUI > click on Scan Computer > click on Boot-time scan > Schedule Now > Restart your computer.  It will take a while to run.

Tnx... but i know how to start "on Boot scan", i want to know where to set default answer to founded objects, like it was in Avast 4. The objects like "Ignore (for all)", and "Put in a quarantine (for all)". Throughout on Boot-time scan, i'm waiting for the first founded alert, to check out this options. Early, i set default options before starting on Boot-time scan. It was so comfortable.

That option isn't available in avast5's boot-time scan. It may be re-introduced in avast 5.1.

its good if there is an option to reconfigure the boot scan
"advance user" or "default setting" before running bootscan.
advance user can be monitor and decide where to put, delete or ignor
default setting is automatically move to the chest

but im thinking ::) ??? if this option is introduced in avast 5.1 do i have a capability to identify threats to be ignored or delete  ;D ;D ;D

just kidding  ;D ;D ;D

There is nothing to stop you selecting an option to apply to all detections in the boot-time scan, after you have the first detection.

Deletion isn't really a good first option (you have none left), 'first do no harm' don't delete, send virus to the chest (a protected area) and investigate.

When you say "chain," do you mean the Avast Virus Chest?

maybe chain = all and it is a very bad idea, when your press move to chest all its okay but if you chain "delete all"

sometime you will supper in loop reboot :P

@ bong2x,

We can only guess until we hear back from the OP. 

Also, you do not need to write your user name in your post to save room in the thread.  Thank you.  ;)
