AVAST software.....hanging on boot scan???

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by hamiltoncruiser, Sep 22, 2007.

  1. I installed Avast on my Vista laptop..I OK'ed a scan on re-
    boot....while the scan was going on....the screen went black and my
    laptop power light flashed orange (it *changes* to orange when it
    sleeps). So I pushed the power button, thinking I would see the DOS
    Avast scan again...still the black screen.

    The hard drive is working hard so I *think* the scan is still
    happening but I'm nervous because I can't *see* the scan happening.

    Any suggestions?

    Just an off-hand idea, stop the scan, turn off the sleep mode, run the scan,
    turn the sleep mode back on...
