Start up scans

Recommended Posts

I haven't used Windows for a few years, but my still father does.

A few weeks ago he had a nasty spyware, which SuperAntiSpyware, at the suggestion of a friend, erradicated (thank you very much)!

We had him load BoClean, also.

My father lives an hour away (and an ultra-newbie, so he doesn't understand these products).

He told me his computer takes a long time to boot (maybe ten minutes).

He asked about the registry (presumably, there is something that takes place on boot that scans the registry...I really don't know).

In any event, does SAS scan the registry, and if so, how would I tell him to disable this feature for faster boots.

If, on the other hand, BoClean might be the culprit, please let me know.

Only SUPERAntiSpyware PRO has this feature

If you have the pro version, open SuperantiSpyware, click preferences, go to the Real time protection tab and uncheck this:(see screenshot below)

It should not take 10 min to boot, Sounds as if there has been a reinfection. Have you had him scan lately with updated definitions? :)
