Hey Guys! Today, I decided to make a quick tutorial on how to disable the scan on boot on your AVG Antivirus. Some may find it annoying because it will take quite some time before you can even use your computer.

To all my followers on my Facebook page, you already know that already I sold my desktop and it comes with the free version of AVG Antivirus. The person who bought my desktop asked me if what she saw was normal. Apparently, she was referring to the SCAN ON BOOT by AVG.

What is SCAN ON BOOT? The simplest way to explain it is to imagine the part where you turn on your computer then an automated system scan suddenly appears before you can even reach your lock screen or desktop. (See photo above)

SOLUTION

Just press theESC button on your keyboard to bypass the scan. When you reach your desktop. Open your AVG-Antivirus and follow the instructions below:

Click the SETTINGS icon
Click BOOT TIME SCAN
Disable the option

There you go, simple as that. Hope I was able to help you with your problem.
