Boot records scan

You can also scan the boot sectors of the drives of your workstation with an on-demand scan. This is recommended, for example, when Avira AntiVir Premium finds a virus when scanning individual files or directories with on-demand scan and you want to make sure that the boot sectors are not affected.

It is possible to select more than one boot sector by keeping the Shift key pressed and selecting the required drives with the mouse.

You can have the boot sectors automatically scanned with on-demand scan (see Avira AntiVir Premium Configuration :: Scanner :: Scan :: Scan boot sectors of selected drives).

Scanning of the boot sectors with Windows Vista is only possible with administrator rights.
