I think this the AVG memory check, open AVG and have a look at service/program settings there is an option that says "Run memory test at program startup". If you want to stop it un tick it. I'd leave it, as it doesn't take long to run.

Hi Belatucadrus..i think they might have altered it, it has not got a service/program..only a scheduler which can be turned on or off...

Hi Magik™, I think you'll find that on Win 98, the AVG is checking the DOS files at start-up but it doesn't happen in XP because, as far as I know, XP doesn't run on DOS.
I'm sure some kind soul will put me right if I happen to be wrong about this.

Wak, that sounds about right! Good thinking.

Magik™ you need to open the Anti virus panel, not the control centre. On the top left hand of the window it should say " Program Tests Results Service Help " If you click on Service there should be a drop down menu, Second on the list should be "Program Settings" click on this and you should get a window that will give you control of the AVG boot options.
