What is Boot Time Protection?
Boot Time Protection increases security when you start your computer. A startup scan is an antivirus scan that runs before the operating system has fully loaded. This allows RAM Antivirus to scan files before they are used by another program or the operating system.
Startup viruses: These viruses attach to the system areas of your PC and become active as soon as your PC starts. They can be attached to discs or other storage devices connected to your PC. RAM Ultimate Antivirus scans the system areas of your PC to find and remove startup viruses.
