Not wishing to be mean, but if you had any chance of writing a boot-time AV scanner you would not be posting such a question here. Leave it to Avast. The wheel has been invented... use your time doing something else.

I'm sorry, but I am not quite sure what you are asking....may i point out that there are several offline or boot-time antivirus scanners available? Boot scan, offline scan? Avast in their installable AV product have a setting which allows you to scan your system before Windows actually starts; Avira and Bitdefender have bootable cd products which perform an offline AV scan [again without Windows being started]. They are updated with new definitions continually/daily.

http://www.avira.com/en/support/support_downloads.html :: the Rescue System download.
-with both these tools you burn a cd from the iso. The Avira version is already fully updated when you get it, Bitdefender's will automatically update when started if a net connection is available.

What is the software you are implementing? What is the purpose of that software? What does it do? Why you are implementing it? I think we need more infor as to what purpose of that software before booting it to login. Are you talking about autoexec.bat or config.sys files?

Or perhaps i focused too much on your mention of an AV. Do you mean some utility that runs, say, in kernel mode before winlogon runs? Then I really am not sure... boot mode does me. [XP doesn't look at autoexec or config.sys].
