AVG boot scan. . .

How do I disable it?

Just built a little W98SE toy and Free AVG loads on boot and scans before Windows loads. What setting disables it?

it's been too long.

There is only one line in my autoexec.bat file:

C:\PROGRA~1\GRISOFT\AVG7\BOOTUP.EXE

and the config.sys is blank.

Can I just remove that line in the autoexec.bat file?

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
