I'm using Avast Home Edition v4.8. I don't think it's configured to
automatically scan at boot time, or any other time, for that matter.
It's set up for "on-access" scanning, and the files in question
weren't being accessed at the time, except, apparently, by
svchost.exe. I've just added the paths where my media are stored to
Avast's exception list, so I'll see if that makes a difference.
