If the antivirus does not look at files installed during reboot, how
can you prevent virus infection. Knowing that, if I were a virus
developer, I would schedule virus intrusion to the reboot time in
order not to be caught by antivirus. If I were an antivirus SW
developer, I would try to ensure that antivirus is the first running
service after local disks are accessible, before network becomes
available, before any boot actions are executed. (In my Linux computer
firewall starts earlier than the network.)
