I was able to comlete the Boottimescan early this morning and the screenshot shows me searching for the boot time scan log. How do I find it?

From the page you posted, double click on Avast then on Report.

I have two files for you, one that is an error and one that you may be looking for.

 

Also, can I show you a video of what happens when I try to free up space with the Disk Cleanup?

C:\ProgramData\Avast Software\Avast\report\Aswboot was the odd path.

Go back to the avast folder before bootimescan.  Look for a folder called report.  That's where you will find the file.  Also in File Explorer, View, check the box for File Name Extensions.  Without it you can't see what you have.  Obviously the Avast you clicked on is not a folder but a file called avast.reg.  We are looking for the file:

C:\ProgramData\Avast Software\Avast\report\aswboot.txt

There's a aswboot.txt in my last post. I think that is what you're looking for.

OK.  Didn't notice the attachment.  Boot scan is clean.  No infection.  Not even any corrupted zip files which we often see.  How long did this scan take?

I'm not quite sure, I'm thinking hours, I have my laptop in the basement and I ran boot time scan and went upstairs to go to sleep and when I woke up it was finished. 

 

 

I am going to show you a video.
