    From my knowledge NO Unfortunately.

    Though, I have to say that this is a feature I miss in NOD as well, other AV's got it. Some call it (early start up)

    well then that is a problem you know..something that needs to be looked into...for example if the virus is already existing in the system..nod is unable to clean it..because it doesnt start after bios

    Create a Nod rescue CD or download a rescue iso from one of the many AV companies that provide them (Avira, Dr.Web etc). Burn as image to CD or DVD, set CD/DVD as first boot device in the BIOS and boot your computer with the disk. That way you can scan from outside your OS environment.
