Is it possible to resume a search after a reboot? My PC (actually the virus checker) is warning me it will be forced to reboot.Is there way to save the search and later have it resume where it left off?

I'm afraid that's not possible. You can save any found results using the File->Save Session menu option but you can't save the 'un-searched' list of files for later resumption.

OK, thanks. This might be a good feature. In my case FLP scanned viruses, Symantec found them and in order to 'mitigate' the threat rebooted the PC. It did warn me first so I would have had time to save and then resume the search. I can see this being an issue with Windows 10 too as it tends to arbitrarily reboot. The aborted searches I was running were up to 60 hours!
Sure, it's not the first time it's been requested.
