Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Vegetative bacterial cells will die in minutes so yes 

Enveloped viruses will die aswell but certain small enveloped viruses can survive longer 

bacterial endospores will survive 

Protozoan cysts are known to survive up to 90 C but wont last long in a 10 min boiliing session 

So the correct answer is both vegetative bacterial cells and enveloped viruses 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
