Hi there Forum Friends,

Out of curiosity, how long should the weekly scan for viruses and spyware take ?

Here are the details of my last 3 scans - after the 1st two, I removed programs that were no longer used and it took longer and longer.

Scan Date: 08.08.2009 No of Files scanned : 101,961 Time Taken: 01:59:15
Scan Date: 16.08.2009 No of Files scanned: 103,769 Time Taken: 03:19:28
Scan Date: 21.08.2009 No of Files scanned: 103,293 Time Taken: 03:47:02

It just seem ridiculously long. It used to take less than an hour and I dont have any major new programs on my PC. Can anyone share an explanation with me ?

Thank you,
Kind Regards,

(I am also not receiving automatic updates yet (Im in Scotland - does it matter where you live ?)
