My OS is Vista 64bit SP2. I have 6 GB of RAM and my processor is a Intel Core i7 920. I have over 600,000 files/objects on the computer. That's about 90 GB. I run Spybot-Search & Destory 1.6.2 in advance mode.
I have avast Home Edition 4.8, Windows Defender, Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I keep them updated; both application and database. When I use the malware/spyware/anti-virus scanners in each malware software, they take between an hour to an hour and half. In each, I choose "thorough/full" scan option each time.
Spybot-Search and Destroy 1.6.2 takes under 6 minutes!!
Although I wished the others were a little quicker, 6 minutes does not give me a lot of confidence that Spybot-Search & Destroy is doing the job of scanning and securing my computer from unwanted malware. Six minutes is to quick! I have selected "All available checks" under "File Set" tab in the hope that it will scan/check for problems a little longer. No luck.
Am I missing something?
Can anybody using Spybot S&D assure me that Spybot S&D is doing the job?
What do you, my follow forum members, think?
