    Default How long should a scan take?

    Help!!

    I have a scan running now. It's been going for 21 and a half hours and counting. It's found 386 infections from 5000+ files. Is this a normal length of scan? How can I deal with the infections it's found so far without simply cancelling the scan so that it starts from scratch the next time it runs a scan?

    ZASS v. 9.1.008.000
    Anti Virus Anti Spyware v 8.02.42
    Windows XP SP 2
    Dell Dimension 5000

    Invariably the first scan, in deep mode, takes the longest time. Subsequent scans are likely to be much briefer. My scans take about 45 minutes and covers thousands of items!
