The update info said that version 9 would do a scan in 80 percent of the former time. Before the update, a scan took two hours; after, it took one hour and 55 minutes. No real difference.
Program settings are currently: Scan targets are Local disk (C: and D: drives). Scan mode is super scan, and in smart mode. Scan options: Skip if great than 8 MB and all options chosen. No virus treatment exceptions.
I am running Vista Home Premium with service pack 2, on a 1.00GHz dual core laptop with 3GB RAM.
- Is it likely that the install went correctly and that the advertised reduction in time was referring to normal scans only?
- My research has me daily checking out some unusual or little used websites -- would it be wise to make my weekly scan a deep scan rather than a normal scan? Part two: Should I be running a daily normal scan?
