computer scan

Recommended Posts

Simple question from a novice who is testing ESET for a month. How long does a computer scan last? I have run it for 24 hours and it still won't stop,

Thank you for a reply

It depends on the number of files and the type of files. For instance, large archives or containers (e.g. iso images that may be several GB in size with dozens of thousands files inside) may take a long time to scan as each file needs to be extracted first and then scanned. You can try temporarily disabling scanning of archives just to see how much the scan time will drop.

On average my in-depth scans take about 1H 45M and scan just over 1.7M objects.
