Initial scan taking longer than 15 hours


Recommended Posts

I downloaded the free trial yesterday and ran an initial scan.  It's currently been running over 15 hours now and has only gone through 275,000 files.  I just purchased this computer in July and do not have many files or anything stored on here yet.  This run-time length seems wrong?

On my machine about 28,000 files were scanned in 1 minute. That said, scanning 275,000 files could take about 9 minutes.

How long does it take to scan the C : drive  if you run a custom scan, select only the C : drive to scan using the Smart scan profile?

On my Win 10 x(64) 2004 build:

1. Default SmartScan profile which includes registry and WMI scanning, a scan of 221, 326 files took 36 mins..

2. A prior custom scan excluding registry and WMI scanning of 249,702 file took 12 mins..

Bottom line - registry and WMI scanning increases scanning times by a factor of 3.
