AVG scan times

  six-h 22:36 15 Sep 2009

Having just done a clean istall of XP Home on my 2GHz Celeron lappy with 1GB RAM, I'm surprised how long it takes to do it's scheduled scan (using default settings).
The "C" drive is currently 8.15GB, "D" drive only 2.2GB. A total of 280,000 items.
Leaving the machine idle whilst it scans, it invariably takes 1hr 50mins to finish.
Processing the folder "C:\Windows\installer" takes a full half hour (about the same as for the Sys32 Folder), sometimes I get the feeling it's got into a loop but no, it eventually completes that one and continues to the end!
Is this normal, or could I slim this folder down?

Change it to fast scan it will probably take at least 20 minutes off of the time.

buteman; you're right, "Fast Scan" does clip 20 mins or so off, but I was concerned about the enormous size of the "installer" folder.
I've not noticed this folder on my Vista machine, don't know if there is one, or an equivalent in Vista.
Mind you, my PC is considerably more powerful, so it plows through all the data much more quickly and even monster folders don't seem to cause noticeable delay.
