'8 gig of memory ....plus it is quad core so it is superfast'

Superantispyware scan took 19 minutes to scan C/D/I Drives plus Malwarebytes took about 20 minutes.

Does this scan time sound about right or is the Superantispyware scan time a bit short?

Depends on the number of files on your computer - a quick scan with MBAM takes about 10 mins on mine.

If a full computer scan is requested with each program what type of time lapse can be expected?

On my main PC, cpu 3.16 Ghz (single core), 2 gig ram and 70 GB approx used, then Mallwarebytes takes 47 minutes to complete a full scan. I think SAS is a bit faster.

As stated,depends con whats on your drive.Doesent really matter,you can csrry on with what you are doing whilst it scans.

I don't know if any of this info is helpful but on laptop, cpu 1.76 GHz, 2gig ram and 34 GB approx used then scan just over 9 mimutes.

Just checked the SAS log on same laptop and a full scan ran for 44 minutes!
