I have just done a full scan of my c: drive using the virus scanner that comes with Zone Alarm Pro trial version and it took an hour and a half to complete. I have scanned my system many times and it has never taken this long. My 80gb HD is about two thirds full and it scanned over 90,000 files is this a disproportionate length of time for a full scan to take?
Since my reformat and XP reinstall, a full scan this morning was approx 20 mins with Avast, but that was without all the music files, photo's, letters, etc that were on the hd as before. An old scan with the hd nearly full, was about 90 mins. But it has been said that Avast tends to be slow, but I find it the best, and thorough.
wee eddie what a idyllic life you lead ;-) I tried scanning with AVG but it had only scanned half the files and was taking forever so I cancelled it as I was off to bed. I can set ZA so that it ignores any file biggger than 8MB
