Malwarebytes scannning time.

  Bald Eagle 11:09 22 Sep 2009

I'm running Vista Home Premium. C drive used size is 52GB and D drive is 6.25GB.

Ran Malware overnight on full scan and it took 11hours 18 minutes to scan 241274 items. Is this par for the course? Other programs I've used are much quicker, I assume they aren't as thorough.

Does seem slow for that amount even on a deep scan, have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling?

Tried unloading and reloading. Just stopped it after 6 hours! Decided to cut my losses and give up on the program.
