what size is your hard disc and how much space is used.the more you have installed the longer it will take.

i have around 15gigs and with avg it takes around 20mins or so.more than that expect it to take longer.when i used norton 2002 it took around about the same time to scan the same size of files.

an hour is maybe a bit too long.does it show that its actually scanning the files or does it hang anywhere?on previous scans how long did it take?

maybe a defrag might help or if you have other programs running then shut them down first.
