I'll give that a try. Removed the previous program because I was getting to many warning messages about trial had expired?.

spuds during instal take the tick out of the free trial, thats what i do with SAS as well.

free trials too much hassel when they end.

sunnystaines - just downloaded the program and ran a scan, and found it very fast. Didn't notice any tick box on this version, but there is a tag for upgrading. Also noticed that on start-up, it notified of later update and downloaded automatically so bringing version to latest.

I personally preferred the look of the "old" version.I think it looks like one of those fake antivirus programs? It's meant to be a simpler layout and easier to use but I think it is the opposite. I suppose it's just change and adapting to it! I can't get it to run the "quick hyper scan"?Maybe need to upgrade for that as I only have the free version at the moment.

"Anybody beat the 1 hour and 41 minutes to scan my computer"

I reckon less than 20 minutes going on my two responses above. That's running W7 Home version with very little junk on the computer.

Being wireless shouldn't make any difference to the scanning, it should run whether connected or not.

If its taking far to long to scan, then can only suggest that you have something running that is slowing the process down. Possibly an anti-virus or another malware program ?.
