Spy Bot- Going slow.

  ExPara 10:23 21 Feb 2006

When I run SpyBot, it runs fairly quickly until it reaches "CoolWWWSearch.Feat2DLL/installer" and other "CoolwwwSearch." files. It then takes about 20-30 mins to check them. Once they have been checked, the rest of the test runs quickly. The test run used to take about 13 mins to run, it now takes about 40 mins. Any ideas what's up?

I don't know what the problem is, but if it's any comfort, mine has started doing the same thing since the last update. Mind you, yours does take considerably longer than mine (approx 5 minutes for a 200 Gb disk).

Forgot to mention, that a full scan may take upto 25 minutes, and click on remove when infections appear.

Thanks all for your time. I un-installed Spybot and then downloaded and run the programme again. It now does the scan in about 13 mins.
