    "Seven Hours For A Full Scan, No Thanks"

    November 14, 2012  |   By jaytee28


    Loads of good reviews


    Almost eight hours to run a full scan.


    How can anyone recommend a tool that hangs up your resources for a third of a day? And before you ask my system is fine. No wonder so many AVs ask you to uninstall this nightmare of a product.

    You may have PC that might be outdated, don't you?

    It didn't take me 7 hours for a full scan. 3 hours tops.

    There is a reason that quick scan is default checked, it is all you need in virtually all cases. A full scan is needed only if the quick scan fails for some reason.
