Large gap between number of files scanned

Recommended Posts

When scanning with Malwarebytes (both in safe mode and normal mode) on a Windows 7 machine, I notice that in the first few seconds of the scan it jumps from approximately 1500 files to approximately 28000 files in less than a second, while 'Scanning filesystem objects...'. Is this indicative of any kind of infection or possible problem? Or is that perhaps representative of free space on the HDD? I did a little bit of browsing both on the forums here and the internet in general and wasn't able to find anything addressing the issue. Thanks in advance for any possible illumination shed :)
