Custom Scan takes long time

Recommended Posts

Yes scan times with version 2.0x will take longer and that is due to the new scan engine and the new features, which means more locations are being scanned for better detection...

Scan Times vary due to many factors some of which are listed below.

Size of disk

Disk type

Disk speed

Disk caching

CPU speed

Controller type and speed

Operating System used

Amount of files

Amount of folders

Rootkit scan or not (is this enabled)

Archive scan or not (is this enabled)

Amount of archived files such as zip, rar, sfx, etc.

PUM/PUP scans

Other security programs running at the same time that may potentially be monitoring all file accesses by any other process.

Drive integrity - if a drive is failing it can take a long time to ignore and bypass sectors on a disk or simply fail period and hang the scan.

Other ongoing disk I/O processes

System being infected can also affect speed of scans

Also note that changes in the MBAM database can also cause scan times to increase or decrease, so that's another factor to consider.
