The new scanning engines are more powerful than those in version 1.x.

They look in more places and scan more files, so it may lead to longer scan times (and it may appear to be hanging, even when it really isn't, e.g. on archives, such as zip and rar files).

Please post back and let us know if your issue is resolved.


Thank You,
