Custom Scan takes up to 8 hours to complete - Windows 7


Recommended Posts

Hi All; This month the Custom Scan (Full Scan) takes up to 8 hours or more to complete on many different computers. Previously these scans would only take up to 3 hours at the most. Has something changed? I don't understand why it takes so long this month? It seems to take the longest time while scanning the C:\windows\winsxs folder. Would it be recommended to NOT scan this folder or would that be too dangerous. Can infections get into this folder? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance... See details:
