Full scan is going on for more than 24 hours now!

wow that doesn't seem right for a scan to be taking that long. Does it look like it's stuck on the same file, by any chance?  On the scan page, is it in the "Scan File System" phase? If so, do you see different files being shown in the "Currently Scanning" field? Also, are you running 3.0.4 or 3.0.5?

Good morning @DragonFireDon! A full scan like you're running is designed to do exactly what you asked it, scan every thing on your computer. Excluding specific file types can be extremely dangerous as new infections come out all the time, and these infections can use things like videos, pictures, or text documents to load malicious code onto your computer.

As others have mentioned, the majority of time, running a threat scan is going to the best solution and keep you safe
