Custom scan stuck

Recommended Posts

I have a fairly new PC and the first time I've run a custom scan (after a strange redirect on the internet) it becomes stuck at one file for over an hour. Threat scans take less than 2 minutes but the custom scan is taking over 3 hours so far. Any help is appreciated.

Follow the instructions below, then run a scan again.

  • Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC) and move it to your Desktop;
  • Right-click on TFC.exe and select Spcusrh.pngRun as Administrator (for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 users);
  • Simply click on Start to launch the clean-up and wait until it completes;
  • Depending on which processes are running, all your programs will be closed and explorer.exe (your Windows shell) will be killed, it will however be relaunched shortly after so do not panic;
  • There's no log to give for this tool;
