Excessive run time for Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any thoughts as to why Malwarebytes would be running at a snail's pace? There is not an excessive amount of information in storage, but I have been forced to run in normal mode as the advanced boot options menu would not open for me to get to safe mode. I'm only showing 18 infected objects out of around 450,000 but it took us almost 30 hours to get there. This machine has been severely neglected it would appear, and for some time. Maybe this is to be expected given the circumstances, I just thought I would double check. Any Thoughts?

Thanks ahead of time everyone!

Hello and :D

Scan times can very from computer to computer, it all depends on how much ram you have, how fast your computer is, and how many files are scanned.

All that is really needed is a quick scan provided you are using the latest version of Malwarebytes which is v1.46 with Database version 5102.

It also could have taken such a long time due to temp files, and also due to the infections that were found.
