Full Scan V3 Took 11 Hours

Recommended Posts

I have the Plus version. I upgraded when the new version notification appeared the other day. No problems with th upgrade, it went quite smoothly. The scan history reset to 'never scanned', so I selected a full demand scan. It took 11 hours to scan 300K files and consumed 80%CPU.

 

This is somewhat excessive, don't you think?

 

My system was last defragged less than a month ago.

Windows patches/fixes all up to date.

Running MSE 2 in real time

No USB connected devices during scan

Have 4M RAM

W7/32

No other applications opened during the scan

Have demand scanner installed (none loaded at the time of the scan)

Very few zip files (4 at most)

Full scans in previous version took 1 hour or so ... very fast

Are you using both the Clam and the Tetra engines? Also, it is not suggested that you run Plus w/ another full AV solution (like MSE) if you have Tetra or ClamAV enabled. To answer your question though, yes that seems long.

Hi Alfred,

Yes, I have the Tetra engine enabled, but I was not online when the scan was running. After about 1 hour I actually did think about that when I noticed how slowly the scan was running and I turned MSE realtime off. It made no difference, it continued at the same pace. I have the CLAM engine disabled.

 

Just an added note incase we end up getting into this all over again ....

 

.and here it is straight from the horses mouth - well Millard's anyway because Al is away for a couple of days.

 

"Plus is compatible with most other AV products, but because it is a full AV product itself, it is meant as a replacement. That being said, it should not cause any interoperability issues. I've not heard of anyone having problems with running Immunet Protect Plus with MSE's real-time protection enabled. The only reason I've heard of people disabling MSE is to squeeze more performance out of their system.

--Millard"

 

So there you go. Designed to work on its own but keep 'em both if you want
