6 hours + to scan. Help please.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Can anyone help please?

Within the last week or so whenever i run a full deep scan it is taking up to 6 hours and over to finish the scan.

Never had this problem before and as far as i know i have not altered anything or any programmes.

Also when i scan i have no other programmes open.

Someone mentioned i could have .dll files in my system at fault.

And god knows if i know what they are.

By the way i have uninstalled and reinstalled twice but still takes for ever to scan.

I have newest version of FREE SuperAntiSpyware.

And I am on windows xp sp2.

Thanks.

As far i remember i read somewhere on the forum it was a proplem with DDA (Direct Disk Access) try and turn DDA off and scan igain.

If it doesnt help enable DDA igain, and wait for some professional help :)

You can turn off DDA in preferences --> scanning control.
