Deleting bad files horribly slow

Recommended Posts

Over the past several weeks, the program (SAS, pro version) has been slowing down as it deletes.  Yesterday, after detecting 481 files of questionable character, cookies, bots, etc., I continued to let the program get rid of them. To my surprise, it started out more slowly than ever, so I decided to time it. It took 2.5 hours to delete them all. This has happened before, but not this bad. It should also be mentioned that, of the other 4 machines I use in my small business, non of them have this problem. I contacted support twice submitting my problem but they went unacknowledged. Anyone have any idea why this would happen? These are serious business only machines, operated by my wife and myself. Malwarebytes is my other defense program.
