The Avast Rescue CD is scanning the system too slowly
« on: April 18, 2017, 02:45:12 PM »
After burning an Avast Rescue CD I tried booting my laptop from the CD and running a scan on my SSD System drive.
Everything works well but apparently for every file scanned on my SSD the optical drive has to read the Rescue CD, slowing the scanner down by probably 10-100x.

Why does the Rescue Scanner have to read from the CD every time a file is scanned on my system SSD? Shouldn't the scanner be loaded into physical memory after having been loaded from the CD?

On large systems this will make use of the Rescue CD very discouraging with unnecessarily long scanning times.

Without any information, it is not possible to tell why it is slow on that system.

I suppose loading the Avast Rescue Disk from an USB-memory would help speeding it up.
