Hi there, topic title should explain it. It does this so it can get me to upgrade to the paid version by telling me what performance issues my computer has after a lengthy scan. fair enough as you would expect a free version to want you to upgrade but it takes about 10+ minutes to stop choking my system as disk usage goes to 100%. i don't know why it can't just do this once and remember the results in the future, it wouldn't really make any difference.

for reference i am on windows 10
