Scan Time?
« on: October 07, 2009, 11:54:53 PM »
Hi,

Does the Pro version scan any faster then the free version?

Also, should scan take so long? When I do a thorough scan it take 6-8 hours to complete....and for some reason my little light on the front of the computer is not lit up like when there is HD activity...is it setup wrong?

how many TB are you scanning  ???  ;D ...should never take that long, you got a hardware issue or something; and no, Avast pro doesn't scan faster than avast free. This said Avast is also one of the fastest anti-virus when it comes to scanning, even with archive scan enabled.
