But the problem is there are samples that will take days to be detected and others never are.

Yes, I see this problem, too...

virustotal may be slower with VPS updates... btw: some rogue samples should be detected now (either as Trojan-gen, Malware-gen or SuspBehav - our heuristics have been improved during this weekend and further improvements will follow as usual).. if you don't have the files to make a resubmit/rescan you can at least see the irrelevance of posting "empty" links, which you have no clue what they stand for :P
