Yeah, I agree. Seems to be some kind of an issue with pdf scans on x64 systems. Maybe this: "Use "Process Monitor" i found that in such cases, the operation of the "IRP_MJ_CLEANUP" consume an unusually longer time." is a hint as where to look at?

Hello,
try current VPS 110401-2. It maybe fixes the slow scan of PDF files during boot time scan.

Looks like my problem was resolved by virus definition version 110401-2.

I now run like before

My thanks to whoever found and fixed this issue
