Size and speed of your hard drive as well as how full it is one factor in how fast or slow it will scan.
the other factor is your processor speed and amount of ram you have.
A slow computer will take longer to scan than a faster one.

Also MSE is not known to be a fast scanner.

The initial full scan will take longer than subsequent scans, however, as has been mentioned other factors can influence the time to perform the scan.

MSE is performing a very thorough scan. If you are scanning many iso,zip,exe,wim files then the scan will take a longer time than when scanning documents.

Be sure to update your system specs. that info helps us to make better judgements.

Post a copy of your disk management output. Perhaps then we will make some more suggestions.

UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS


User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |


Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

Do me a favor and add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.
====================================



HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY

Run disk management:
WIN | type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar key combo (this pops up a menu) |
X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field. This is very important, otherwise, needed info is not visible.

Make a snapshot:
WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER
Click the New button.
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save button

Post the snapshot:
· Click on the paperclip icon in that row of icons at the top of the message box.
· Click on a BROWSE button. There are 5 of them.
· Navigate to the folder containing the snapshot.
· Click on the snapshot.
· Click on the OPEN button.
· Click on the UPLOAD button adjacent to the 5th BROWSE button.
· Close the MANAGE ATTACHMENTS window.
· Position the cursor at the spot in the message where you want the
snapshot to appear.
· Click on the PaperClip again.
· Click on the file which you want to insert
· Attach code will be inserted into your message.

I use to have MSE on my PC until I upgraded to Kaspersky PURE. The initial scan did take a while for me and I have a minimal amount of data on my HD. I did notice mine would get hung up on a few files but then continue so it was probably analyzing them more closely than others.

In the search box, type SNIPPING TOOL

Does snipping tool appear above in the list above the search box.

If it doesn't show up then you can always use MS Paint.

Doesn't matter if you do one, two, or three scans, the "full" scan is slow. It's just the way it works on MSE.

Anyway this isn't the first time this issue has been brought up......
