Windows 7: Question on MSE; Full scan total items scanned

Question on MSE; Full scan total items scanned

Hi there.

I've recently switched over to using MSE and I am noticing some really random results when I run full scans.

The issue I am seeing is with the total amount of items scanned, in which seems to be completely random and I am not sure whether it is normal operation or not.

I ran 3 different full scans, with no adding/deleting of files and the same processes and stuff running and these were the numbers shown after a full scan:

Full scan #1: 287344
Full scan #2: 190056
Full scan #3: 245777

And one final full scan would return the results close to #1.

Is this normal operation of the software?
