31.35 minutes with that much data? Now that's fast... Avast has always been a fast AV scanner...

Not for me.

~40 min on a full system scan.

EDIT: BTW I used to get ~7 min with Avira.

Avast is lighter and uses less resources that MSE

I have only used Avast! 5 Free briefly but it is not fast.

It depends on the user what the right av program is but I also recommend Avast! over MSE.

You can somewhat speed up the full scan if you enable the persistent cache.

Is this 2 fast-capturei.jpg

Also speed kind of depends on your hardware. If you have say a corei7 oc'ed, and/or an ssd, a full scan would be that much more faster. Takes me about half that time with about the same amount of data scanned.
