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

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.

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.
