A full scan will take a while, especially if you have a lot of stuff on your system. You might want to stop the scan and then do an on-line scan with Kapersky - Free Virus Scan - Kaspersky Lab or ESET - Free ESET Online Antivirus Scanner. I did that, and then set MSE to do quick scans daily.

That should be interesting. I suspect that they will continue to tout their excellent programs, without going the free route.

I don't see Microsoft killing them, just winging them a bit.

Quick scans generally take no longer then 15 minutes for me, full maybe an hour? Never paid to much attention.

yeah I love how it actually is a quick scan. No more than 10 minutes, compared to other vendors 'quick' scans of half an hour or more. And that was just just the first install scan, every subsequent scan has been shorter!

It took about an hour to do a full scan with about 700,000 files.

Hi Dinesh,

Although I and a lot of other people class this item as undesirable, including some antispyware companies - the actual status is open to dispute as it is actually supplied by some major OEM's such as HP and Dell
