That's still long if you consider this.....

You scanned 520,000 items in an hour 13 minutes

I scanned more than 10 times your number (5,560,136) and did it in 4 hours 15 minutes.

My scan took 4 times as long as yours but avaraged 1,390,034 an hour - more than twice your files in an hour. Now there are other factors that goes into this (size of files), but still....

Umm.... No???

I think common sense dictates a daily full scan isn't needed

This process is really bound by HD speed and CPU speed. Once a portion of a file is loaded for scanning, the CPU speed takes over completely till it's time fo rthe next read. So those of us with fast machines and fast drives will have completely different numberds from other people with slowr drives and or slow computers. In fact I would expect it to be all over the map. The only real comparison /may/ be to compare an eset full scan with an MSE full scan on the same machine but even in that case the depth of the scan and the method of scan may be so different that it's also irrelevant. (And it's possible that a faster scan could be better, would take a LOT of testing to determine anything concrete )

As I stated, there are other factors involved

And to reiterate, I still like the product, I just think MSE is slow with regards to "full" scans. The numbers bear those out.

FYI:

I just completed an ESET online complete scan:

284,000 scanned files in 90 minutes.

This compares to yesterday's MSE 2 scan of 887,000 items---also in 90 minutes.

Total space occupied is 1.05 TB across 3 partitions.

C: 24 gigs on a WD black 7200 rpm
D: 339 gigs on the same WD black
E: 682 gigs on a WD green 5400 rpm

I did not knowingly exclude anything from the scans.

Dunno about the discrepancy between 887,000 versus 284,000.

If you had MSE2 set to do a full scan, that's what it does. It scans everything.

Do you know how Eset was configured for your scans, and any of the characteristics of that configuration?

Here is a pic of the config screen with the choices I made.

You will note that the screen says that another antivirus app was detected. If you click the "show list" link, it says Windows Defender (not MSE). I did NOT disable MSE or Defender.

I'm not overly concerned about the discrepancy in the file count, but would like to hear comments nonetheless.

Since one of the biggest complaints about anti-virus programs is their sluggishness and heavy load on the system, many companies skip scanning files deemed not risky. Anak called it with his comment that when you tell MSE to scan everything it scans everything.
