    Full AV scan taking 10+ hours


      We have 8.8 SP2A installed and running the LD AV however if we want to do a full virus scan of a PC it takes well over 10 hours to do this. An online scanner takes around 5 hours so I am confused as to why this one takes so long. I have the CPU usage set to one notch before high. Am I missing something else?

          There's a plethora of potential factors that can factor in here.


          To be honest, I think it would be best if you open this as a support call, and work with support from there - since a lot of this will be affected by environmental and other factors that it's not really possible to give much of a blanket statement or comparison here (It starts already with questions such as your chosen online scanner was scanning for the same files (or a reduced filelist), details on how they work, etc. etc.) ... isn't really something that can be answered in a general way I think.


          The possibile reason for this are legion potentially, so needs to be looked at on a "case by case" basis.
