I remember reading some time ago of somebody complaining about Avira's scanner getting stuck during the scan, I didn't really think much at the time as I very rarely scan my system nowadays. When I first installed the upgrade to version 9 I ran a scan as a test and everything seemed fine. Today I thought to run another full system scan (this would be the second with the new version), and that's when things didn't go as they should: the scanner would get stuck at around 17% keeping my CPU at maximum. After a few more test scans (so time consuming to troubleshoot anything, that sometimes I really think it would be easier and faster to get infected and re image the system) by trial and error my conclusion is that Avira's scanner will scan my system completely only when you set the configuration to default values. For some reasons, when I change things like enabling Scan/All files, Archives/All Archives types, the scanner gets stuck at around 17%. I don't mind running Avira with default configuration, but I just wonder, this wasn't happening with the previous version. If anybody can help it will be much appreciated. I will eventually post in the Avira forum too.
