    Finally got around to updating to 4.0.467.0 from 4.0.437.0. I noticed the on demand scan took twice as long as the old one, went and checked, and it was scanning twice as many files. The log shows C:\A and C:\B locations being scanned. When I look at the old logs from 437, there is none of that.

    This make any sense to anyone?

    Hello winchester73,

    The C:\A\ and C:\B\ indicate folders on your hard drive. Do you have hidden files and folders being displayed? If so, do these folders exist on your machine?

    Hey Wayne, thanks for the reply. I checked the properties of C:\A and it is a mounted volume/RAM disk, created on 10/15 at roughly the time Windows Defender did a scan. C:\B doesn't exist. It appears that everything on C:\ is duplicated in the A folder, but I have the same hard disk space available now as I did before the RAM disk was created.

    For now, I'll tell NOD32 not to scan the A folder.
