    BS settings, scans typically took 25 minutes. Now looking at 75 minutes. Nothing has changed on my system.

    Ideas?

    When were you comparing? Not having a go at you, but were the 25min scans several years ago, as in the newer 75min scans may now scan for more items (Potentially Dangerous Applications etc) and also may be scanning more data?

    Cheers :D

    I'm talking two weeks ago (25 minutes) versus a couple days ago (75 minutes).

    Nothing has changed on my system, same amount of data and apps installed.

    My deep scans are the same as always - between 20 and 30 mins.

    Sometimes it takes longer to scan because it scans System Volume Information folder which constantly grows with every restore point if your System Restore service is turned on. I disable the service and it's back to 20 min. scan.

    it must be something local to the OP's machine - my scans around the 20th last month were 4400 seconds, and last night it was 4300 seconds - so yes, I'm seeing scans around 75 minutes, but mine appear to have been that long for as long back as I have logs.

    I think my weekly scan C drive took about 27 minutes with latest version. Good or bad. :D
