Hi Everyone, I have been experiencing big slowdowns with Nod32 scan times for a few weeks and now some intermittent freezes during both scheduled scans and In Depth Analysys. Nod has been taking around 33 minutes to scan 121790 files whereas it was always around 15 minutes for that number of files. During some recent "on demand" and scheduled scans the program has either just stopped working a few minutes into the scan or just frozen the system to the point of blacking out the screen & even the taskbar. The Nod window will still be there but nothing is happening and even though the mouse pointer will move nothing is clickable and nothing will bring up the Task Manager in order to end the process. After reboot the scans will run without problem - just taking a long time. Everything else is working well on the PC. All other scans are working at normal speeds and are returning clean reports. My HijackThis log is clean as well. Nod is updating automatically and I have no other background monitoring programs (such as Ewido) operating during scans - just my firewall. Is my only remedy to download a fresh copy and go through the routine of reinstalling and setting up again? I thought I had finished with all that nonsense when I got rid of Norton and fell in love with Nod32! Can somebody suggest issues may be worth looking at first and if not just remind me of the correct procedure getting an uninstall/reinstall done properly. TIA, Elray.
