Hello, The current Dr.Web beta has the new scanning engine that is supposed to be a lot faster. Apparently they have re-designed the virus databases and have new algorithms etc. They mentioned that during internal testing, the old scanner took 9 hours to scan some large set of files but the new engine did it in 40 minutes. There are also many other improvements besides scanning speed, but I decided to mention this because Dr.Web is always bashed for being slow. I did test the beta, the old scan engine took 2 hours and 40 minutes to scan my computer. The new engine scanned for 54 minutes. Someone with newer computer and multicore processor might get better results for amount of scanned data / time. To test the new engine, command line scanner (dwscancl.exe) of new beta version must be used since the old scanner gui component is still in place. This will be fixed with new scanner component.
