    I thought I would try drweb on my laptop to test scan times.
    full scan time was 5 hours 55 minutes and 59 seconds. the laptop is dual core and has 4gb of ram.

    I am testing drweb space security 8.

    I know that full scans do not need to be run very often but it does still seem a very long scan time.

    I suppose it depends on how much data is on the hard drive.
    :D

    Yes it is. And I have Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz
    And a quick scan (except for the My Documents folder) lasts for 4-5 minutes.

    You have the horse power for scanning certainly.
    I have never tried dr web so dont know too much about the program.

    I suppose different scanners scan in different ways .
    Hope all is well in st petersburg.:cool:

    The scanner engine uses all CPU resources. The more cores the more scanning speed. And yes in St. Petersburg all is well. :)

    Dr. Web was horribly slow for me on any machine I used it on. It doesn't really matter to me though since the real-time protection didn't slow anything.
