    Ran my first version 4.0.467 in-depth scan on my home computer.
    Only 4 hours before the scan I had performed a clean install of Windows 7 Professional (32-bit) .

    My HD is a 300 GB Velociraptor (10,000 rpm) with only 102 GB occupied.
    My CPU is a 3.16 MHz dual core.
    Neither me nor anyone else was operating the computer during the scan.

    Question: Does the length of time for this scan seem a bit long to you?
    Prior scans using Vista and the prior NOD 4.xxx version were only taking 18 minutes and
    the HD was occupied with more data than now.


    Thanks in advance!

    It sounds like you enabled archive/sfx archive scanning which would extend the scan time. Have you tried disabling these two options or other options in the on-demand scanner setup to narrow it down?

    You were right Marcos. :thumb:
    I had both of those options enabled within my In-depth scan.
    Thank you!

    Hello,

    Another thing to consider is that the new installation of the operating system may be performing a file indexing operation in the background, which can be a disk-intensive operation.
