    Hi

    I have run a scan with blackspear settings on my old pc.

    1 hour 30minutes.

    specs= pentuim 3 processer
    256mb ram
    40gb hard drive 30gb used.
    the file system is fat32
    the drive hasnt been defragged in ages so if i did that the scan time should improve.
    plus it has tons of crap on it lol

    Well, the scanning time depends on many aspects: the number of files scanned, your PC specs, type of files being scanned (runtime packed or not, etc) but format your drive and then scan it again. I guess NOD will scan it in no time. :D

    My PC takes over 2 hours for a full scan but that is very very fast...

    As pykko said, there are many factors that impact on scanning time.
    If you're running XP with SP2 on 256MB RAM the your PC is probably dipping into the swapfile all the time. That definately makes for a significantly longer time, and not just for scans but anything continuous....

    And as far as computing power goes there's a huge difference between the p3 and p4, far more than just the multiple of GHz faster

    Cheers :)
