    Does anybody know an average amount of time for NOD32 to scan a PC?

    Hello.

    Which PC? Scanning speed depends on many things: number of files, size of files, CPU power, to name just a few. That said, it takes about 20 mins to scan my 70% full 50 Gb C partition.

    Cheers.

    i have read that the fastest nod32 can scan is at eiether 1.3gb or 3gb per minute.
    but it depends on the CPU,memory.
    and also how muhc data in GB.
    plus what type of data is it.
    if there are alot of compressed files it gonna take longer than if they are not compressed.
    i would just download the free trial and see how fast it can scan your pc.

    Well it's been going for 5 minutes with 2 programs running (MSN Messenger and this) plus some chats for MSN Messenger, and it's at 41%. So I would say it's going pretty fast, Don't you agree?

    I have no idea because I have no knowledge with that sort of thing, I have a limited computer savvy, and take gambles with it a lot. And now my NOD32 scanner is stuck at 41%.

    Impossible to answer. But generally it's pretty damn fast.
