    Hi,

    Is this scanning speed normal? Or is it hindered or something like slower?

    I think it's fine. My scans last usually between 1-2 minutes with cca 26,000-30,000 scanned files.

    Scan speed is perfectly in line with what this 2.2Ghz processer laptop achieves i.e. ~55-70 seconds, but for approx 40,000 files. I believe that's fine :) :thumb:

    In-line with my system also. Mine scans more files as I do a lot of beta testing which gives me a higher number than normal of monitored files.

    If it gets longer than 3-5 minutes I would be surprised.

    They are supposed to have fixed that "it builds up a cache" issue that Prevx 3.0 had where the only fix to get your scan time back to normal was reinstalling it.

    Complaining aside, Prevx slowly creeped up over years of use and the longest I've waited was 10 minutes for a deep scan, which is again replacing the competitor's 30 min to 2 hour full scan, so still it's not bad.

    My last scan was 42 seconds for over 31,000 files. This scan time figure is known to go up and down, but if it creeps past 5 minutes then have a word with Support.

    My other 2 newer computers Win XP & Win 7 average 45 sec to 1 minute for scan. :thumb:
