Hi, The online "thorough" scan used to take 2-3 minutes before, when I had FF2 & XP SP2. Now with FF3 & XP SP3, even after 30mins it wasn't done yet. All the while my AV's realtime guard was disabled. I tried with FF3 safe mode & IE7 too, and the scans went past 10mins (I stopped the scans). But with Opera 9.51, the same "thorough" scan finished at 2min 38sec - that's abt the same as last time. Can someone verify if it's taking longer now on ur system? Or maybe a quirk just on my system? THANKS.
