    Recently I download a RAR file with a number of Windows 7 Hotfixes. The download got stuck at 99% in IE8

    After 6min later completed it 100% (which was once it had been scanned with ESS Automatically)

    Wondering why ESS is so slow at scanning Microsoft Update .msu files. Give it a TRY and you will see yourself

    I assume the msu files are reasonably large so it takes time to extract them and scan each file inside. Setting a size limit for archives would probably help, but it's safer to use default settings with no limits.
