    I'm running ESET 4.2.71.2 on about 40 clients.
    Weekly smart scan is configured to run on Monday noon. The problem that on many clients is taking 4-6 hours for scan to complete. Users' performance is affected.
    Any tips? I throught about running scan on low priority, but I don't see such option in ESET policy.

    TIA,
    Vitaly

    Perhaps disabling archives / sfx archives would reduce the scan time. However, as long as you keep real-time protection enabled and default startup scan tasks scheduled, there's not much sense in running additional disk scans.
