many scans stall

Recommended Posts

Ad-Aware Free (now 8.2.2) scans have started stalling. more often if I'm running other things, but often even if no other scans, or my browser (Firefox) or email (Eudora), are running. on average, about half of the scans stall, randomly.

this happens on three nearly identically configured computers also running:

Windows XP Pro sp3
Comodo Firewall 4.0.141842.828 (or 3.14.130099.587)
Eset NOD32 4.2.35.0 (or 4.0.314.0)
PC Tools Spyware Doctor 7.0.0.543

Scans will complete much faster with no other apps running. Full scan takes about 1.5 hrs on my 2.4 gHz sys w/80 gb HDD, so I scan when I know I can let it run undisturbed thru finish. It's probably some other resident protection causing it to stall - Spybot even has a popup warning that it may conflict with Ad-Aware.
