Smart Scan

Question

Lately when I run a Smart Scan instead of taking a few minutes it is taking 2 to 3 hours to complete the Smart Scan. I Have not changed any (to my knowledge) settings on my computer. Use Win XP w SP3. I run the Ad-Aware scan everyday. The 2 or 3 hours to run the scan is keeping me from running other programs. how do I have Smart Scan return to normal scan time?

Hello there SteveszJWV1,

I'm sorry your smart scan is taking longer than it previously done for you, let me try my best to offer some steps that may be causing this.

1. Fragmented hard-drive - Preform a disk defrag

2. Unnecessary junk files - Preform a disk clean up

try those steps first and post back, i know they're very basic procedures but its sometimes those lil things that cause the trouble :rolleyes:
