Not really. While the tech had the system , he ran a full scan and it went as it should and completed in just under 2 hours.  No cause was noted. When I try another full scan on 10/30 , will see if it is super slow still or normal.

As a test , I ran a full scan tonight. No changes to the system. It worked as it should. Took approx. 2.5 hours which is more like it used to. Nothing like the last few where it was still going at 75% after 5 hours. I have a hunch that a VS update in the last 6 weeks or so solved it.
