I've noticed since the update to the new UI, the time for a full scan on my system has increased from about 15 mins to about 90 mins!
Anyone else noticed this? It certainly isn't progress.......
Also, my VirusScan version is 20.2 build 20.2.155 dated 19/04/2017 (the engine version is bang up to date - 3066.0). There have been several updates to other components since then, so can anyone confirm this is the lastest version? I'm running McAfee Internet Security version 16.0.2
Latest version that is correct. Scan times being investigated but 15 minutes for a full scan that is short unless you do not have much installed? A first install after an Virusscan update can take longer the subsequent scans should be shorter but in some cases are not. that is what the techs are looking into.
I see the same (previous software version 20.1.159). I have terabyte HDD's and multiple OS's which in turn have their own hidden recovery partitions so in my case a full scan takes absolutely ages.
I attach some pics and a diary of my observations...thus far.
My drives (not including the hidden Recovery ones):
MVS version (as an ex-Moderator here I get a very long trial subscription):
Here's a diary I made in Notepad......
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 fully updated, x64, MSC 16.1.160. fully updated.
MVT produces BSOD at whatever the stage is after updating has completed. But I realise that's a subject for another thread.
I ran my 1st Full Scan in about a year having avoided all but Quick Scans. It took over 3 hours just to scan my C: drive and I have 10 drives more to go....it looks like it'll last a week at the rate it's going. It read "1%" still after 2.5 hours and 3 complete drive scans.
On my O drive it finally jumped to 51%.
It's now at 84% and stuck on yet another Microsoft help file.
It seems that PDF's, Excel. Word and .reg files are extremely fascinating to MVS as it lingers on them for an inordinate amount of time.
OK it finally ended, 4.5 hours after commencement at 212,697 files.
Hopefully future Full Scans will be faster, if what we are told is true.
