Scan hangs up at 66%

Virus Scan hangs up at 66% It hangs up on the file Windows\Installer\$P..._11D3_A536_0090278A1BB8.
I've tried uninstalling Security Center, and reinstalling. Still hangs up. Let it run about 18 hours... hung at 66% for at least 8 hours (I was asleep before that).
I have Windows Vista home premium sp1 32 bit. 2 GB ram.
IE 8 and Firefox 3.0.12 are installed. Thanks!

RE: Scan hangs up at 66%

I am having a problem very similar to that. It only does it on full scan also, when I perform a quick scan it doesn't happen. It is on a Windows/Installer...... file. But mine hangs up at 50%, definitely not for 8+ hours... it will hang up for maybe 20 mins? Then my computer will shut down on its own. It has been doing this for a few weeks now.
