Scheduled Scan slows PC's

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm sorry if this topic has been raised before, I did a search, but nothing came up.

 

We have Kaspersky Admin Kit and KAV 6.0.4.1424 installed on the clients. quite a few clients slow down quite a lot when a full scan is taking place ( I schedule once a week )

 

Some PC's finish the scan in an hour ( which is acceptable ) but some take 4 - 5 hours, these PC's are often really slow during the scan, some of these PC's are virtually the same spec etc as the ones that take 1 hr.

 

So my question really is, what can I check that might be causing such a difference in scan times? and what might be slowing the PC's down?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Mick.

I had this issue and a number of people complaining as well. What I did was for the Group Scan Task under properties I checked the box showing under Run Mode "Pause scheduled scan when screesaver is inactive or computer is unlocked" ( Seems like a fancy option for 'scan during idle time'). At first I had concern that I would get many clients showing as not scanned in a long time but I don't get that many more than I used to get without the option checked. Since clicking this option I no longer get users complaining.

Its also possible that the PCs that take longer have more content requiring scanning stored on them, and that they could also be scanning a lot of archives (zip and rar files for example) if you have archive scanning enabled.

 

It could also be they have a lot of programs running, or the computers could require a reboot and possibly maintenance (e.g. temp file cleanup).
