Full scan taking too long

12 posts in this topic

Having just updated to KIS12 - I performed a full scan - this took 2-3 hours and I could surf the internet whilst it was scanning.

 

In the past I could do a full scan on KIS11 and happily surf away with a slight loss of speed

 

Now it seems I cannot surf at all - is this normal?

Also, your event log is flooded with disk errors. You should run the chkdsk utility.

 

Double click My Computer, right-click the disk you want to check, > Properties > Tools > Error Checking > Check Now > Check Both Boxes > Start. You will probably get a message saying the volume is currently in use and asking you if you want to run chkdsk on the next startup. Type y and press ENTER. Restart your computer.

 

You can review the results by right-clicking My Computer > Manage > Event Viewer > Application. Look in the Source column for WINLOGIN. Double-click to read results.

Backup and replace D drive is my suggestion. Sounds like it's on the way out.

Is the scan hanging on one specific object ?
