Full Scan running for over 18 Hours

Options


I am new to Bitdefender and downloaded the software yesterday. I am running the first full scan on my son's machine and it has been running for over 18 hours and is on 48%. Should I let it run or stop and start again? It seems a very long time even for a first scan.

  • In case anyone looks for this in the future.


    4,612,184 files took 20 hours 23 mins to full scan first time.

    Welcome to the Bitdefender Forums.


    Depending on the power of your computer or notepad, it can take even days to do a full system scan the first time.  Scan times are limited by HDD/SSD read speed, available RAM, CPU, bus speed, etc.  I once had a notepad here for configuration and malware remediation that took 36 hours to complete a system scan.


    If you have a high-powered computer, then that scan time seems excessively long, and might indicate possible HDD/SSD issues.


    I hope this helps.  Have a great day.


    Regards,

     Have any of them ever changed any setting in the program.... Every 1 setting you want to change it ask you for a password.... seriously is asking a password once not enough to change every setting in the program.  Why do the program have to be so annoying asking for a password every god dame setting you changed.  Every time you change a function after entering a password it make a beep sound....? does that mean it failed or was it successful.  Do you know this kind of thing, an interface designer should have pick it up.... I mean that what they are paid to do.  If there was one notification pop up for a critical event i would not have wasted 3 hour of my time, thinking it was something else.   Seriously unacceptable.
