Maybe I’m just in over my head here, but anyway… this is the situation:
After making a fresh install of XP I decided to try an alternative AV prog than my “standard” Symantec. A Full System Scan seemed like a good idea, emphasis on the past tense. After about 2 hours, 2.280 files are scanned. If I extrapolate thet over all my drives it will literally be weeks before it’s done.
So the question is: What am I doing wrong here? The Symantec full scan on the exact same config takes about 2 hours to complete. Now I’m not even halfway through disk 1
I had the same problem. CAVS is the absolute slowest scanning AV solution I have ever seen. It takes upwards of 10 hours to scan my system, when I’m used to seeing around an hour using any of the three on demand scanners I have at my disposal. (and yes, only one of them is set to actively scan my system. The others are just for a second opinion)
Yes, the DB did it’s thing. I had the incremental option checked, I even sent however many gigabytes of data from files it found that it was unaware of to Comodo for inspection and addition to the safelist.
I ended up having to uninstall the software because that is just an unreasonable amount of time for a scan of only 23GB of data, especially when the software brags about faster scans than ever.

yeiazel is correct, there has to be some other process that is interfering with CAVS to cause this problem. Perhaps if you could post a screenshot listing your running processes whilst CAVS is scanning we may be able to figure out what is happening.
