    Should not take that long - my older version takes ~ 2 hrs for 80gb. Make sure you've turned off other apps before scanning, especially real-time, resident protection (after disconnecting from internet). Also, if you have a lot of music or video files, you can set Ad-Aware to ignore files over a given size - like 5mb or 10mb - I think default is 20mb. It sounds like it's getting hung up on some files or another process is not allowing full CPU power dedicated to scanning.
