I haven't found this exact problem in the Forums (mind you, not for lack of searching). Sorry if this is a repeated question.
My scans refuse to conclude and continue perpetually (looks like they would forever) until I manually end them (before the Scan is complete).
In "Full Scan" mode, the programme seems to be working fine... found 25 cases of "infections"... then progresses to a point where it is "Scanning Conditional Files" - continuously. I have left it in this mode for over seven hours (yes, really) before finally giving up - although I am sure that it would have continued on happily for days if given the opportunity.
Hoping to bypasss this problem, I attempted to run a "Smart Scan". Here it stalls during the "Scanning Registry (Preparing GUID Scanning)" phase (which, to make matters more confusing, it had completed successfully in "Full Scan" mode). Again... doesn't crash or freeze - just keeps scanning forever with no end in sight.
On an unrelated note (and I realise that the fact that I am using the Free Version of the Software doesn't lend much clout to my suggestion, but I'll think aloud here anyway) -
It would be nice if there were Progress Bars (as in previous versions), so that you could tell whether certain functions are still working and monitor their progress (such as during "Download Updates") or if your computer has just "lost the trail".
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
