Full system scan taking a LONG time
I installed NIS 2010 after the support for MS Live One Care was dropped (I know)
I am running it on Win XP, SP3
I have about 225 gig of used space on this machine, with very few movie or music files.
I have a networked hard drive with 900 gig of music files.
I had NIS 2010 configured to run idle scans but these would freeze my system requiring a reboot.
I turned off idle scans and scheduled a full scan to run weekly at 1:00 AM on Saturday.
It is now 6:22 and the scan is still running.
The screen shows that it has scanned 278,382 items
It has been at this number for at least 45 minutes,.
The file name at the top is C:\WINDOWS\Installer\$PatchCache$ (is this the file currently being scanned?)
Can someone advise me on what to do, i.e., stop this scan, let it run, reconfigure NIS 2010, etc.?
