(Anti) Virus Scan Taking Too Long
I decided aboiut a week ago to do a full scan on my computer; it's an iMac running OS 10.8.4 and Norton Antivirus v 11.1.2. The dialog box came up with the progress bar indicating that there were apporoximately 5, 700, 000 items to scan so I expected it to take a while so just let it run overnight. The next day I checked the progress and was only about a 1/3 complete.....the progress bar came to it's visual conclusion in about 4 days, but the scan has continued and has NOT completed. We are now up to around 12, 500, 000 items and it's still running a week later. This seems a bit excessive to me......does anyone have a suggestion as to what's up?
