NIS - Full System Scans (Idle) bogging system down?

Another question:

I noticed that my system was extremely slow in running up from an idle state of 2 hours.

Full System Scans have been turned off in Settings, when 2012 was installed.

Has anyone else experienced a sigificant slowdown when emerging from an Idle state?

Never had this issue with NIS 2011.

Many thanks.

Re: NIS - Full System Scans (Idle) bogging system down?

Hi Atomic_Blast,

I have experienced the same problem. For instance, when attempting to activate the PC (12 hours ago) by just moving the mouse, following several hours of non-use, the PC would not respond. The monitor remained black (no video activity). I had to hard reboot the PC to get it up and running again. And, my system should be able to handle the demands of NIS 2012...which is sluggish compared to NIS 2011.

OS: W7, 64-bit Professional, SP1 (fully updated); Intel Core i7 x 980 @ 3.33 GHz, 6-core, 9G RAM, 1G ATI Radeon HD5570 Video Card, 1 TB HD, RAID 1...blah, blah, blah.

In both NIS 2011 & NIS 2012, Smart Definitions were/are OFF (meaning NIS operates with an exhaustive/comprehensive Definition list). An NIS 2011 Quick Scan would take :17 to :20 seconds to scan 4,000+ files. An NIS 2012 Quick Scan just took 6 minutes & :34 seconds to scan 9,947 files.

I understand that NIS 2012 Quick Scan may scan at least twice as many files and digs deeper than NIS 2011 did. But, I am concerned that NIS is going backwards when a "light/small footprint" is what is needed.

Is there an elephant in the room with NIS 2012?

Hi 1mcrtd:

Thanks for your response.

Even though (on this box) I am using XP, SP3, the symptoms are quite similar.

We need more opinions.
