Thread: Mcafee Virus Scan

  1. #1
    why does it take the virus scanner so long? im runnign a scan right now, and its been going for at least an hour and its still not done. i dont think i have that many files. sometimes it will just get stuck on a file for liek 5 minutes. is something wrong? it also seems to be checking the same files over and over again

    Do you have a lot of files on your computer? Have you defragged it recently?

    what exactly does defragging do?

    Defragmenter, as the name implies, defragments your disks. Your disks get fragmented when you add and delete files, because information that should be grouped together gets split up. When you defragment your disk, all of this information gets grouped back together

    The problem you said could be a result of that. Also scan your disk before defragmenting.

    scan it?
    as in virus scan?

    so, there is no danger in defragmenting your computer? would defragmenting make my computer faster? could it also possibly help other programs run smoother?

    Scan as in scandisk or checkdisk. Not defragging will make your PC fail to operate in less than a year with average use.

    I suggest you do a google search on these subjects. There is too much info available there to try and repeatedly duplicate it all here. It&#39;s also something you must learn if you want to keep your computer running the best it can run.
