its doing a full scan, the hd is a 200 Gb and its over half way full.

Like Snowblind said, its all about common sense.

And stampede, I was just wondering because such a difference in time frames for scan time, 1 hour to 3 mins is quite drastic. I just said that you reformatted your pc because it seems like there wouldnt be many files on the pc if the scan only took 3 mins. Either that or its not scanning the whole HDD.

This is very interesting. I wonder how it will work and why it hasn't been done before. I mean it is obvious that antivirus programs are a big money maker but if no one trusts them then.....

i use comodo internet security and zonalarm forcefield , i paid $30 for zonealarm forcefield it a protection program warning you of dangerous sites blocks intrusion atempts and is a must have for when shopping online . comodo internet security is ok it comes with a heap of protection with a thing called safe surf and firewall anti virus and anti spyware , and comodo is all free , sometimes its a real pain in the butt when you first set up as it learns your pc but then its okay, i run spybot , and ad aware too .

But if you want the ultimate internet secrurity then zonealarm internet security suite is the best , they have differant versions of it and i think there is one at the top of their range called either expert or pro that gets rid of that new worm virus , zonealarm suite costs around $100 and goes for one year
