withing Posted April 10, 2008 Share Posted April 10, 2008 I have the Windows Live OneCare, and it's always worked in the past. But! For the past week, every time I try to run a virus scan, it will run for days (and I mean days), and get to about 6% of the computer scanned, then start over. I even opened the guest account, stopped everything but Windows and the virus scan (used the task manager to make sure), took out the wireless card, and let it run overnight last night. That didn't work either - not only did the virus scan not finish, it shut down before it finished. That's not happened before. When I contacted the company, they said it was probably a third party program - not sure how that could be since nothing else was running. I've run a cleaner and cleaned out all of the extra files. I'm thinking of downloading something like Adaware to see if there's spyware involved. Other than being super slow, the computer seems to run okay. Any suggestions?
