hey everybody how long does it take your anti virus software to do a complete scan of your computer.. to check for viruses?
Really just depends on 1) the number of files and 2) the size of each of those files.
For me, it takes about an hour total for Bitdefender AV 2014 to scan two separate copies of Windows 8, as well as my backup external hard drive.

I use BitDefender and leave it on auto so I don’t know how much it takes because I never do such scans myself.
at least your not using Nortons, that crap should be banned
I’m using AVG and it takes almost an hour to complete the whole computer scan. I would say that my storage device is at 60-65%.
