What scan do you perform the smart system scan? it can seem to lock up but it does keep going you just have to give it time.

i use custom scan and have not had any probs in the past - think i will do a system restore to see if that sorts the prob

Hi aceguy

I have had the same problem, would not even close off, i had to use the task manager, even that was a pain, in the end i just start in safe mode by tapping F8 on start up and scan in that and it works fine. Hope this is of use.
