AVG - Very Slow Scan

AVG is taking about 52 minutes to trundle its way through my XP Home system and all this time every other facility is brought down a snail's pace. I know I should be grateful for AVG's free programme but is there any way of speeding it up? I resent not being able to use my computer for nearly an hour each time I run it.

Many thanks.

Does it report how many files it's scanned? Do you run anti-spyware software? How old is your PC?

What size is your Hard-Drive(s)?Can you not just set it to scan at a predetermined time such as early morning/last thing at night then leave the PC to get on with it whilst your watching TV or supping your cocoa?

have you made any progress with this or has your computer ground to a complete halt with the scanning?
