At the moment i have bullguard version 7 installed but i seem to have no control over when it scans. While it scans which normaly takes 1 hour the pc may as well be switched off as it runs so slow.Is there anything i can do to alter this. How good is bullguard compared to other software. I am even considering changing anti virus software, if so which is best and how much. Thanks.

Can't the scanning schedule be edited?

You may be looking at the problem in the wrong way. The length of time taken is a factor of the size of your HDDs and the number of Files on them.

How much RAM has your PC got and what OS is it running?

If you have less that 512MB RAM. That is the problem. Not your AV.

I currently use Bullguard v7. Scheduling can be set to daily/weekly/monthly as per brundles post.
When I do a full scan it takes a little over an hour but I can continue using my PC.
A quick scan takes only 2-3 minutes.
I have 1024MB RAM.
I have found the support from Bullguard excellent especially their live chat.
