Spybot search & Destroy very slow

I have fully updated my SS&D, but the scan takes many hours. I tried “advanced mode/settings/File set”, and by selecting 2 or 3 items each time was able to complete the scan in batches. My Hard Drive is only 15 GB. Why is it taking so long? Is there another way?

How old is your PC? Do other scans take a long time , antivirus for example? Have you run a chkdsk or defrag on the drive lately? Have you looked at TaskManager/Processes while the scan is running to see if Spybot is maxing out the CPU? Have you removed and re-installed Spybot, have you got the latest version? Are you using more than one anti-spyware scanner?
