Using a Vanilla Win XP (SP-2), Avast anti-virus, CCleaner, CWshredder, no problems, good connections. (Broadband.) I like Spybot, but the 'scans' take forever. At least 1 hour or more. (And if my screensaver kicks in, it seems to STOP.!) I have tried setting the screen saver to a higher time, but it still takes a LOONNGG time. Should I be setting up different parameters in 'expert' mode, rather than the standard scan.?? I have 512 Meg Ram., no computer web surfing, minimal services running in background.? Is this normal? Any suggestions to speed up..(No, I cannot add more RAM..) Thanks.
