Scan freezes during "scanning additional items" - doesn't complete scanincomplete scan scan freezes
Posted 04 February 2013 - 12:35 AM
It freezes during "scanning additional items" and doesn't complete the scan (not responding). Note that up to that point, it reports zero detections. No log gets generated and it just stays unresponsive. It happens on Quick and Full Scans. I uninstalled it using the Control Panel and then reinstalled it. The same thing continued to happen.
What do I do now? I've always used AVG free with MalwareBytes Free with no problems. I'm not the most tech savvy person but hopefully would be able to follow instructions if they were detailed. I'm running Windows 7.
