I have just completed a scan, which you can see took an inordinately long time to complete.

Have you tried adding mbam.exe to the exclusions list of any of the security software you have installed?

No...not in this instance.

But, I have done the reverse, in another snapshot...added a folder to ignore in MBAM. See screenshots.

I noticed that you have a lot of icons in your System Tray. Does the scan speed improve if you exit those programs before performing the scan? Could I get a list of what you have set to run at startup so that I can do some testing?

I ran a scan earlier today, and it is a lot better.

However, the day I got the slow scan results, I was using the browser while the scan was running, so maybe that had something to do with the result. So it may have been a one-off aberration.

I enclose details of startup at boot:

P.S. I have several snapshots, two that are running the 1.50 beta and the remainder running v1.46. When rebooting to change snapshots, I update Malwarebytes, and run a quick scan before I open my browser (Opera). Also, I have SuperAntispyware on demand, which I update too, but rarely run a scan, since with my multiple snapshots, it is not practical.

P.S.S MalwareDefender is no longer active. It was a 30 day trial...I just haven't uninstalled it.

I often scan while Opera is running, so I don't think that could be the cause of the issue.

I do recommend uninstalling Malware Defender (or at least disabling it's protection), since your trial period has expired, and it's probably not doing anything productive anymore.

Process Lasso may also have something to do with the slowdowns. Does it have an exclusions list or an ignore list that you can add stuff to?
