Full scan going QUICK

Hi, I recently updated my McAfee Virus Scan product on Oct. 22 2020, and now my full scans take like 3 minutes, scanning 248000, and the scan ends at 66% and then the green check mark pops up saying that my system is clean. Just wondering if it is like this with anyone else.

Hi @NateDeGreat 

McAfee comes with LAM version (Light weight Antimalware).McAfee will scan all the files in your PC but it will check for any files which are replaced or modified and as per design it will show the scan progress and results. 

Let us know what is the version of McAfee installed on the device.
