Re: On Demand scan makes system very slow

An On Demand Scan will almost always make a system slow. Setting the (Windows) priority control to low does not guarantee great system performance during a full scan. Unless your system is crashing I have never worked a case where a full scan was not operating as designed. Make sure you follow best practices for full scans.
