It's always best to start your own thread not tag onto someone else's so moved this.
Scanning does slow things down as it is pretty resource hungry. Without knowing your system, service pack and how much RAM and free HD space it's difficult to judge, however.
You can turn off the auto-scan and do it manually.
Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center
Click Advance Menu (bottom leftish)
Click Configure (left)
Click Computer & Files (top left)
Click Advanced (right)
Click Scheduled Scan (left)
Alter settings at the right.
While in Advanced there are other settings that can be adjusted as you wish.
Sorry, I'm new at posting on your site :(
I'm trying your suggestion as we chat, I'll let you know if it works.
No problem, good luck Denise.
OK, it worked and now I don't have to be annoyed with random scans slowing down my computer!:o:o:) Thank you again
Glad to help.
