Why does a background scan take a long time?
An Ad-Aware background scan is designed not to slow down your computer during scanning.
A background scan will only use available resources while you are using other applications.
If there are a lot of applications running (less resources available), the background scan will take longer depending on your computer's capabilities.
Once you have closed other applications, scanning will run at full speed.
