  • Hello,


    Depends on amount of files, PC speed and how many external drives. But, yea it does take a while. I will not have a chance for a bit to test OC 2 Tune-up. I have to rebuild my machine (Not for OneCare).

  • I've ran a few test kind of wild resaults I filled a folder full of zip files of system files program files copied a cd into a zip WLOC 2.0 shows a real issue with compressed Zipped files and Cabs scanning for viruses and spyware scan


    I did the same thing with a folder just full of odds and end files not compressed or hidden WLOC Virus & Spyware scan ripped thru 150 files in seconds but the above was a nightmire It sat on a zip file for 4hrs scanning


    Another Issue was the Defrag and disc clean up are currently showing now Known issues with running slow and errors.

  • OC seems to handle CAB's badly, It takes 100% CPU for a long time to work through even one sub folders for eg. MSOCache of MS Office 2007. Those CAB files are only about 30MB each yet it's taking at least 5 minutes on my P4 Northwood 2.66GHz to get thorugh one of them.

  • Hello,


    Do you two mind trying scanning again afte installing a zip manager and setting it as default for .zip and .cab like www.7zip.com or Winzip or Izrc? Does it run faster?

  • Just a quick test so accuracy is debatable


    Using "Scan for viruses" on

    C:\MSOCache\All Users\{90120000-00A1-0404-0000-0000000FF1CE}-C and

    C:\MSOCache\All Users\{90120000-001A-0404-0000-0000000FF1CE}-C

    Vista default: 3:17min

    WinRAR: 3:15min

    7-zip: 3:11min

  • That's not too much of a difference, unfortunately. It seems that scanning compressed files still takes too long. :-(
