    Hi, my virus scan takes about 20 mins to do. Is there any reason for not staying online and viewing web pages as it does the scan?

    I do not believe running a full system scan will be interrupted or degraded by surfing or working in other applications. It will however be significatly slowed down do to processor usage. If you find it necessary to do other functions during the scan than expect slow performance. I always try to allow the scan to run uninhibited to completion when I can.
