If you are running a SSD with a faster processor and high ram than your scans will be alot faster than an older Mac running a mechanical drive and older ram/processor.

@Laralat wrote:Hi Sherry - Thank you for your response!I did select the reset (no changes were made from last screen shot) and allowed my system to run.As you can see, the scan went for 15h 33m 33s. Appears that scan doesn't occur while in sleep mode. Thoughts??? TIA!
