Scan Speeds for 2011/2012 AntiVirus Software


Note: The scanning speeds shown below are for default settings for each antivirus program. Since the default settings for each program are quite different, the testing below doesn't necessarily indicate which antivirus program has the fastest virus scanner. However, since most users don't alter the default settings, it's useful to see how fast each program is in default mode.

Scan speeds were found for the first/initial scan after installation (a 1.0 GB set of 3000 files was scanned - which included Windows system files, media files, and other files commonly found on a computer system). Subsequent scans are generally faster than the initial scan speeds shown below. (See our Antivirus Performance Tests where we also tested Subsequent Scan Speeds.)
