IOS is the operating system that runs on the iPad and iPhone. I think you mean OSX. Additionally, check the installer you are trying to run: the virus scan is identifying.exe and.dll files as the issue.
Hello, Avast free antivirus has been my pc’s protection software for the last three years and since then I have been very contented. Congratulations for Avast's hard work! However, after the last program’s update (February 2,2016) as shown on screenshot ‘P1’, a problem arose: Every time my pc runs a full scan (whole computer scan), the scan never finishes. The procedure goes on up to 99% and this is the very spot where it freezes forever.
Furthermore, some full scans have already run and each of them froze on a different file. Each time I had to stop manually the procedure of scanning. I wonder: Is this my system’s problem or Avast’s bug? I think it is Avast’s, because: 1.
I have clicked on “scan history” (screenshot P2) 2. Alpha zip for mac. I have found in the list the full scans that never ended and I have clicked on a specific scan (screenshot P3). I have seen the information and it says that the full scan has been completed properly and took only 2:05:32 (screenshot P3). However, on this specific scan I have kept the time manually and I am reporting the followings: a. The procedure froze on 99% after having gone on for 2:05:32. It reached 99%, and then I kept on waiting for at least 50 min in case of finishing properly. I have counted the whole time of scan running (till my manually stopping) and it was 2:55:00 approximately.
Therefore, I decided to send you the report above. MY CREDITS: my pc’ specs: OS: windows 7 home premium fully Microsoft updated. I need to second this issue. In my case the full scan always stops at 10%. Not always the same file or even folder. But always at 10%. And always on the C: drive at this early stage.
This is version 11.1.2253 with virus version 160221-1. This is on Windows XP latest service pack. I have run Malware bytes and it scans completely. I have also run chkdsk /f /r on all of my disks without problem.
I am not sure how long this has been happening because I generally run scans in the evening and the machine is set to reboot at midnight (even if the scan isn't complete) using a scheduled task. I only noted it today as I was running the scan during the day for a change.
I should also point out that the scans were run immediately after reboot with no other programs started - save firewall, etc. I tried to run the scan in safe mode (as I often do with MalwareBytes) but found Avast simply does not work there.
