C drive containing Windows 8.1 scanned in less than 4 minutes ?

I did manual scan of C drive which has Windows 8.1 pro installed. F secure scanned 34254 files in less than 4 mintues.

 

Is it some kind of bug or some new technology has been implemented by F secure IS 2014.

Error information

 

"Cannot open file" error occurred:

The "Cannot open file" error message means that the scanner was unable to open a file and that this file was not scanned. You can normally ignore this error message as there are many reasons for this message that do not imply a security threat, including:

  • The file was a system file. System files are protected by the operation system by design. You can ignore this message in this case.
  • You do not have permission to read the file. To scan the file, log in with a user account with sufficient permissions (for example the computer's administrator account) and rescan.
  • The file was in use by an application when the scan was performed. To scan this file, close all applications and rescan.

This sounds pretty much normal behavior. I suppose you have the Windows 8.1 installed onto a SSD drive?

Ah, the 48K with rubber keys, that brings up great memories Smiley Very Happy  I especially remember the odd game Highway Encounter where you + your extra lives played simultaneously, they just followed you if nothing wasn't in the way, so you could end up loosing all at the same time. Haven't seen that in any other game I think. Nostalgia at its best!

The first computer game I played was Lemmings, on what I think was an Amiga machine. I guess that must have been early 90s? I didn't get my own computer until 1999, and that was a second hand one from a friend.
