we're infected with Malware Defense and running bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe the screen showing is autoscan and it states it might take 10 minutes or more to run the scan; the scan/screen has been on for 2+ hours, I'm wondering if it's still scanning, anybody heard of a scan running this long??

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

No one should be using ComboFix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

Depending on how badly your system is infected, ComboFix may take longer to complete its routine than it normally does. However, there are circumstances ComboFix will hang or stall at various stages due to malware interference, failure to disable any other real-time protection tools and CD Emulators (Daemon Tools, Alchohol 120%, Astroburn, AnyDVD) so that it does not complete successfully. While that is not normal behaviour, it is not unusual. In such cases, it is helpful to know at what stage CF stalled. If you don't know and it still appears to be struck, frozen or failed to reboot, then try rebooting the computer manually.
