<<...im lookinh at a check of my files in the blackand white screen...>>

What makes you think that SAS runs in DOS...or that it's checking anything?

How long does this "check" last?

IME, SAS only reboots when it has to be remove files which could not be removed without a reboot. That's normal. And...you should delete files mainatained in the SAS quarantine after any scan...they serve no purpose. If any file must be restored, there are ways that don't rely on the quarantined items.
