JRT seems to be taking a very long time to complete. Moreover, it seems to stall at a specific stage during its processing. Is this an error, or is the program simply requiring a long time to complete? Does my laptop have an infection?
I have run JRT several instances before over the past few months. Each time, JRT only took about ten minutes to complete. Today, I decided to run JRT because I run my other anti-virus, anti-malware, etc. programs weekly. So, when I opened JRT today, it prompted me to update to the latest version. I delete the old/current version and downloaded the new one. Subsequently, I turned off MSE real-time protection, then opened and clicked to run JRT. After doing so, JRT proceeds and advances after the first several steps, but then it seems to stall at "Checking Processes." The first time I tried to run it today, it was taking well over half an hour. So, I exited out and attempted to delete, reinstall, and rerun it. My laptop is currently running JRT. It is still taking forever to advance past "Checking Processes."
Over the past few days, I have run MBAM, MBAR, MSE, AdwCleaner, and SAS. They have found nothing. So, I find it strange that JRT is taking atypically longer to complete when it has only required ten minutes or so in the past and that my other anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware programs have found no infections lately.
Can someone please shed some light on this? Am I just not waiting long enough for JRT to complete?
I am currently using someone else's laptop because JRT is running on my laptop. It's been at least half an hour since it started.
