Microsoft Safety Scanner has been running more than   47:14:36 hours.  It has scanned more than 1,265,500 files and has found more than 771 infected files.  It is only partially complete, I would say less than 1/3 complete.  Why is this taking so long.  Also, the number of threats appears to  be very high.

Any help would be appreciated.
