Can someone help me with this? When I scan with Mcafee VirusScan, it always gets stuck on this file that I downloaded. It seems to stay scanning that file forever and never moves on. I can't cancel the scan when it reaches this point so I have to resort to using task manager to force end the task. Does anyone know why this happens and how to prevent it?

Maybe the file is corrupted.
Can you download another copy?
How big is the file?
What kind of file is it?
Do you need this file... if not delete it.

The file is a 700 mb rar file and it is not corrupted. I think it was just taking long because it is a large compressed file. Thanks
