    Hello BarabbaFurLAN,

     

    you have the possibility to change the scanner priority and search process option in the Avira Settings.

    Therefore you need to go to the Avira Settings and click on Computer Safety and then on System-Scanner.

    Now there should be an Area called "Search process". And here you can checkmark the allow stopping so that you can stop the scan whenever you want. Also here you can check on which setting the Scanner Priority is set.

    If it is set to high or medium you can try to change that to low and it should automatically use less hard disk and CPU usage but needs a little bit longer to finish the scan.

    Please feel free to contact us again if it works or if you have still any problems.

    Thank you, I've found it, it was already checked the "allow to stop", but how can I stop that? Where is the option to stop the scan when it is running?

    Hello BarabbaFurLAN,

    I am sorry that the Solution doesn't help you out in this case.

    We need some further information that we can investigate deeper in that Problem to find a solution that works for you.Is it possible that you are using Windows 8 or 8.1 System? Or which System do you use?.
    Can you also send me screenshots of the settings?.

    Best,
