Title: Progreaa

How about some sort of a progress indicator to show the user how far along the process is?

Shane,
Thanks for the response.  I was referring to two tools that seem to take a long time to run.  Remove policies set by infections and repair windows safe mode. The log panel gives repair time as just a few seconds but if I click to stop it says the program is waiting for the current repair to finish.  Hope this helps.

Both of those repairs are just adding a reg file and that's it. They should go nice and fast. Do they ever finish for you?

Shane,
The Safe mode program has been running for 9 1/2 hours.

The Registry progran ran for six hours before I stopped it using task mgr.

Try running in normal mode, but skip that repair

Important Info on Reset Registry Permissions & Reset File Permissions
Both of these repairs will take a little bit to complete, depending on the speed of the system, the number of files and the number of reg keys. On a few systems it is possible for these repairs to get stuck in an infinite loop and thus never complete. This is because of symbolic links http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_link

Symbolic links are a way for a folder or reg key to point to a different location. On a normal system this isn't a problem. But if a system has a bad link that points back to a parent path then everything it hits in that link it will hit it again and again forever.

Example:
C:\Test\Test1\Test2
Test2 has a symbolic link that points back to C:\Test, and now we are stuck in an infinite loop since the repairs do all sub folders and sub keys and will keep hitting Test2.

If the repairs are running for a insane amount of time then they are most likely stuck in a loop. If that is the case stop the repairs and skip them.
