AVG scan findings adware.RogueSuspect

This discussion thread has 3 messages.

I have been using avg to scan my computer. As of late, I am finding my scans take very long to complete, up to four hours. Avg found what is known as the ADWARE.ROGUESUSPECT. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get rid of this finding? I have clicked remove all threats, but soon i do another scan it once again finds that same adware.Rogue.Suspect. If you have any suggestions please post. Also, does anyone have any idea why my scans are taking so long? takes four hours to complete a scan. i also find that while scanning, considering i have a duo processor, my computer lags during the scan. thank you for all suggestions.
