well, most utilities for scanning HDD take a LONG time to run, seen them run for upto 3 hours or so... as long as you can boot to the disk (dont run in windows, create a boot disk and run it from that) and if it seems to hang while TESTING and not loading the program, it maybe normal. Let it run for a few hours and check its progress. May take a very long time depending on the size of the HDD.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
