In my case, it took around 10 minutes. And after the scan, it created a log file automatically. You can see the above screenshot to know what system areas it scanned to generate the log file. Log file opened automatically when scan finishes. I don’t think you may fine it easy to understand the log file. Because it is too complicated and contains technical information. You can also find the same log in the tool.
