Avast scans are really slow

I'm finding Avast scans to be glacially slow. After 60 hours it still has not completed a scan of my 3.57 TB of data. Scanning all the data shares from my PC with Windows Defender surpasses Avast in 16 minutes compared to the 60+ hour Avast has been running. All this time and the drives can't spin down or the system sleep. Plus if I restart while a scan is in progress I'm left with a zombie entry that can't be stopped or removed. Avast doesn't seem use-able to me.

Any one using another anti-virus or getting this one to perform with reasonable speed?

Avast is the good perform antivirus software. But it's true, that the software is very slow for scanning. If the avast team are don't care of this problem, this software getting negative review from the customer.
