How long should a scan take?

I have used Qualys browser check for a year or so but I am not a security expert, not even a computer nerd, just a home user wanting a secure computing environment.  Using Mac OS X Mavericks.

 

I'm scanning now and it has been going for 20 minutes. I assume this is not normal? What could be wrong?

 

Is the Qualys free scan process too sophisticated for a basic user?


It always tells me I should turn on Safari's firewall. I have a firewall in Intego's NetBarrier. Is that as good as Safari's firewall in effectiveness? I understand I should not have 2 firewalls active?

 

It's still scanning, 25 minutes.

 

Thanks.
