Why would Avast full scan hang?

Specs: Windows 7
Avast quick scan works fine, but full scan gets to the same spot (81%) and slows down every time. It has actually made it to 83% running overnight.

Ran MBAM and found nothing. AdwCleaner (Malwarebytes version) found one possibly unwanted program and removed.

I think I figured it out:

There are multiple drives attached to this computer, some with bootable volumes. Avast's default is to "Scan all Drives" as well as removable media. I changed it to just scan the System Drive. Got through the whole scan in 20 minutes or so.
