Does it look like the hard drive is being highly utilized or what's the CPU utilization?  Our company went with SEP from SAV and I totally hate the scheduled scans.  My computer becomes completely useless during the scheduled scan.  When I investigated, the hard drive was being highly utilized.  Used Sysinternals' file monitor.
More than likley rtvscan.exe is using upwards of 50% of the CPU.......SEP is an app that is very heavy on resources.

Are you doing the scans after hours?

Honestly anything below 11.0.4 causes problems.
