HouseCall is staying on "Listing autorun entries" for 15+ minutes

I've downloaded Trend Micro HouseCall on a fresh computer without any other antivirus software except for native Windows Defender.

And it was running for 15+ minutes on 3% progress with status "Listing autorun entries".

Fortunately around 17th minute it moved to next stage and now is scanning files on local disk.

Frankly speaking, when I started writing this topic I initially rated it as a "problem" but when HouseCall finally moved further I switched to a "question". Still this is a disturbing sign to see how this tool is examining autorun entries for 15 minutes.

So, is that an expected behavior?
