Importing database hanging

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I’m trying to import the site locally from the zip file. The zip was previously exported from my Local site.
The site imports all the content but is hanging when importing the db. The first go I left it for about 2 hours but surely it should have completed with that time? The weird thing is looking at disk usage during the db import I can see there is activity. The db unzippped is 350mb so it is fairly large. So I suppose I’d like to know what the average time for db import of this size would be?

I’ve now followed this guide to use shell to import the db: Import/Export a WordPress Site - Local. The problem now is that it’s hanging on Downloads wordpress! I already opened Local in adminstrator mode and turned off anti virus software. Not sure what’s going on here?
