If you are still using factmsieve.py, you can set:

...
USE_CUDA = False
GPU_NUM = 0
MSIEVE_POLY_TIME_LIMIT = 0
...

to a hard time in minutes. (0 means to use msieve's timing.) But, I would first look in the .log file to see how long msieve wants to search. It will say something like:

poly select deadline: 15264
time limit set to 4.24 CPU-hours

The 15264 is CPU-seconds
