Run a Quick Scan

A Quick Scan helps you to scan the possible virus-infected areas of a computer that the viruses and other security risks often targets. Because this scan does not scan your entire computer, it takes less time to run than a Full System Scan.

During idle time, your Norton service runs a Quick Scan when there is a definition update.

Run a Quick Scan

  1. In the Norton main window, double-click Security, and then click Scans.

  2. In the Scans window, under Scans and Tasks, click Quick Scan.

  3. Click Go.

  4. On the Results Summary window, do one of the following:

    • If no items require attention, click Finish.

    • If there are items require attention, review the risks in the Threats Detected window.
