Schedule a Quick Scan

Quick Scan scans the important locations of your computer that the viruses and other security threats often target. When you perform a Quick Scan, Norton scans only the running processes and the loaded programs. Quick Scan takes less time to scan than a Full System Scan because this scan does not scan your entire computer.

Norton lets you schedule a Quick Scan. You can schedule a Quick Scan in the Scans window.

Schedule 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 Custom Scan.

  3. Click Go.

  4. In the Scans window, in the Edit Scan column, click the edit icon next to Quick Scan.

  5. In the Edit Scan window, under When do you want the scan to run?, set the frequency and time at which you want the scan to run.

    Most of the frequency options include the additional options that you can use to refine the schedule. Set the additional options as required.

  6. Click Next.

  7. In the Scan Options tab, click Save.
