Schedule Norton scans

Norton detects when you are away from your computer and automatically runs scans to assure that your system is regularly monitored for threats. You can also schedule your own Quick Scan, Full System Scan, or Custom Scan to run on times of your choosing.

Schedule a Norton Quick Scan, Full System Scan, or Custom Scan

  1. Start Norton.

    If you see the My Norton window, next to Device Security, click Open.

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

  3. In the Scans window, under Scans and Tasks, click Custom Scan.

  4. Click Go.

  5. In the Scans window, in the Edit Scan column, click the edit icon next to Quick Scan, Full System Scan, or a Custom Scan that you previously created.

  6. In the Edit Scan window, on the Scan Schedule tab:

    • Under When do you want the scan to run, select an interval, and then select the timing options.

    • Under Run the scan, select from the options. For most users, it's best to keep all boxes checked. This assures that scans run only when you are not using your computer or when you are not using battery power, and it prevents your computer from going to sleep during a scan.

  7. Click Next.

  8. In the Scan Options window, click Save.
