Quiet mode and silent mode
I understand how to stop and start these features, but I cannot find information on exactly what these modes do? Specifically: There are times when I want all background tasks to totally stop running (and use zero CPU time and disk resources). For example: When I am copying very large files (like 100 GB - system drive images, etc.) or when I run a full checkdisk on a large drive (2 TB) - that can take several hours. Does silent / quiet mode stop the Norton background tasks, or do they still run in the background silently, without popup windows that inform the user of their actions. I also have difficulty understanding the exact difference between quiet mode and silent mode. Your website explains in detail how to invoke silent and quiet mode, but it can really explain the EXACT nature of these features a little better for the sake of slow brains, like mine :-)
Thanks for your help.
