I use Norton 360 version 126.96.36.199 and I would like to ask you, if there is way to disable following symbolic links when scanning computer? Thank you.

Welcome to Norton Community!!
Until or unless you are sure that the file(symbolic links) won't cause any vulnerability isues, we won't recommend you to add the file to the scan exclusion list. You can add the file to the Exclusions in Scans and Risks tab, which will avoid scanning of those links.

Thank you. I don't want to exlude real files or folders, but just following links. When I scan whole system, then some files are scanned twice - because of links.
And when I want to scan foreign HDD and on this HDD is operating system, then links in e:\users... cause Norton to scan my own PC rather then foreign HDD.
