Without intending to compare wich on is the best, Why is my NIS 2012 (220.127.116.11) scan external my hard drive with a report files that has scanned less than another anti virus, for I.e with my NIS reported file scanned 36.031 files but with another anti virus reported 221.125 files ?, although i have set my NIS with the following configuration:
1. Heuristic Protection set to "Aggressive"
2. Scan Performance Profile set to "Full Scan"
Please advice me....
Tks & B/regards,

The file counts can vary not only among products, but also between Norton scans themselves. For example, if you recently ran a scan, and have not received a new virus definitions update since, then your next scan will skip all clean, unchanged files - so your file count for the second scan will be dramatically lower than for the first. There are also differences in how products count files within compressed files, etc.
