The Silent Mode that Norton Internet Security turns on automatically when it detects a disk burning task or a Media Center TV recording task. Norton Internet Security also turns on Quiet Mode automatically when you run a program that you included in the Quiet Mode Programs list. Norton Internet Security turns off Quiet Mode when the disk burning session or TV program recording session is complete. Norton Internet Security also turns off Quiet Mode when it stops detecting running instances of the programs that are listed in the Quiet Mode Programs list.
When you turn on the Silent Mode option, you enable Silent Mode for a specified duration. You can enable Silent Mode for a period of one hour, two hours, four hours, or six hours.
When Silent Mode is enabled, Norton Internet Security suppresses all alerts and suspends the background activities for the duration that you specify. After the specified duration, Norton Internet Security disables Silent Mode. You can also manually disable Silent Mode at any time. The activities that are suspended run after Silent Mode is disabled.
Ensure that you turn on the Silent Mode option before you perform any important task on your computer.
Full Screen Detection
When you turn on the Full Screen Detection option, Norton Internet Security automatically detects the applications that you run in full-screen mode and enables Silent Mode.
Norton Internet Security also detects Media Center Extender session as an active full-screen application and turns on Silent Mode.
When Silent Mode is enabled, Norton Internet Security suppresses most of the alerts and suspends the background activities. Only those activities that protect your computer from viruses and other security threats are run. The activities that are suspended run after you finish using an application in full-screen mode.
Hi, According to the HELP above...Actually, I do have a hard time telling them apart even after reading the help files, seems that both does the same thing accept quiet mode can be configured to adding programs.
But I think Quiet Mode....users can configure programs to stop background activtation, and when burning CDs and performing resource intensive task, quiet Mode will kick in automatically. (Pls correct me if I am wrong).
