Is there a way to disable the reminder to perform a scan (quick)
Posted: 10-Mar-2022 | 1:54AM · 1 Reply · Permalink
Hi All, I am a new convert to N360 and I don't want the norton icon to go yellow/red and warn me that I need to run a scan. I prefer to rely on the realtime protection and run the odd scan when it suits me without the icon going red/yellow to indicate a problem. Is there a way to disable the triggering of the alert telling me I need to run a scan?

Norton Quick Scan is considered a priority item. It runs periodically in the background when your PC is idle. If it does not get a chance to run it will alert you after a few days that the scan needs to be run. Try setting the Idle Time Out option in Norton Settings to 1 minute, so that background tasks can begin shortly after your computer becomes idle. Setting this too high can cause the tasks to never have an opportunity to run, resulting in these notifications.
