Background Scan Bringing System to a Halt
Just installed Norton v2.0 on Vista 32-bit.
Norton – in its infinite wisdom - has decided to perform a background scan for viruses and spyware of 2 TB of data during the middle of the work day without any approval from me, which is bringing my Quad Core with 4 GB of RAM and multiple RAID drives to a halt because of the disk I/O.
I need to find the following:
1. A way to temporarily or permanently stop the current scan immediately so that I can actually perform some development work.
2. Identify a way to control the schedule of the scan (which I have gone through the simple UI settings for Task Scheduling, and it was set to Sunday at Midnight, weekly and not Monday at 10 AM).
3. Identify a way to actual view the progress of the background scan (e.g. 50% down, working on file xyz).
4. Identify a way to limit the I/O that is used by the background scan (e.g. maximum number of threads or maximum number of files open at a time).
If I can’t control the application and how it runs, I don’t think it will be any use to me. Is there a refund process?
