Any anti virus has real time protection and is always scanning files. You can always right click on your flash drive and select scan with Norton.
Real Time Protection = NIS 2009 + NATBehavior Analysis = ThreatfireOn Demand = MBAM

Not true. Norton or any other av will catch any viruses as they try to run. If there is a virus Norton will catch it. May I ask why your putting unknown programs that may contain a virus on your USB drive.Message Edited by Dieselman743 on 10-17-2008 04:09 AM

To clarify, he thinks that it would be safer if Norton did a quick scan on the removable drive and blocked all incoming/outgoing traffic until the threat was disinfected. 

No, I disagree. Norton is always scanning executed programs and files. If there is a threat, it will be blocked before being executed. 

It like catching a ball before it hits your face. Sure, you can go and decapitate the pitcher....

Any AV this be able to in 100%
My post apply to protection previous to autorun worm
