Full system scan with windows 10

Most of the time when I run Full System Scan with windows 10 the total items scanned usually stops at about 9000 items and then hangs up and will run all night and not advance! 

Also when I run Power eraser and I have to enter password after boot, the power eraser usually does not continue!



Re: Full system scan with windows 10

Hi there,

1. Please change your username ASAP: please keep your email address private always.

2. You may read this thread when it comes to your issue re "Full System Scan... stops[ped] at about 9000 items":

  • disabling Fast Startup in your Win10;
  • disabling "Compressed File Scan" in your Norton Security (?);
  • uninstalling any other 3rd-party security program like avast using their official removal tool

3. Again, run Norton Power Eraser (NPE) with caution!

4. Sorry if I didn't understand you: try these steps to remove your Windows 10 password.

I have to enter password after boot

5. Try re-downloading the latest NPE if the one you got did not open/run properly.

For more info, you may Chat with Norton Support.

Please post back if this or any other comment solves your problem. THX...
