how long do idle full system scans take?

I ask because when I look in recent cpu usage it said an idle FULL system scan took 5 minutes and succesfully completed. That seems kinda short. I ran a full system scan and that took around 20 min, wich seems more reasonable.

Re: how long do idle full system scans take?

If you click on Norton Insight, at the bottom of the CPU usage panel, it will show you how much or how little of your system is trusted.  It only scans the untrusted areas, which makes the scans much shorter.  Also, if a full system idle scan is interrupted, it will continue from where it left off when allowed to do so in idle time.
