How to prevent full system scan from skipping files?
My name is Peter. I have been a Norton user for a few years now, I have switched from antivurs to internet security back and forth between internet security and 360 for the last couple of years but this year I am with the 360 Premier Edition. I always noticed when I run a full system scan that it skips files. How do force Norton to run through every single file? When I run a full system scan I expect it to check all the files. I have over 1,500,000 files. Norton seems to skip outs files that I have on my hard drive. It skips out around 18,000 files. I would imagine some of the files being skipped would be OS related but I can't be sure if it skips other regular files as well. I do have a lot of downloads. I know how to prevent Norton from searching certain files but I do not have that setting enabled. So All files should be accessible for scanning. Any info?
