Just a suggestion

Because it takes up so much of my computer's resources and causes a major slow down, it would be super nice if there was some visual way to see when Norton is running a full system scan. I understand the slowdown but currently, I have to open Norton, request a full system scan and only then will it show that a scan is already in progress. Maybe the icon in the lower right taskbar could flash or maybe there could be an additional icon that shows only when a full system scan is underway. At least that way I would have an easy way to identify why my system is running so slowly without worrying about what else is wrong.

Hello DrWayda

You can schedule when and how often you want the fully system scans to run. I have mine set up to run once a week on one particular day and time when my computer will be idle so it can get the job done in the shortest time possible. It is scheduled for a time when I am asleep.
