Norton Insight ? and Program Rule ?

I occasionally run a manual Full scan.  The scan was faster a few times, but most times it is normal and slow.  How do you run Norton Insight to get the faster manual Full scan?  I have tried running the program and scanning after and I have tried running the program and rebooting and then scanning.

Also, I have a question regarding a Firewall Program Rule.  I have observed a rule automatically created for outbound communication for Explorer.exe.  Is this rule safe?

Hello a123, you can check to see what your current scan settings are.  If the scan setting circled above is set to Standard Trust (default) or High Trust, you will see the benfits of Norton Insight in your manual scans.

As far as the explorer.exe firewall rule, yes, that is safe, it allows explorer.exe to successfully connect to the Internet, which is required by many Internet services in your operating system.

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,

AstroVet

Read the Knowledge Base Article Norton Insight .

Re: Norton Insight ? and Program Rule ?

I checked my Scan Performance Profiles Setting and the setting is Standard Trust.  Thanks for the answer on Explorer.exe.
