Norton Products' Scanning
I have never really understood how these work because I have heard differnet stories of how these work (below).
01. Real-Time Protection: Does Norton Auto-Protect continually Scan, or does it only come in to Action when you Open, for example, a Document? If it continually Scans, what does it Scan?
02. Checking for Threats in a Manual Scan: If Norton Products Scan for all Threats, then why does it "Check for:" certain Threats during the "Scanning Commonly-Infected Areas and Start-Up Files..."? Is it just "Checking for:" Threats in the "Commonly-Infected Areas" of the computer, or is it Checking the whole Computer? And how does the Norton Product decide what Threats to Check for? And why does the Norton Product "Check for" more Threats during a Norton Full System Scan than a Norton Quick Scan?Message Edited by Floating_Red on 06-02-2009 10:06 PM
