Norton Reputation Scan

I have a question about Norton Reputation Scan. If I do a Full or Quick scan what does this do for my system?

I had this idea in my head that it'd improve virus scan time. Since it seems to audit your files and determine a reputation good or bad. Am I wrong?

So it improves Idle Time scans? Makes them faster.

SGFC,

Good question, and though I think so, I honestly don't know if it speeds up idle time scans or not.  Just off the cuff, I don't know whether idle time scans are set to run against definition sets or against reputation.  Perhaps someone from Symantec or someone far more knowledgeable can answer.

Regards,

Kelly

There are tool tips but I've had NIS for years and it always takes 15 minutes to scan. Idle scans take ?? idk.
