Is there anyway to get rid of SMART SCAN , which just recently appeared on my Norton 360 . After I did the 3 scans it told me all the things I needed to do to improve the performance of my computer. One thing that really annoyed me is that it reported I have a weak wifi password, and my browsing nd personal history could be visible to others. Well, how in the world does Norton know my wifi password?
Actually the wifi where I live belongs to another family member. So I can't change it if I wanted too.
After the 3 scans, I clicked I wanted to fix the problems the scan found, just to see what it would say and GUESS WHAT! I will have to pay Norton $49.95 two times to fix the problems, and I believe most of the problems if not all could be fixed by me, and if I don't know how to fix one of the problems, I can google it and get the answer. I read on this forum where someone asked how smart scan was different from quick scan. Well. I have part of the answer. You don't have to pay extra for quick scan.
PS: I just did the 3 scans again. First Scan: No Viruses or Malware Found in all 3 scans I did. Second Scan (Network Scan} Same comment in all 3 scans I did concerning weak wifi password.
Third Scan (Advanced): All kinds of issues , some of which could be solved by clearing browsing history ,( which I do at least once a week) too many items on startup, some app problems using too much memory, etc.
The first advanced scan reported the above, but the second and third I did in advanced scan reported none of the problems and I did absolutely nothing to correct any of the issues listed the first time I did the advanced scan.
