Very long Full system scan
It takes too much time for Norton to complete Full system scan. I’ve configured this type of scanning for running every week on Sundays. And as I see each time this scan lasts longer and longer…
Here is my statistics:
Year of 2015: >1.2 million files, from 1h 16min to 1h 22min
Year of 2016, July (perhaps because of one of updates) >1 million files, 2h 08min!
Year of 2017, since the 9th of July world record: 3h 05min!!! After a week from that: 3h 20min, last week: 3h 26 min (1.4 million files).
The same PC. The same files. I don’t install any programs except Flash player or Java updates (but this happens rarely). So 99% of files are the same and are not new.
That does Norton try to scan on my PC??
P.S. I’ve tried Norton Insight scan, selected ‘all files’, waited for the reputations to update. It shows that Norton has to scan about 13% of files. So this doesn’t help :(
