Re: Why My Norton Antivirus took too much time for scanning ?

Hi jennysang:

What is your Windows operating system, and what is the name and version number of your Norton product (shown at Help | General Information | About)?  Are you using Norton AntiVirus v22.16.4.15 (released 12-Feb 2019) or some other Norton product?

Is it Norton Quick Scans or Full System Scans (or both) that are taking a long time, and how many minutes are the problem scans taking to run to completion?  Go to Security | History | Scan Results to see the Duration of your recent scans.

----------
32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.9.0 * Norton Security Deluxe v22.15.1.8

And how many files are you scanning? 

Has this longer time just started happening?

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Hello

Do you have scanning of compressed files turned off? That can shorten scanning time.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.
