How long does quick scan normally take?

Hello

Every day Quick scan runs on my pc, sometimes twice  a day. It takes anywhere between 10 - 20 mins to complete and slows the PC down so it is useless for the duration.

Is this normal? Not being able to turn it off is a real pain - so why does it take so long?

Re: How long does quick scan normally take?

Hello Keith

Welcome to the Norton Community Forums

The length of time for an idle quick scan can vary depending on the size and condition of your hard drive. One thing that will help you is to cut down then length of time it takes your computer to be in the idle state. The default is 10 minutes. I have mine cut down to 1 minute. This allows all the background activities to start quicker and therefore get done quicker.

You can cut the time it takes for your computer to become idle in Settings>>Administrative Settings> scroll all the way down to Idle Time Out. The dropdown has various length of time.

Keeping your computer clean and up to date will help to cut down  the time also. Making sure your Norton product is up to date helps also. There are various things that can determine the length of time that it takes. Cleaning out of temp files helps also.

Thanks.

Re: How long does quick scan normally take?

Hi KeithPenn,

FWIW, my Quick Scans vary from 3 1/2 minutes to just over 7 minutes - dependent on the number of items scanned.  I do have all the Settings in Floplot's screen shot set to the Default values.  While I agree with her comments re: Idle Time Out, I do not agree with her other two settings of 1 minute.  From the Help (?) for the other two topics, I call your attention to the following:

Automatic Task Delay:

If the Norton-specific automatic tasks start as soon as you start your computer, the performance of your computer might become slow. Delaying the startup time for such automatic tasks improves the performance and efficiency of your computer.

Automatic Resume Delay From Sleep Or Hibernation:

If the automatic tasks start as soon as you resume your computer from hibernate mode or standby mode, your computer may perform slow. Delaying these automatic tasks improves the performance and efficiency of your computer.

Just my 2¢.

OK Thanks. I have no programs running from start up apart from HP adviser. I clean every week, I defrag every month and sometimes weekly, my hard drive is under 20% full. As to the automatic tasks I am unsure what that all means! But will try adjusting that.

I have also tried running quick scan as a stand alone - ie once the PC has stopped running it. It took between 6mins - 9 min so  still quite a long time. It almost seems as if when the PC starts or wakes from hibernation, there is lots of disk activity and everything just slows.

I took the liberty of bolding the info I am going to respond to and hope to be able to clarify what is being talked about.

Please go to Settings > Administrative Settings > Background Tasks Configure [+] and you will see the tasks that run automatically.  What the bold means is that if these tasks were delayed during Sleep/Hibernation or need to run upon start-up they are all going to try to run one after the other (or simultaneously) depending on their priority.  

Thus by delaying the start of these tasks, will not "load down" the system as you are complaining about.  I recommend you change those settings to default and see how things go.  !0 minutes for hibernation and 20 minutes for Start up are the Default values.
