Norton Antivirus Idle Scan

By | 2011.02.14

I always thought that when Norton Antivirus ran an “idle scan” it meant it would scan the computer when I was in front of it. But very often I find Norton scanning my disks while I’m sitting in front of my computer. So I thought I’d investigate. It seems I was idle about 8 minutes ago. At that point Norton started an idle scan, but when I came back it didn’t stop.

Nice! I love programs that decrease the speed of my computer by a high percentage. (irony)
