Access Norton Internet Security scans

Apr 21, 2010

You can use Norton Internet Security scans to secure your computer from all types of viruses and unknown threats.

You can access Full System Scan and Custom Scan from the Norton Internet Security main window. You can access Quick Scan from the Norton Internet Security main window or the Norton Internet Security icon on the taskbar.

You can also scan any particular folder using the context scan feature. The context menu scan is available when you right-click the folder that you want to scan.


If the Insight Protection option is turned on, when you right-click a file, the shortcut menu displays Norton Internet Security and then Insight Network Scan. You can use this command to scan a file using both local definitions that are hosted in the Cloud.

To access the scan from the Norton Internet Security main window
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, in the Computer pane, click Scan Now.
  2. Click the scan that you want to run.
To access the scan from the notification area
  • In the notification area on the taskbar, right-click the Norton Internet Security icon, and then click Run QuickScan.

    By default, Insight Protection option is turned on. In this case, Norton Internet Security performs an Insight Protection Quick Scan simultaneously with a traditional Quick Scan.
To scan a particular folder
  • Right-click the folder, and click Norton Internet Security > Scan Now.
