Create a custom scan

Apr 25, 2010

Instead of running the default scans that are listed in the Scans pane, you can create your own scans that meet your specific requirements. This option might be helpful in many cases. For example, you can create a scan that checks a folder in which you store downloaded files.

You can create a custom scan in the Scans window.

After you create custom scans, you can schedule them to run unattended on specific dates and times or at periodic intervals.

  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, in the Computer pane, click Scan Now.
  2. Click Run Custom Scan.
  3. In the Scans dialog box, click Create Custom Scan.
  4. In the Norton Internet Security Scan Wizard, click Next.
  5. Select the items that you want to scan. You can use both options to select the combination of items that you want. Your options are:
    Add folders Select the folders and drives to be scanned.
    Add files Select the individual files to be scanned.
  6. In the resulting dialog box, select the items that you want to scan.

    If you select a folder, all files in that folder are included. If you select a drive, all folders and files on that drive are included.
  7. To add the selected items to the list of items to scan, do one of the following:
    • In the Scan Files dialog box, click Add.
    • In the Scan Folders dialog box, click Add.
  8. If you need to remove an item from the list, select it, and then click Remove.
  9. After you have created the list of items to be scanned, click Next.
  10. Type a name for the scan by which you can identify it in the list of scans.
  11. Click Finish.
