Monitoring background jobs of Norton Internet Security

Apr 18, 2010

The Norton Tasks window provides the details of the background tasks that Norton Internet Security performs and lets you view and monitor the background tasks. Norton Internet Security runs most of the background tasks when your computer is idle. Performing all background tasks when your computer is idle helps your computer to run at peak efficiency when you use your computer. However, you can manually start or stop a task at any time.

You can also specify the Idle Time Out duration. After the Idle Time Out duration is reached, Norton Internet Security identifies the computer as idle and run the background tasks. You can use the Idle Countdown bar to confirm the idle state of your computer. You can also view the CPU graph and memory graph to obtain the performance data of your computer.


To monitor background jobs
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, click Norton Tasks.
  2. In the Norton Tasks window, view the details of background jobs.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To run a background job, click the Play icon that appears before the name of the background job.
    • To stop a running background job, click the Stop icon that appears before the name of the background job.
  4. Click Close.
