Schedule a custom scan

Apr 25, 2010

You have complete flexibility in scheduling custom scans. When you select how frequently you want a scan to run (daily, weekly, or monthly), you are presented with additional options. For example, you can request a daily scan, and then schedule it to occur every two days or every three days instead.

You can schedule a custom scan in the Scans window.

To schedule a custom scan
  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, next to the custom scan that you want to schedule, click Schedule.
  4. In the Schedule dialog box, click New to enable the scheduling options.
  5. Set the frequency and time at which you want the scan to run.

    Most of the frequency options include the additional options that let you further refine the schedule. Set the additional options as required.
  6. When you are done, click OK.
You can also create multiple schedules for a scan. For example, you can run the same scan at the beginning of your workday and at the end.
To create multiple schedules for a single scan
  1. In the Scans dialog box, next to the custom scan that you want to schedule, click Scan scheduled.
  2. In the Schedule dialog box, check Show multiple schedules.
  3. To set an additional schedule, click New.
  4. Set the frequency and time at which you want the scan to run.

    Most of the frequency options include the additional options that let you further refine the schedule. Set the additional options as required.
  5. Click OK.
