Turn off or turn on Idle Time Scans

Apr 26, 2010

The Idle Time Scans option is automatically turned on when you install Norton Internet Security. When the Idle Time Scans option is turned on, Norton Internet Security detects the time when you do not use your computer. Norton Internet Security then intelligently runs a scan, depending on the scan history of your computer. However, there may be times when you want to turn off Idle Time Scans.

To turn off Idle Time Scans:
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, in the Computer pane, click Settings.
  2. Under Computer scans, in the Idle Time Scans drop-down list, click Off.
  3. In the Settings window, click Apply.
