Use Norton Insight to view files

Apr 19, 2010

Norton Insight provides information about the Files of Interest that are available on your computer. Norton Internet Security lets you view specific categories of files based on the option that you select in the Norton Insight - Application Ratings window.
The drop-down list that is available in the Norton Insight - Application Ratings window provides you the following options:

All Running Processes Lists the processes that run on your computer at that point in time when you selected this option
All Files Lists the Files of Interest
Startup Items Lists the programs that start when you start your computer
Highest Performance Impact Lists the programs that consume maximum resources of your computer

Norton Internet Security displays a list of top ten resources that highly impact the performance of your computer.
Highest Community Usage Lists the files that have the maximum community usage
Most Recently Installed Lists the files that you installed most recently

The list contains the files that you installed in the last 30 days after you installed Norton Internet Security.
User Trusted Files Lists the Files of Interest that you manually trusted in the File Insight window

This category does not list the files that do not belong to the File of Interest even if you manually trust the files. However, Norton Internet Security excludes all of the manually trusted files from Norton Internet Security scan when you configure Scan Performance Profiles to High Trust.

You can also remove the user trust from all of the Files of Interest that you manually trusted. You can use the Clear All User Trust option next to the drop-down list to remove the user trust.
Not Trusted Files Lists the files that have the confidence level as Not Trusted

You can manually trust all the files that are not trusted by clicking the Trust All Files option next to the drop-down list.
You can view file details such as file name, trust level, community usage, resource usage, and the date on which the file was installed. There may be instances when the trust level of a file has changed or a process running might have stopped running. You can refresh the Norton Insight - Application Ratings window to update the file list, file details, and coverage percentage. The coverage meter provides a graphical representation of the percentage of the Norton Trusted files and the total Files of Interest. The higher the percentage, the lesser time the scan takes.
To view the list of files
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, click Application Ratings.
  2. In the Norton Insight - Application Ratings window, select an option from the drop-down list to view a category of files.

    You may need to scroll the window to view all the files that are listed in the details area.
  3. Click Close.
