Disable schedule for full system scan and disable quick scans
I have a problem with Norton Security. My system drive (C:) is 150 GB. I have 2 Data partitions (1.2 TB each).
I never want to do a full system scan. I set the Configure for Full System Scan to "Do not schedule". But this setting becomes unset by Norton eventually and begins a full system scan. I have to go back into Norton, set "Do not schedule" again, and reboot the PC. I want this setting to stick and never do a full system scan. Is there a way to do this?
Is there a way to disable Quick Scans? As I understand it, every time Norton does an Automatic Live Update, it does a Quick Scan. I don't want this to run automatically. I would like Norton to inform me of a Live Update, and then inform me it wants to do a Quick scan, which then I could either not accept, or schedule a Quick Scan. My C: drive is 150 GB and a Quick Scan uses my hard disk too much.
In general, with Norton Security with these 2 processes using considerable resources, I am ready to ditch Norton Security and go with Windows Defender and Malwarebytes. Any replies welcome.
Edit: can I just add my exclusions for scans, and then let the Full System Scan and Quick Scans run in the background? Is this a solution?
