Full System Scan Now Has HUGE Difference in # of Items Scanned
Returning from a Thanksgiving trip on Friday, I ran a “Full System Scan” on my Windows 10 OS desktop PC – and the results were:
Scan Time: 0:04:36:56
Total Items Scanned: 6,145,785
Total Security Risks Detected: 0
That is pretty typical for me.
Then today, Saturday, November 26, 2016 after quite a few Norton Updates, but NO other Setting changes or file deletions, I happened to run it again – with MARKEDLY different results:
Scan Time: 0:00:29:34
Total Items Scanned: 680,338
Total Security Risks: 0
I repeated it again, after another Update, with very similar results of the markedly faster and fewer items scanned.
This does not seem right to me. Why would there be a four hour difference and a 5.5 MILLION items scan change on a "Full System Scan" run in less than 24 hours?
