Security Deluxe annoying scans

Earlier the Norton worked quietly on background and I was happy :). Already some years the Deluxe for Windows-10 edition asks every some days to start a quick security scan, or performance scan manually... Today it asked to start performance scan. I started, it defragmented C and deleted Chrome temp files. After some hours today again it asked to start performance scan. It cleaned IE and Windows Temporary files. Also it annoying me now continuously to install or enable Chrome Extensions for Norton. All that is very annoying and wastes time. What happened to the Norton, what was earlier an excellent product? Is there some solution to stop Norton to bother me?

Check your Norton Settings - Tasks Scheduling and ensure you have the tasks scheduled to run Automatically. 

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Security Deluxe annoying scans

It looks your comment helped me understand what was happening to my Norton. Approximately on the same time when the Norton started boring me, I had changes in my lifestyle. I left using my earlier 24/7 uptime desktop computer and started using laptop almost always only on remote locations. So I didn't get to give for Norton the idle time anymore and the laptop was always working or was shut down ... Let see, how can I now figure out the problem. Anyway, thanks for the helpful answer!
