Sonar Advanced Mode: Aggressive vs. Automatic

What, if any, is the difference between Sonar Advanced Mode: Aggressive v.  Automatic for Automatic Scanning (which I assume is Real Time Scanning)

Does Automatic switch to Aggressive for suspicious files? Is that what Automatic Means?

Would Aggressive slow-down my browsing or PC.

If I set the response to Ask Me while using Aggressive, I assume that, if I made an intelligent choice, that NS would not delete a necessary or critical file because of a false positive.

Hello hok

I found this, but don't know if it needs to be updated or not.

Hope this helps.

@floplot,

Hi, your link takes me to a login screen.

Is this perhaps the link you meant to post?

Re: Sonar Advanced Mode: Aggressive vs. Automatic

In my opinion, you must set Agressive mode for SONAR. SONAR has accurate behaviour system, who see fact changes in operation System and programs. Each day (you can see last report by Symantec) descover 560 000-1 000 000 new threats and ypur protection must be agressive and strong.

Thanks All :-)

For now I think I'll leave it at automatic. On aggressive I'd probably delete a critical Windows System file :-)

I do know that a lot of knowledgeable peeps say to turn it up to aggressive, but they tend to be peeps who know what they are doing :-)

Hello Krusty

Thank you. I tested that link last night after I posted it to make sure it was correct. And it was last night. Yours takes me to the KB I thought I had posted. Looking at your link and mine, they look the same to me but I know they aren't.  The same thing has happened to someone else also.  Maybe being logged into the Norton account makes a difference or is it a problem with just NS?

Once you are signed into your Norton Account, you can use either floplot's or Krusty13's link and you will end up at the same place.  Now have a look in the upper right corner of the link.  You will see the familiar Hello (your name) - the same as you see on the main page of NS and NSBU in the upper right corner when logged into your Norton Account.

Hello Krusty

That's what I did also before I posted so it wouldn't show the whole thing which contains information about my computer. All I can do with my account is log into it. Can't get to devices or services. Management is turned on.

I edited my post, Flo.  You might like to ask for your posted link to be edited or removed.
