Why does running a full scan now require an internet connection?
Like previous versions, version 22 uses a combination of scanning techniques for optimal protection.
Although you still have a local set of definitions stored on your computer, this year’s Norton version relies more heavily on cloud based definitions than in previous years.
I am probably over-simplifying the process, but there are a number of benefits to using the cloud definitions. Those that come to mind are listed below.
I hope that helps to answer your question.
