Norton runs automatic tasks as it quietly works to protect your computer. These automatic tasks include scanning for viruses, monitoring your Internet connection, downloading protection updates, and other important tasks. These activities run in the background when your computer is turned on.

If any item needs your attention, Norton displays a message with the information on the current status or prompts you to do something. If you do not see any messages, then your computer is protected.

You can open Norton at any time to see the status of your computer at a glance or to view protection details.

When a background activity is in progress, Norton notifies you with a message in the notification area that is located at the far-right of the task bar. You can see the results of the latest activities the next time you open the Norton main window.

Turn on or turn off automatic tasks

  1. Start Norton.

    If you see the My Norton window, next to Device Security, click Open.

  2. In the Norton main window, click Settings.
  3. In the Settings window, click Tasks Scheduling.
  4. In the Task Scheduling window, on the Automatic Tasks tab, do the following:
    • Check the feature that you want to run automatically.

      Check the Tasks check box to check all the features at once.

    • Uncheck the feature that you do not want to run automatically.

      Uncheck the Tasks check box to uncheck all the features at once.

  5. Click Apply, and then click Close.
