Hi All. I am trying Norton 360 `All-In-One Security`. Most AV programs I`ve used in the past can scan a single file or folder via the right click context menu. Norton 360 does not appear able to do this. Is anybody out there using Norton 360 able to confirm this or have I missed a setting somewhere?
Unable to find anything on this on the Symantec web site.
Cheers:

I dont think anyone here uses Symantec / Norton programs now.

Especially any AV program of theirs.

Norton 360 does not include the ability to manually scan individual files/folders. More information here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norton_360#Criticism).

That is a big assumption Speedy
There are many people here and elsewhere who use Norton without any problems.

To answer the question - Norton 360 version 2.0 just released has this ability.
Manually scan individual files and folders with a simple right click.

Try out version 2.0 when it is released this month then.

I just picked up a customers Laptop, had it suddenly go belly up last night after running slower and slower since Xmas when the kids were on it- has Norton 360 on it, RIDDLED with viruses and spyware.

Seems Norton's is being its very unhelpful self again.

Loaded the latest Nod32 Security suite - its going Nuts with warnings - So Step Back shes a gonna Blow :p

Quite right Saf,he meant those that know better.

And I think you would agree with that on this 2nd day of our lord 2008.

There are many people using Nortons blissfully unaware of other products, unaware of the need for anything else, like antispyware etc. Because it gets bundles with all these terrible PCs they buy from the Warehouse, HN etc.

And I have had the exact experience Wainuitech is having now. Its a pig of a thing.

Heres a in depth - mind blowing question :rolleyes: the 360 I think means full round protection 360 Degrees - BUT could it mean it doesn't work for 360 days of the Year ? :lol:

Don't worry everybody..this person will be back with more problems later when he/she finds that Snotrons is useless and they want to figure out why their computer is BSOD or won't even get THAT far.

We can all take shots at them when that happens. "I/We told ya so" would be appropriate then.

Age and experience is a great teacher...they'll just have to get some time in the saddle and see for themsleves.

Now...let's talk about Linux...!:waughh:
