For keeping the system protected, users should remove the malicious program. Delete all its files from the drive and restart the PC. Run a Norton scan and keep it fully secured.
Norton scanning process is getting interrupted
While running the full system scan, few users reported that their scanning process is getting interrupted. Whenever they start scanning, an error message appears and the program stops running. The scanning interruptions mainly appear when the system has lots of junk files. Norton scans those files but can’t remove them and stops working. If you want to run the Norton scanning process without interruptions then you should delete all junk from the device. Temp files often interrupt various programs. Delete those files and then run the Norton antivirus. You can delete unnecessary files using the clean out tool. Use the clean mgr tool to search the junk. Select all the files which are of no use and remove them. Restart the system to apply changes and scan the system with Norton.
Live Update is an inbuilt utility that updates the Norton programs automatically. When the new update arrives, it installs the update on the device immediately. But the Live Update is showing an error then your Norton setup won’t get updated. This tool shows errors when there is no space to install the update. Open the computer and check the free hard-disk amount. You have to increase the space by removing unnecessary programs. Users can also add an SSD to the computer. Once the Live Update finds the free disk space; it will install the latest Norton update instantly.
