Files loaded into memory
Common virus and security risk loading points, including registry keys and startup files

To disable the Quick Scan that runs after virus definitions update, follow the directions for each type of computer in your environment.

The Defwatch Quick Scan does not use the exclusions or exceptions that are set for the Default Quick Scan, which runs when the computer starts. You cannot configure the DefWatch Quick Scan by using Symantec System Center or in the Symantec AntiVirus program interface.


In Symantec AntiVirus 10.1 and later, you can turn off the Deftwach Quick Scan for managed clients by using Symantec System Center.
