  1. I have recently started using Norton 2009 and I use Firefox. When downloading files it scans which I want to disable it.

    Tried looking through the setttings and Googled but cannot find a solution.

    This would do it ;)

    Norton Removal tool

    Oh sorry that's the only worth while setting I know on Norton :blush:

    Good luck, I hope that your computer still works in a month too (let alone right now)

    Hi kimsland,

    I actually meant just to DISABLE the scanning feature when downloading files from the Internet. I don't want to remove Norton completely.

    Sorry, I only know how to remove Malware, not allow it to bypass users security
