  Forum Editor 10:46 AM 01 Nov 09

Have you tried the Insight Optimiser, and if you have, what were your impressions?

what is the insight optimiser where do you find it and what does it do

Open 360, point over 'PC security protected' and it's last in the drop down list, called 'Run Norton Insight'.

Took me a while to see it too.

At least that's what I assume the FE means?

found it ran it does not seem to have made any difference to anything

I dont think at present it is finding anything to optimise it cancels after optimise is clicked.

I have read all the advice and am not sure exactly how it is used. Will read again after lunch is digested.

Ran it, couldn't see any appreciable difference.

Well, on my new install, 98% of files are trusted, 2% to be scanned.

However, I've not even noticed a performance impact to scanning, so not sure I'll notice a speedup.

I have 99% trusted 1% to be scanned still not absolutely sure of what that means.

Much improved from V3, only have 11% of files that require scanning whereas V3 I had at least 25%. Seems that "trusted file" data has been increased greatly, which is good as some files in V3 were clearly ok to trust but were flagged as not. This seems to have improved.

currently have 88% trusted and 12% require scanning. I do have some files that will worry any of the a/v systems, being various system recovery/repair all-in-one cd isos and the necessary files to build them.

There are a couple of false positives amongst them and have had to tell N 360 to ignore them.
