Norton Internet Security 2009

Hi all
Just wondered if anyone else had noticed this happening recently. I have NIS 2009 which as always works brilliantly. However for past few days when I log on it seems to be doing a short scan whereas previously the sidebar gadget indicator used to appear instantly marked secure and my internt connection was always on in seconds. Now it only connects when this scan has finished albeit very quickly.I know this isn't a big deal but just wondered why it is happening. I dont think it is a recent update as all my other machines operate as before.While talking about logging on I have to say I have never experienced any delays in start up when using vista. Literally after putting in my password all is ready to go after about 10 to 15 seconds which is good.
This continues to happen its just that my internet connection isn't available until this quick scan has completed. It only lasts about a minute or so but was not happening before. Any ideas welcome.
Thanks
Paul
