A disk scan may occur periodically every week or two, this occurs on its own and doesn't have to be initiated by you. If you think there is something wrong with your computer since you did nothing to start the scan, there is no need to fret, it is part of the program's natural sequence of events. You can also schedule scans to occur at regular intervals, if you wish to do so look in the Symantec menu under 'Scheduled Scans'. All of your files will be scanned and checked for viruses. If you need all of the necessary memory from your computer, you can stop the scan but it is recommended that you start a scan again later.
