I have a good configuration of my computer but was still troubled by it taking more time to launch any application after it completed the booting process. When I opened the Task Manager I realized that a process named “DoScan.exe” was running every time I booted up my system and disappears after some time.
What is DoScan.exe?
DoScan.exe is a startup scan linked with the Symantec Client Security Anti Virus that scans all startup files after every reboot. This is an auto generated quick scan that scans the system every time you reboot the computer, thus checking for the infection.
But the problem with this is that it consumes lots of computer resources. It consumes more than 50MB of memory, thereby making our computer go slow, though for a short period of time.
But if you are sure that your system do not get infected that often and can also handle the viruses with confidence, then you can consider removing this process from running each time after booting the computer.
1. Run the Symantec Anti Virus.
2. Click on Startup Scans on the left side.
3. Delete all the startup scans listed there, like the one saying “Auto-generated Quick Scan”.
4. To delete them, you need to right click on it and then select delete option.
DoScan.exe will not run now every time you boot.
