I'm not familiar with Norton Security Scan -- correct if the information is wrong.

During my web search I found 2 versions;
1. Trusted mirror sites like Softpedia and MajorGeeks - this may be an out-dated version.
2. Fake version by (GoClickGo Marketing) - modified version.

Visiting the Official landing page for Norton Security Scan https://security.norton.com/GetNSS.aspx the Installer redirects to 404 Not Found, but has the same URL as the GoMediaGo Marketing Inc.


1. If the file is downloaded from a trusted Mirror ie. Softpedia, MajorGeeks - Only options is to remove, as it's Expired.


2. Downloading from Pro-Scareware - Norton Security Scan from GoClickGo Marketing Inc. - This is a Functioning, yet Fake?
