How do you change scheduled time for Norton to scan your PC?


Every time I start the computer it runs Norton's virus scan. Takes up to an hour, unless I cancel. How do I keep the scan from starting every single time the computer starts or restarts? I haven't been able to find in the Norton set up information how to have the virus scan un-pinned from the start up menu.
