Its probably fast because its not using anything Norton. The software is based on Sunbelt's CounterSpy. You can tell by looking at the files after the install. You don't have to install the toolbar either. Unpack the toolbar install package and there will be a file called norton_spyware_scan.exe. Just run that installer.

Cheers

umm.... may i ask WHY you would want a browser toolbar to search for spyware?? Why would you want a browser toolbar to begin with????
