How do I set the weekly scans to Scan Drive C Only!

I've been searching and this blasted product only allows me to either select from a list of well-known folders or scan everything.

 

I only want to scan drive C for a specific group.  Setting up exclusions for every drive would be ridiculous.

 

Anyone?

Alrighty, so Symantec's answer and solutions.

 

Answer:

Our product does not support the simple and common ability to configure the scanning of specific locations on a computer.  You can only chose from the locations that we've determined that you must scan.  Or you can scan EVERYTHING.  We don't support a middle ground.

 

Solutions:

Currently your only solution is to EXCLUDE everything you don't want scanned.  So if you only want to scan C: you'll need to exclude EVERY other drive.

 

Hmmm, this doesn't seem like a good product or solution.
