Interesting Norton Scan Question

I think this is an interesting question - so excuse my ignorance if it is
not :-) . I am running xpsp2 and have NAV 2004.
If I scan the two directories I have in java (c:\prog files\java), Norton
tells me it scanned *way more* files than the number of files that is listed
when you do a right click/properties on the directory (or folder if you
Here is an example -
If I scan one of the directories with Norton it tells me it scanned 15,306
files - but if I do a right click/properties on that same directory in
windows explorer, it says there are only 546 files (which is correct since
you can tell by doing a quick look at all the sub directories).
So where is Norton pulling all these files from. I looked at the screen
while it was scanning and it looked like it stayed within the directory.
Please explain (and I hope I'm not being dense).
BTW, when I scan all of C: the total number of files scanned is something in
the neighborhood of 160,000 files (IIRC), so it makes no sense that the
directory in java has 15,000 files scanned, and the other directory in java
that I scanned listed approx 12,000 files after the scan.
