Do yourself and your computer a favour, dump the resource hungry useless beast that is norton AV.
Absolutely true !
All of systematics products are absolute rubbish and junk, except a few ... partitionmagic to name one
But the antivirus, antispyware and firewalls are an absolute disgrace, some people may think i'm too harsh but i just think it is ... the software is hardly EVER helpful, a combination of good third party software combined together are better ... extremely better for that matter
