What Graphics card do you have?

It has been known that installing Norton can interfere with stuff like that, download the latest drivers for your graphics card and reinstall them and it should be all good. I have a huge dislike for the real big commercial antivirus companies as their programs seem to take over the whole system and are resource hungry, avast only for me

If you have a graphics card installation CD stick it in and re-install all the drivers, then try to change the settings. Hopefully that'll work.
