I purchased this computer, 2 gig memory last year. I had just put in Norton and it is running SUPER slow. How can I reset this computer to run normal? This is not the laptop


I have known several people who have had similar issues with norton, It seems to be quite resource hungry, if you really want to keep norton then I would suggest a RAM upgrade to give your machine more power, alternatively, you could try another antivirus, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it works well for me.

However, check to see if norton is running a system scan, this will almost definately make your machine run slower.

First for adware and virus removal I recommend threatfire which is a free download. I personally use this also.
It can be download here: http://www.threatfire.com/download/

For computer speed and optimization, I recommend iobit advanced systemcare free which also free. I have used this to optimize my system also. It also helps with internet optimization.
You can find it here: http://iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html

I hope you are satisfied with these products as I use them also and they have done great things for me. If you have any more questions, please let me know.

I am attempting to install Norton Internet Security 2009. My McAfee Internet Security 2008 runs out in two days. Norton has indicated that I will have to remove an amount of existing programmes (about 20!)...


Norton will not replace the programs.

As long as you have the program disc, just re-install them after installing Norton.

Back up all data (saved documents) first.

I need to remove norton from this emachine to install trend micro internet security pro how ever it tells me that the specific path not found nplease advise how to remove. thank you ...


First of all I am assuming that you didn't correctly uninstall Norton in the control panel through add and remove programs right? Delete all traces of the program that you can. Do a computer search on your hard drive for "norton". You will see what is left. You will also have some registry keys that need to be removed. I suggest downloading a free program that is great called Ccleaner. Do a regular scan...then do a registry scan. Always backup your registry. Restart your computer and do it again.

Now your norton should be cleared out and you can install your other software suite. You need to make sure that dll's that norton shares are not deleted. Norton is a pain in the **** to get rid of.

Ccleaner also has an uninstall utility that may work just a little better than the windows version.

Make sure you restart. After every software change just in case.

Please completley remove the norton security from my computer...trying to run something comcst says you need to do something to rmove it...please do asap ...thank you


Go into Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. Wait for the list of all programs to load up.

Go down through the list and look for Norton Internet Security. Remove it. It will take a very long time, sometimes 1/2 hour or more depending on speed of computer. Reboot the computer after it has been removed, especially if/when it asks you to reboot after the process.

After rebooting, go back into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Look for Symantec or Norton's Live Update, remove that as well. Also remove any other Symantec/Norton Anti-Virus or Internet Security programs as well. Then reboot the computer again.

Your computer should be much, much faster now. So now you need a new Anti-Virus program...

I've found in my experience that Norton and McAfee do more damage to some computers than good, besides the fact that they are severely over-priced. I would NEVER install either Norton (Symantec) or McAfee on anyone's computer. Matter of fact, I just had to remove Norton 2008 from a lady's computer today, an old Dell 2400 because her system was too old and slow to run new Norton.

My suggestions for much better anti-virus would be...

- Kaspersky Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- Trend Micro PC-Cillin Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- AVG Free Anti-Virus at http://free.grisoft.com, they also have more elaborate versions with more protection for a cost.

I personally use AVG on my computers, and my family does as well. It's very effective and gets out viruses that even Norton cannot remove.
