It will be easy enough to prove whether it is the Norton or not. Make sure you have it registered with Symantec. Uninstall it using Symantec's Norton Removal Tool.
See how it performs. I don't expect much improvement, but at least you can go back to the vendor with some ammo. Hopefully they wil give you some satisfactory help and then you can reinstall the 360 and login to Symantec to reactivate it.
If it does improve to "new" condition...hmmm, I'll have to think about that.
A question: Where you surfing much before installing the Norton 360? There is always a chance you picked up some spyware/malware that is causing the problem. Comment back.
