When Norton is active it scans the computer for viruses and this will slow the computer down until it finishes.
You computer will improve with more RAM especially if has 512Mb of RAM.

Norton Advantages & Disadvantages


<p>Advantages & Disadvantages:-<br /> <p>Though Norton anti-virus products and its various versions are one of the best protection software, Norton anti-virus software has some advantages and disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Advantages: -<br> <p>When Symantec redesign Norton for Widows compatibility, Norton becomes one of the best protection software in the market. With its every release Norton introduced new features or upgraded features. Norton release new versions almost every year. Some unique features of Norton anti-virus are Sonar protection, File Insight, Network Insight, Power Eraser tool etc. which provides more reliable protection against viruses and other malicious code. It can run at background to work silently. It will warn you before running or installing malicious programs. It can protect your computer spreading viruses from your Facebook feed, e-mail attachments. Simple user interface will help you to work more easily. Norton provides PC utility tool to tune-up your pc and Backup and Restore tool. You can solve your problems online from tech support, where you can find answers for possible problems, use-one-click-solution-first to solve your problems manually and customer help desk, where you can interact with tech support personnel for your query.<br> <p> <br> <p>Disadvantages:- <br> <p>While Norton offers variety of benefits to its users, there are also some drawbacks as well.

Computers that have an old copy installed might experience this resource issue.<br> <p> <br> <p>Uninstalling is another drawback of Norton. If you attempt to remove Norton Antivirus, the uninstallation process proves difficult. This is one area where Norton fails to compete with its competitors, according to PC Antivirus Reviews. Reviewers asserted, "Uninstalling Norton is nowhere near as good as uninstalling McAfee, which sets the standard for fast, clean, easy uninstallation for anti-virus software."

Norton securitynorton are you cant fix my laptop screen for games


Try This:

Sometimes when we add an Antivirus protection over another these things happen. What I suggest is to run NRT (Norton Removal Tool)

http://download.cnet.com/Norton-Removal-Tool-SymNRT/3000-2239_4-87943.html


Once Norton AV has been removed check to see if you might have other Antivrus software on the PC and remove that as well.

Now try your Zgyna game.If the game is now working fine. Reinstall Nortons Security to the PC.

Good Luck!

My acer laptop 7741z-5731 hangs after every other second. mouse doesn't move n it shows processing.it has become so slow that it takes 5 to 10 minutes in opening any window. please give me the solution. i...


Something is running in the background that is using processor time. Try shutting down NORTON (disconnect from internet first) Open several windows, play a game and play some music to stress the processor a bit, see if it is still happening. If it isn't Norton is your problem. Before I switched virus programs and ditched Norton, I had a lot of this going on. Norton seems to do a check every few seconds and I was never able to discover a way to turn that off. If you can handle the "techs" Call them and ask them to help you fix this... otherwise... Get another anti virus solution. (I use AVAST internet security)

My graphics card is fast at one point then slows down!


Make sure the driver for the notebook from the manufacturers website is installed, and not the video driver from Microsoft's Windows Update. After that, update Java, Adobe Flash and Adobe Shockwave. Finally, check for updates for DirectX (version 9.0C). Post back your results, please.
