Re: Seems to be a virus
Okay. Start you pc, go to Start, Run, key in msconfig, go to startup, disable all start items, reboot. If you can get to the internet once you reboot then download and run Malwarebytes. That should get you going. If you can't get to the internet open your browser, go to Tools, Internet Options,Connections, Lan Settings, and make sure nothing is checked in the Proxy settings. There's more to do, but that will get you to a point where you can function. Make sure you invest in a good antivirus scanner.

1. Setup Windows for automatic updating. 2. Get a security suite that has occasional updating (i.e. MS Security Essential, MS firewall, MS Defender, Adblock, etc). 3. Get broadband internet connection so that you will have a better internet experience while it's updating in the background. 4. Use a more secured internet browser (such as Google Chrome with many security extensions like WOT and SiteAdvisor). 5. Don't download ****, know where you going, and what you're doing.

There can be several issues. I suspect virus attached to rootkit. First, check if your computer has all the necessary updates. Second, scan it with antivirus program for viruses and malware(can be that they are clogging your computer and connection. I recommend NOD32 and MalwareBytes.
Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it.
So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again.
If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.
