Why does my Google and you tube keeps on freezing there are no viruses I have Norton antivirus every thing else is fine please help I tried everything

Go to CNET download and get a free utility called "privatefirewall 7.0" and get a copy of the free Malwarebytes also.

Then delete all those other problem plaqued antivirus programs...including Windows Defender and especially Norton antivirus. Those two programs so overly scrutinize everything that every page you try to open that you can't get anything done.

That Privatefirewall program runs as a great firewall and alerts you if something is suspicious without bogging down the site you are looking at. Then once a day or a week run Malwarebytes to clean out any malware or viruses and you have good protection without using those super resource consuming programs like Norton.

What is symantec antivirus??????????

Symantec/Norton AntiVirus (SAV for Windows, NAV for Mac OS X) is a virus protection program distributed by the Symantec Corporation, offering effective protection features, including infected file quarantine, online virus protection updates, and an automatic scheduler. SAV/NAV is designed to start running as soon as your computer's operating system starts. It runs in the background, checking all vulnerable files for possible infection by malevolent programs called viruses and worms. SAV/NAV does this by looking for the identifying signatures of these worms and viruses and comparing them to known viruses for which it has files. When it detects an infected file, it notifies you and manages the infection according to your preferences.

When I plug it into my laptop my usb reads it but no files are showing

Your Storage Device might have infected by virus/worms etc.. So before you do anything, scan with an updated antivirus. Perhaps the virus made your files and folders hidden. After you scan the Device, go open any folder - click Tools - Folder Options - 8366140.jpg

Click View tab - Click the Radio Button "Show hidden files and folders" - Again Uncheck the "Hide
Protected Operating System file" - click Apply - Ok.. and see if you can see any files in the storage device. If you do so, you'll notice that the icons of the folders fade (pale yellow) and when you check the properties of the folder you'll will see the "Hidden" checked and faded, means you can't make any changes with it. It is best to move the files and folders within the folder which are infected, and delete the infected folders after resolving the problem. Reverse the process with the folder option after you successfully resolve...
