Question about Computers & Internet
Why are you using anti virus on a mac? Its not like the PC computers out there, 2006, the first virus for a mac was discovered, the PC's they have millions of viruses - so the need for anti virus, but macs, the viruses are so uncommon.
First ever virus for Mac OS X discovered 2006!!

Our Advice No matter which operating system you use, there will always be people out there trying to make a fast buck by exploiting known bugs, system vulnerabilities, or lax users. I advise spending your money not on Mac antivirus software but on a good phishing-protection application; at the very least, consider using a browser that offers built-in phishing protection. Your Mac’s file system is probably safe from malicious hackers, but your identity may not be.""
Just remove the norton and stop paying for it. your safer then most of the people in the world, just by owning a mac and using it instead of a pc.
There are maybe a hand full of viruses ever written by people for the macs. They are all human made and they don't pop up by themselves.
Honestly this is the first time I actually hear or read about someone using a antivirus software on a mac.

Why in the world are you running Norton on a Mac Snow Leopard OSx? You do not need it, and even if you did need virus protection which you don't, Norton should be your last choice. There has never been a real world virus released for the Mac OSx, so you are wasting computer resources and money. Uninstall Norton and forget it.
