Because it is big and heavy. If you're using a free trial then download and install Avira Antivirus instead. You will need to use the Norton removal tool first though.
If you have a licence then download and install Norton antivirus netbook edition which is the same package but with the bloat cut out.

I purchased this computer, 2 gig memory last year. I had just put in Norton and it is running SUPER slow. How can I reset this computer to run normal? This is not the laptop


I have known several people who have had similar issues with norton, It seems to be quite resource hungry, if you really want to keep norton then I would suggest a RAM upgrade to give your machine more power, alternatively, you could try another antivirus, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it works well for me.

However, check to see if norton is running a system scan, this will almost definately make your machine run slower.

I am on dial up internet and have installed, Norton 360. My computer is very very slow now. Has anyone else had this problem and what do you use for internet software? Thanks Shirley


Norton is a very secure antivirus....
But it also have its disadvantages....
Its updates are heavy and it usually continuously scan your computer making it very slow...

I recommend that you use a lighter antivirus like avira, avast and avg.....

and I know that AVG can be updated from pendrive meaning you can donwload the update file on another computer at work for example and run it on your pendrive to update it....

Hope it helps
Regards

Slow computer


Norton is a huge resource pig. Back in the mid 90's I swore by norton. Now, however, i dont like it. Try uninstalling it and going with Kaspersky, or for a free option, Comodo Internet Security, which has 5 stars from cnet.

Norton 360 says scann is running when it is not. cann not connect to support. "program not respondig" message


I've this happen to me in the past. In my case, a virus had infected my computer and corrupted Norton to make it appear like it was running when it wasn't. Make sure the problem isn't a virus first, and then try to reinstall Norton if there is no virus. I would try a virus scan at safety.live.com or download AVG free from downloads.com

Ok then i guess you should try repairing the NORTON by running the installation again and choosing the reapir option or the next option is to use another anti virus.

you can visit www.avast.com/eng/programs.html and download avast! 4 home edition free edition.
please restart your pc before installing the avast.
after installing try updating and schedule a boot scan by
  1. cutting and pasting this "W62911071H4800A1106-PJY5XRR5" when prompted for the registration key.
  2. click on the menu icon at the top left of the avast window.
  3. click on "schedule a boot scan" and restart your pc

Good luck !!
