What do you mean by "sound like a transformer invaded it", i take it to mean it's making a lot of mechanical type noise, which would most likely be a fan problem....and if it is a fan problem it needs to be taken care of IMMEDIATELY!!!!! ....Unless you are prepared to open up your computer, i would take it to someone local who can clean it and listen to the noise to determine if a fan replacement is in order.
If you still have Norton uninstalled, i would recommend AVG 8.0 anti virus; it's free, and a very good program. Here's the link:

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. Prior to the 2009 version of Norton anti-virus, reviews claimed that the software required considerable memory to run, this slowed down the overall performance of the computer. 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."

Slow processsing


Probably caused by Norton. Please get CClean, a free download, and clean your compluter. http://www.ccleaner.com/

Then defrag your drive.

These things will help a little.

Check what is running int he background and remove what ever you dont regularly use.

Laptop infected with worm.


Nortons sucks. you should try an anti-virus scan with Malwarebytes, then you should install Avast as your resident protection. 

Be sure, when uninstalling Nortons, to use the uninstallation tool found on the nortons site. if you use the regular windows uninstaller, it will not remove all of it, and it will slow your computer down.

We have recently upgraded our Norton 360 - it


I wouldn't recommend installing McAfee as this can also slow down machines. Norton is notorious for this. Download AVG free Anti-Virus or Avast Anti-Virus & a firewall such as Zonealarm. Anti-spyware software is also a good idea. Spybot Search & Destroy & Adaware are good. If the computer is in a corporate environment you must purchase the software as the free licence only covers home use. Uninstall Norton when you have downloaded the programs & before you attempt to install the new programs.

In my experience Norton can become flakey at times. Make sure your subscription to norton has not expired. Otherwise try un-installing norton and re-installing it. Part of it may have become corrupted.
