Hi rededdie;

Norton eats a lot of PC resources that is why your computer is running slow. you might want to try another antivirus.

Both Norton and Mcafee eats a lot of resources

My compaq CQ56-219WM (recently restored to factory settings) runs extremely slow and i get a constant "high CPU useage" message. how do i fix this please?


When Norton is active it scans the computer for viruses and this will slow the computer down until it finishes.
You computer will improve with more RAM especially if has 512Mb of RAM.

Its causing my computer to run extremely slow. When I am trying to watch videos and so forth, it continuously pauses my videos. I did not have this problem until I installed Norton on my latop


This is normal for norton. Nortons is an extremely hungry (resource wise) antivirus solution for windows. Try disabling it when you want to watch videos or play games other than that you could try to go with one a little less hungry like CA or TREND.

I think may be its due to the you are trying to active Norton 360 or Nav with the product key of nis or trying to activate with expierd product key

1.you need to remove existing Norton program with Norton removal tool
2. Download and run Nis2010

to download Norton removal tool go to www.norton.com/nrt or www.syamantec.com/auotools
Download and run the first tool

Once we finished the un installation we need to download and run Norton Internet Security 2010
to download Norton Internet Security 2010 go to this link www.norton.com/nis10

I had problems with an extremely slow pc. I replaced mcafee with Norton 360. Norton found a few trojans,etc. All removed and i undertook a disk defragment. Then Windows xp home edition did not start in...


Both Norton and Mcafee are known for slowing pc's down.

Boot your PC as normal, but as its starting keep pressing the F8 key until some options appear on your screen. On of which will be "boot windows in safe mode".

Select that option and a windows shell should open.

Once open got to Start - Control Panel - Add/remove programmes and uninstal both mcafee and norton.

Once complete, reboot and see how you PC runs.

Assuming its working ok now, go back to your control panel - security centre - enable windows firewall.

Go online to "Filehippo.com" and download and istall the free version of AVG (anti virus software) once installed let it scan your system.

Then go back to Filehippo.com, download and install Ccleaner. This has loads of tools, :-
1) Cleaner clears all the tempory internet files of your pc.

2) Startup - you can reduce the number of programes you want th start up when booting.

You don't need any here because you can access all programmes via start but I'd leave AVG and any securtiy related to start and delete the rest. But its probably better to just disable the rest until you're happy with which programmes auto start.

Good Luck

Please help me to reinstall my norton 360 version 2.0 on my pc. the product was bought on the 2/19/09.


Hello,

Make sure you have the CD key or have registered your product on Symantec. You will also need any other Norton product keys if you have them installed on your computer.

Best advice I can give is to first run the Norton Removal Tool which can be found at Norton Removal Tool at Step 4. This will fully remove all Norton products from your system.

After you run the Removal Tool, you can reinstall the 360 software, run Live Update, and enter your CD Key to reactivate. It should pick up where you left off as far as Days Remaining.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Note: Should you still have a problem, try the on-line support that is included in the price of your 360. Access it through the Help selection on the menu. It is very good.

My parents HP Pavilion zd8000 (2.8GHz) runs very slowly


It's probably the anti-virus software AND not enough memory.

Un-install the Anti-Virus (Symantec/Norton?)
and use the FREE AVG from grisoft.com.
double the mamory in the computer (If you have 512MB, upgrade it to 1GB).

Hope this helps!

Cannot manage to load norton security programme


hi there,

although, not specified what you did but i presume 2 actions:

1. Running the program and cannot be completely loaded, it means that there's a program that block your Norton Internet Security 2008 to run, and that might be a Virus or Trojan. or someone is hacking in your pc (might be). and this will happen, if your Norton Internet Security 2008 is not updated and/or you install an internet plug ins in some of your visited website and through that plug ins the website administrator has a link in your pc to access, but not all.

solution: try to uninstall and fresh install your Norton Internet Security 2008 but before you do that make sure that you have a supported docs like cd key and response code from Norton if any, to successfully install your anti virus. and before you install, unplug your connection from internet (install offline, after installation, update it and scan your pc).

2. you install your Norton Internet Security 2008 and cannot be completely loaded, it means that Norton program is corrupted. please have a fresh copy in cd if any and install it.
