Items like quicktime, adobe kodak etc can usually be disabled without losing functionality. If you uncheck an item and reboot and lose a needed function, you can go back and re-check it.

Has become extremely SLOW? I've run Norton 360 tune-up with no improvement. What's the deal?


I personally like and use Avast Free AntiVirus. A virus could be slowing you down greatly.

I also like Ccleaner (.com for the website) which cleans out old cookies, files and junk that will slow your computer down.

I also would recommend you do a defragmentation and disk cleanup.

I like to do all the things above to keep my E1505 running good.

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.

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
