Can you remove nortons in the add remove program? Then try to install. Also in the search windows type in nortons and delete what comes up, Also synmantic (I think this is how it is spelled) and remove any thing that pops up. Norton is OK but for the money there are better..

Boost your computer performance

<p><span> <p>Your computer's performance mainly depends on the "Processor" and "RAM" availability. I am sure that whatever computer you have is capable enough to run your normal daily tasks smoothly. It should not stuck or freeze while checking emails, writing documents, watching movies or songs, printing or doing business online. These are some very basic tasks and require minimum resources to execute. Any computer with a normal system configuration should work them out easily, but we still face sluggish performance or freezing up while doing these tasks.<br /> <p> The reason behind this is the processor and memory status of your computer at that time. You can check the real time status from "Task manager" which you can pull up by pressing "Ctrl + Shift + Esc" key on keyboard. Following steps would optimize the processor and memory uses of your computer and make it more efficient:<br /> <p><br /> <p>&middot; Check running processes at background:<br /> <p>Every application we use has several processes running in background to make it work. Sometimes we are not even aware of the extra unwanted software or applications which start automatically and keep running in background and eat up our processor and memory usage. This you can check by Task manager's "processes" list. Also some of these applications show their notification icons in "system tray" area which is where you see the system time on your desktop. Try to keep minimum application running in background and this will make our system smooth as it will have more resources to utilize.<br /> <p>Follow the below steps to disable unwanted applications:<br /> <p>1. Click on "start", click on "run" or press "Flag key + R" from keyboard. Type" msconfig" on the "run" window and hit "enter".<br /> <p>2. This should bring "system configuration utility" windows on screen.<br /> <p>3. Click on the "startup" TAB on the top menu. This tab holds all applications which start automatically when you turn on your computer.<br /> <p>4. Check the list carefully and uncheck the ones you don't need.<br /> <p>5. If you are not sure about some application, type its name in google search, figure out its use and decide to whether you want to keep it running or disable it.<br /> <p>6. Once you are done with the List, click on "Services "tab on top.<br /> <p>7. This "services" tab holds all important programs which give a platform for other software to work.<br /> <p>8. Check the box in bottom which says "Hide all Microsoft services".<br /> <p>9. Now you have the list of non-Microsoft programs running in background. Some of these might be you antivirus software, backup software or messengers and others may be unwanted ones.<br /> <p>10. Identify the not required items and uncheck them.<br /> <p>11. Click on "Apply" and then "OK".'<br /> <p>12. It might give you a windows asking for "restart computer" or "Exit without restart ".<br /> <p>13. Choose "Exit without restart"<br /> <p>14. Close all other windows make sure none of you important files are open and then restart your computer.<br /> <p>15. If later you want to enable any services back, just follow the same process and "Check" them in the list.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>&middot; Keep track of free disk space on root drive:<br /> <p>Free space on root drive (mostly c :\) is very important as this space is used for virtual memory or paging, hibernation and other system requirements. Ensure that at least 3 - 5 GB space should be available on root drive. If you have less than this, delete some temporary or junk files from "temp" and "%temp%" folders.<br /></span><br />

My Xerox Wokcentre 4260 is stuck on one job. Some pdf file prints first 4 pages and then just sits there not doing anything, and the job still have "printing" status, and blocks all other tasks....

Solution : Perform an On Demand Image Overwrite (ODIO) Image Overwrite Security protects against unauthorized retrieval of confidential data from the machine by removing image data that is left when jobs are processed. When started, all of the physical areas of the hard disks holding job data are overwritten with a series of alphanumeric patterns.
There are two options for On Demand Image Overwrite: Standard and Full Overwrite. Standard ODIO will overwrite all jobs stored in image data as well as fax card image data. Standard ODIO will not overwrite fax mailbox, Poll store (mailbox 0) and dial directory information, or folders created with the Store Job feature, if these features are installed on the machine. Standard overwrite takes about 30 minutes. Full overwrite takes approximately 160 minutes to complete.
NOTE: Full ODIO will overwrite and delete all fax image data, including mailboxes, Poll store and dial directories on the fax card. Full ODIO will also overwrite any images that have been stored in folders created with the Store Job feature. When On Demand Image Overwrite is initiated, the machine is taken offline until the overwrite is completed. Any existing jobs in the queue are terminated, including print, fax and LAN fax jobs.
NOTE: Overwrites can also be performed on a per-job basis, immediately after each job has been processed, using Immediate Image Overwrite. See the Related Items below for additional information.
CAUTION: The machine should not be in Diagnostics mode when the overwrite is started. (The Touch Screen indicates a status of "Diagnostics Mode". This mode is used by Customer Service Representatives when servicing the machine.)

Do not power off the machine while an overwrite is in progress.

To perform an On Demand Image Overwrite from the Control Panel:
  1. Access the Tools screen. See the Related Items below for additional information.
  2. Select [Security Setting].
  3. Select [Image Overwrite Security].
  4. Select [On Demand Image Overwrite].
  5. Select the [Standard / Full Overwrite] button to switch between the two options, and select the required option.
  6. Select [Overwrite Now].
  7. The Overwrite Confirmation screen will be displayed. Select the [Overwrite] button to begin, or select [Cancel] to cancel the On Demand Image Overwrite. The machine will be taken offline and will be unable to receive any incoming jobs. The Image Overwrite will proceed to overwrite all image data on the hard disk.

    NOTE: If Embedded Fax is installed, all Embedded Fax compact flash data will also be overwritten.

  8. When the overwrite is complete, the On Demand Image Overwrite completion screen will be displayed.
  9. Select [Close]. The Disk Overwrite Confirmation Report will print. This details the status and time of the overwrite. The Network Controller will then reboot and network functionality will be unavailable for several minutes.

    When the machine has rebooted, verify that the overwrite operation has completed by viewing the Confirmation Report (under Confirmation Details). The Job Information: Status ESS Disk parameter should read "SUCCESS".

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.
