Norton Antivirus is a bit of a system resourse hog, try AVG 8.0 free version it is a lot better. I run it on all my machines.
You can download the free version here:

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.

Your question is difficult to understand. You might want to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware update it and run it if you are receiving random pop up boxes.

What the disadvantages of norton antivirus and what are the performance norton antivirus


Norton may slow down the performance of your computer,and it is a paid software what i think is instead of going with this you can download any of these free software (avg,avast or avaira) they all are free for one year and do the same thing what norton does without slowing down your computer.

Computer said norton virus had expired then computer went into hibernation and now will not restart


Try to restart the computer in safe mode or safe mode with networking. Go to control panel, add or remove programs (or programs and features if its vista), and try to remove norton antivirus completely. If that does not work, and you are in safe mode with networking, download the norton removal tool from the internet and run that to remove the norton antivirus completely. Your computer should be able to boot to the normal window, you can downlaod the norton antivirus latest version from the norton website or purchase the norton antivirus disc from any store. All the best.
