If performance issues occur, Symantec is always one of my first suspects. :whistling:

Let me know what you decide.

i just can't believe it, i've used symantec on my last 2 computers. is there any reason to suspect that symantec puts more strain on the computer as there is more data? i can remember when we just got the computer... ahh the good old days :whistling:

Simply disabling it might not be enough. Plus it would leave you unprotected.

I would suggest downloading another AntiVirus and firewall.
Then uninstall Norton using the proper tool (which is why I asked for your version)
Then install the new software before you get back online.
