Hello a newboy here and a novice.

Recently installed Norton Internet security 2007. It made my Toshiba Equium laptop slowwwdown so uninstalled it. When I went to use my Internet Explorer 7 would it not activate unles I went into system tools and used the IE7 without addons. Went through the "manage Addons " section and eliminated any reference to Norton. Lo and behold it was back as normal. I have another oddity devloped since then which is when I want to put the laptop into hibernation can't do it. Have altered settings to the "ask me what to mode " i.e Hbernate, Standby. Shutdown, Restart. only Shutdown or restart seem to work.Went to the store where I purchased my laptop from this moning. They didn't have a clue only restore the entire system!!!!!!!!!

Can anybody help me Pleaseeeeee.

Belated Happy New Year

Hi chajun...

First, download and run the Norton Removal Tool on you're machine and see if things change. If no joy, we'll look at some advanced power settings.
