Hello Jeny and welcome to Geeks To Go.

A person cannot run multiple anti virus programs all at once because they will encounter errors.

You must run only one single anti virus application at any given time.

Uninstall Norton by using this tool.

Uninstall Avast by using this tool.

Please inform us how things are then.

If I may add something,

Windows 8 comes with an antivirus installed already which is just an improved Windows defender.
It pretty much replaces Microsoft Security Essentials so don't try to install other antivirus software unless you want to remove the built-in.
You can read more about Windows 8 and it's built-in antivirus here.
