Norton 360 = slow PC???

  peabody 18:11 24 Apr 2007

Having purchased and installed Norton 360 on 2 PCs (you can install it on up to 3 on 1 licence) it seems to be slowing up the boot process alarmingly and everything seems to be running much more slowly than it used to. When I boot the PC(s) there's a load of hard disk activity before it finally settles down. if I view a web page it takes longer to render. Programs seem to take longer to initiate.
I found an old thread which referred to the Beta version which hogged system resources so I guess this is the root problem.
Has anybody else found similar problems/solutions?

Personally I have got Norton Internet Security 2007 and since installing it I have taken a huge performance hit. I also believe that the extra hard disk activity may be due to the fact that Norton automatically updates itself by default and as far as I know after this it carries out an automatic quick scan (but not sure about that).

You'll find many threads here about Norton slowing up computers I'm afraid.

Other users may be able to advise on how to speed things up a bit and which bits can safely be switched off, but as a general rule unless you have the latest fastest processor Norton is a bit of a system hog
