Many thanks to all who replied and offered advice last Sunday about uninstalling Norton anti virus and recommendations for free anti virus software.
I am now using Avast and I am very pleased with it. My computer is now running a lot faster so it was definitely worth it.

I was a bit wary about uninstalling Norton but seems to have gone ok.

Thanks again

I am a big fan of Avast and have used it for a few years. Spread the news!

HAve you set up the Avast secreen saver?

Scan when screen saver comes on so you never need to remember to scan your system.
