Did you just switch users instead of logging off? Are you staying with Norton after the trial if not many recommendations in Helproom for antivirus & antispyware progs mostly free and threads will give links.

If a notice came up from the right hand side toolbar it is usually a warning from Norton firewall and may have said it has blocked the Intrusion http Lop Toolbar Activity Intruder Local Host 2425 if this is the case you would not have to do anything.

If you open Norton firewall you should find a section that would list all attempts to access your computer that have been blocked by Norton.

If you think that you have been infected do a scan with Norton anitvirus or you could do a free online scan click here

you can down load a free Firewall and virus checker from the internet. I would suggest doing this befor the trial runs out.

You can download something like Zone Alarm Firewall click here and Avast anti virus click here

You can download all the free software while Norton is running but you will have to uninstall Norton before you start installing the new stuff - so make sure your not connected online while you are doing this as you will be temporarily be without protection.

I may be cynical, but I had Norton Internet Security for many years before switching to AVG et al. It was noticeable that I had no threats or viruses until very close to the time my subscriptions expired when I would receive notification of a security alert! Coincidence?

I would suggest you go here, click here and run the removal tool.
When I changed from Norton, and started using the freebies, I had a few problems because not all the program had been removed. This should be all you need to ensure wahtever you install runs ok.
