Take any advice you can about the Un-installation of Norton and remove it before you enable your new AV.

Do you feel competent enough to check the registry? You may well be surprised how much Norton crap may be hiding. It would also pay you to run C Cleaner.

yes have ran ccleaner things are just speeding up all the time not that clued up on diving in the registry any help would be appriciated will also look around the forum

If you have no one to look over your should the first time, it's best not to delve.

I have recently changed from ZA to Comodo Pro 3, and although I have not had major problems with ZA (I stayed with version 6), Commodo looks much better
