Norton Anti Virus is annoying me!

  AdventCalendar 00:34 25 Jan 2003

Since Ive installed it, its been getting on my nerves.

It slows the loading of pages, and when the pages do load, certain buttons, and pictures are not there, just a white box with a red cross in them.

I have altered the settings, to the lowest, and the pop up option is turned off...but i must be doign something wrong, because not many other people are complaining.

any ideas???

i've been using norton for 2 years now, with no problems either. what version of norton are you using? i found that nav 2003 is faster than 2002 and doesn't slow the comp that much.

I also have been using Norton for several years without any problems. At present I have Norton Internet Security 2003 with Windows XP - never had a problem.

I've also used Norton Antivirus for years and had no problems, I trust it to be the best there is (I've tried others and found this to be the best)

I also have used Norton for years and found it excellent, however if you don't like it you can return it to Symantec for a refund within 30 days ~ read the smallprint on the box.

I understand that if you use XP with Norton, it should be the 2003 version. I have just installed System Tools on a new computer and it is perfect. On my old machine with System tools 2002 I did have to uninstall after the first attempt and have another go, but this can happen with any program. Why not try uninstalling and reinstalling again?
