You might have other security on your system that is causing a conflict. Go to add remove programmes


Control panel

Then uninstall other security

Start, Run, type


and click OK.

Scroll down to 'Security Center' and double click it. Click the Stop button and change the Startup type to disabled. Restart your PC.

Does that help?

there seems to be no other security on my system, the startup type is set to disabled

Personally I do not like Norton and if I were you I would remove it (I am assuming that you got a free trial with your PC). To do this:

Download AVG click here

Download ZoneAlarm click here

Disconnect from the internet.

Uninstall Norton click here=

Install AVG and ZoneAlarm.

thank you, for a novice like myself is it simple to download and uninstall software?

I,ve got Norton on my system and I haven't had a problem. Downloading should be no problem. Uninstall via control panel

You will find it to uninstall under:

Control Panel > Add and Remove Programs > Symantec
